Biggar delighted with share of the points

Hamilton played host to Lanarkshire rivals Biggar in what was to be a well contested game for the first league fixture of the 2018/19 season.

Biggar were unable to field a full team, but in the first ten minutes they were in total control of the game and were deservedly ahead after try's from Fraser Simpson and Callum McLemon, Finlay Crozier converting both. It was to be another ten minutes before Hamilton scored their first try, with captain Jamie Thorpe crossing the line conversion by Callum Wilson. Hamilton were now making their numerical advantage count and looked to get the ball wide at every opportunity, putting full back Callum Bruce through where he scored under the post, Wilson was unsuccessful with the conversion. Biggar were by no mean out of this match and regained the lead before halftime after a strong run in the middle had the Hamilton defence rushing back, a combination of quick ball and crisp passing put full back Crozier in at the corner, however he was unsuccessful with the conversion.
The second half saw Hamilton score first, after winning turnover ball in their own half the forwards were quick to identify the space out wide and passed the ball out wide with Thorpe able to run from his own ten meter to score under the posts, conversion by Callum Bruce. Once again Biggar were straight back at Hamilton with flanker McLemon powering through some weak tackles to score, conversion by Crozier. Hamilton drew level then took the lead with two try's from winger Joa Fairweather, Calum Bruce converting both to give Hamilton a 7 point lead. Biggar had put to much into this match and to their credit fought back to level the scores with five minutes of the game remaining.
The final minutes were like the rest of the game a hard fought contest, with Biggar knocking the ball on just meters from the line.

A share of the points was no more than Biggar deserved, and both teams look forward to the challenges to come in the weeks ahead.

Understrength Biggar prove to be a good test in season opener
