Biggar v Hamilton 28/10/18

Hamilton start 2nd half of season in fine form.

Hamilton U15s travelled to Biggar on the day the clocks went back and with a 23 player squad they were hopeful that he extra hour in bed would be of benefit to them. Prior to the game the players were set the goals of 1- Tackling low 2- Dominating the tackle area, and 3 - attacking structure off first receiver.
Conditions for rugby could not have been an better and the young Bulls started quickly for once, and with three minutes on the clock they were awarded a scrum in the centre of the field, scrum half Callum Wilson passed the ball to Jamie Bruce who wasted no time in getting the ball out the back, slick passing between the backs found full back Callum Bruce in space as he went over in the corner for the first try of the game, conversion missed by Lewis Robertson. Hamilton were looking to move the larger Biggar pack around the field with quick ball and using their back line. This was shown in the sixth minute when Biggar were penalised for offside, Jamie Bruce took the quick tap and the ball found its way to Lewis Mooney in the fifteen meter channel. Lewis moved forward committing two defenders, and thereby leaving Jamie Thorpe free on the outside, the pass was timed perfectly allowing Jame to run if for the second try, conversion by Lewis Robertson. Hamilton were in control of the match at this early stage and after nine minutes extended their lead, following a scrum in centre field the ball was passed to debutant Callum Ferrie who ran a superb line cutting through the Biggar defence and over the line for his first try of the day.
Biggar were keen to show that they are a better team than the first nine minutes had shown and for they took the ball to Hamilton where possible, but were unable to penetrate the defensive line.
The next score of the game was in the eighteenth minute, Biggar kicked a 22 drop out to the Hamilton backline with winger Joe Fairweather running the ball back towards the Biggar 22 before passing wide to Callum Ferrie who found himself against two front row forwards and he easily outpaced them to go over for his second try of the match.
Biggar were next to score after Hamilton were penalised at a scrum, some indiscipline then cost the young Bulls another ten metres allowing the hosts to kick into the corner and from the resultant line out Biggar went over for what was to be their only try of the half.
This was still a contest despite the victors lead on the scoreboard, and on the twenty fourth minute Hamilton hooker Daniel Forrest won a turnover at the ruck and with the quick ball Hamilton put it through the hands with Lewis Mooney, Callum Ferrie both carting he ball forward before putting Jamie Thorpe in for his second try of the match.
In the final play of the first half Hamilton were awarded a scrum on their own 22, the scrum was stable allowing quick ball for Hamilton who once again got the ball wide to the winger Lewis Robertson who ran the length of the park to score under the posts.

Now to the second half - Biggar restarted the game and kicked the ball to Lewis Mooney who charged upfield, the Biggar defence was not best but that did not detract from the power and skill of the young Hamilton 7, who passed the ball to prop come winger Arron Burgees, he continued the run upfield and committed the final defender before popping the ball back inside to Mooney who had continued his run and got his reward as he ent over unopposed.
Unfortunately at this point my ink ran dry, so whilst I know Hamilton scored a further three try and Biggar crossed the line twice details are sketchy.

A good victory for Hamilton who know that they can still improve on their structure but achieving two of the three pre match goals is a huge positive.
