U15 v Lasswade
The Under 15s hosted a fine Lasswade side and, although succumbing 17-7 in the official league match, scored the first try that Lasswade have conceded in 4 matches so far so that’s something to take away from this fixture.
Our ability to play with the best is beyond doubt, and all that is needed is regular numbers and game time and this side will evolve to challenge next year’s league.
Two players stood out for us this weekend : Struan’s mighty charges to the goal lines and Magnus’s loose play, which kept us in the hunt but it should be noted that everyone stepped up for this challenge.
S2s v Marr
Marr arrived with an under strength team owing to recent injuries and initially had to borrow a Boroughmuir player. From the start Boroughmuir were keen to play open rugby.
A much improved rucking performance meant there was plenty of ball for the backs to work with which resulted in the first two trys scored by both centres. Strong running from the forwards resulted in a try for Danish who burst through the Marr defence.
Good passing and offloads meant that Boroughmuir scored a further six trys in the second half. Marr didn't give up and, as a result of their defensive efforts, two of their players had to retire injured and were replaced by Boroughmuir players.
A good performance overall. Final score: Boroughmuir 35 - 0 Marr
S1 v Marr
Owing to a number of injuries unfortunately Marr could not field a team.
Boroughmuir Mini Festival (P1/P2s)
The first ‘tournament’ adventure of the season for the B’muir P1 / P2s was a great success, with the weather making it a fantastic day for all!
Fun, fun, fun was the theme with over 80 players (40 from B’muir!) being set loose to play touch and fun games. Kids from Heriots, Biggar and RHC all came together and despite some only having tried rugby for 6 weeks (or less!) gave it a go with a big smile.
Judging from the food consumed in the clubhouse afterwards, definitely a success!!
The P4-7s and U16s didn't have matches and all trained in the sunshine.
