Biggar Rugby Club enjoyed a fine day of rugby on Saturday, as they won their own Sevens tournament. Hosts Biggar won the men’s event in a final that saw last year’s two finalists going head-to-head, denying charity team Hearts and Balls a rare double, as their women’s team took the honours for the second year in a row.
Saturday saw 15 teams, 180 players, 10 officials, 32 games, 218 tries and 1335 point scored. From all of that, ladies’ player of the tournament was Hannah Walker of Rugby People, while Biggar’s Mark Bertram took the men’s award, both of which were judged by the referees.
Off the field, there were 80 pre-event lunches, and over 250 spectators enjoyed 600 burgers and six vegan sausage rolls. Ten teams contested the gents’ event, while five took part in the ladies’ section – Biggar had hoped for 12 and 6, respectively, but were happy with what they got.
Biggar entered two teams in the men’s event, with the first team enjoying a clean sweep of four victories against Edinburgh Agrics, Peebles, Musselburgh and Newton Stewart.Read more on dailyrecord.co.uk
