League game @ Hartree Mill, 5/1/13
|Dalziel 2nd XV:||10|
The Second XV were away to their Lanarkshire rivals Biggar. Biggar scored three early penalties to lead 9-0, which looked likely to be the half time score. However, as half time approached, a few lapses in concentration and indiscipline allowed Biggar to score three quick tries to take the score to 30-0 at half time.
Biggar secured the bonus point shortly after half time, and after that Dalziel came back into the game. A catch and drive at a line out was followed by a pick and go which resulted in Back Row Niall McKenzie touching down to score Dalzielâ€™s first try of the afternoon. Stand off Andy Scott then showed a brilliant piece of individual skill to slice through the Biggar defence to put Centre Euan Watt in for a score.
With the score at 35-10, Dalziel were now playing for pride, and after a Biggar Flanker was sinbinned for an illegal hit on Stephen Baird, they continued to push for a third score. In doing so, the ball was knocked on and was gleefully scooped up by a Biggar player who raced in to score under the posts to take the final score to 42-10 to the hosts.
