P7s Enjoy Trip to Biggar

The P7s had a cracking day of rugby away to Biggar.  16 players took part and won all 3 games  against a resilient Biggar team.  With the newer players getting plenty game time, Linlithgow continued their great tackling and support play that has been their trademark this year.  We have been working on the ruck in training and the team as a whole was much improved in this area during the games.  Still work to do, but really good to see us improving as a team week in week out.
