Carson expects free-flowing game when Highland host Biggar


By Andrew Henderson


Highland Rugby Club head coach Dave Carson expects to see a top game of rugby when he welcomes Biggar to Canal Park tomorrow.

The two sides are well-acquainted with each other, having done battle for the top spot in National Two last season.

Biggar got the better of that exchange, registering wins home and away over the Greens and claiming the National Two league title.

In a season where the introduction of the Super6 has meant there is a lot of uncertainty at the top of club rugby in Scotland, Carson knows exactly what to expect from Biggar.

And memories of last season are still fresh in his mind.

“It was close, I think it was 12-10 they beat us at Canal Park,” Carson recalled.

“It will be a fantastic day, we will hopefully get a massive crowd down, but it will be tough. They’ve recruited really well in the summer, they’re a big side, a good side.

“They scored 50 points at home last week, and we scored 50 points away, so it will be some game of rugby."
