GALA travel to Hartree Mill on Saturday to play Biggar in probably the most important game of the season so far for both teams.

And the club are hoping to attract a large travelling support to cheer the team on.

Gala top National League One with 79-points from 19 games. Heriot’s are second with 77-points and Biggar third with 74-points.

The pair met at Netherdale last month and in an incredible game Biggar led 28-0 after only 26-minutes thanks to four converted tries from Ewan Stewart, Conor Lavery, Fraser Jackson and Euan McAra.

Gala fought back with tries from Taylor Wilson, Angus Dun and Jack Easson before Craig Bachurzewski extended Biggar’s lead. Euan Dods then gave Gala their four-try bonus point but despite a late effort from the Maroons, Biggar held on to secure a valuable victory.

Last week, Gala captain Liam Scott told Border Rugby TV: “The first half an hour against Biggar wasn’t us but the second-half when we came back into it was everything that we are all about, character and determination. I think that how we came back into that game and made it a contest, and we very nearly won it, that stands testament to our intentions and our ability.

“So I am totally confident that we can go out there and do the job in the next three games and we are looking forward to it. We will be working on our discipline. We need to keep that up and just make sure we are playing that shape and structure, giving ourselves depth. And that margin for error that sometimes we are guilty of giving the ball away, we just have to work on it and keep on going.”

Gala are hoping to organise a supporters’ bus for game which will leave Netherdale at 1pm with a £5 nominal charge.

Fans are asked to confirm their interest to the office by email to or by phone so that the club can judge interest.
