THIS was another massively impressive performance from the Biggar squad to remain at the top of National League One.

Heriot's have been dominating teams with their big pack and while they provided a stern challenge to the Biggar pack it was the visiting side which took the honours.

Andrew Jardine kicked an early penalty for a 3-0 Biggar lead.

Just five minutes later Ross Jackson raced over for a try - converted by Jardine.

Biggar went 17-0 up on 24 minutes when Luhann Kutze was put in under the posts by centre Rory Hutton.

Barely half an hour on the clock and Biggar were already in sight of an unexpected bonus point try.

A spilled ball gathered by Louis Meyner led to Heriot's getting on the scoreboard.

Graham Wilson reduced the lead further with the conversion.

Having conceded a try, there is nothing better than to score one of your own.

Kutze scooped up a rare and untidy lineout ball and somehow managed to weave his way through the defence before chipping ahead and winning the race to cut inside with the ball for a magnificent solo try.

Jardine added an excellent conversion for 24-7.

With five or so minutes of normal time remaining Heriot's seemed to go up a gear, demonstrating why they were in second place in the league.

Finlay Hutchison sped over for a try, converted by Wilson.

A couple of yellow cards was making life difficult for Biggar either side of half time.

However Biggar’s defence was its usual solid self throughout the 10 minute period when Kutze was in the bin.

A penalty allowed Lavery to kick to the corner and another line drive ended with hooker Stewart crossing for Biggar’s bonus point winning try.

Jardine was just wide with the conversion.

With less than 10 minutes remaining Biggar made further changes, Andrew Peacock, Alan Warnock and James Barr on for, respectively, for Campbell, Orr and Lavery.

The best try was saved for last with Rowan Stewart feeding outside with one hand to the supporting Kutze, followed by Conor Lavery popping the ball through his legs to flying prop Donald Voas.

There were several good attacking opportunities created before the last wonder try which just added the icing on the cake.

Biggar: R. Orr, R. Stewart, R. Hutton, A. Jardine, R. Bradford, C. Lavery, L. Kutze, D. Voas, E. Stewart, R. Basset, C. Borthwick, J. Campbell, C. Mulligan, J. Orr, R. Jackson. Reps: P. Davidson, A. Peacock, A. Warnock, J. Barr, R. Lavery.
