Internal Rugby Match Report: Picky 23-11-13
The Doonies proved too much for the Uppies running out comfortable 7 tries to 5 winners. However, neither side was for giving up bragging rights this early in the festive season!
The Uppies actually started the stronger of the two sides, running in a couple of early scores - the first following a superb off load from Gary Farquhar. But as the half wore on even the unbiased referee, Gary Coltherd, had to penalise the Uppies for consistently slowing down possession, and lying all over the ball.
As a consequence the Doonie possession statistic started to increase and gaps started opening up around the pitch - Ali Linklater and Gary Nicolson making the most of the wide open spaces.
Sunday 24th November 2013
Caithness 40, Orkney 15
Orkney’s U16 girls travelled across to Caithness on Sunday morning for their second ever competitive match. Having secured a hard-fought and narrow 33-31 win in their first match, at Pickaquoy on November 10, it was likely that Caithness would be out for revenge on home soil, and so it was in the first quarter.
Where: at the Club
When: 8pm this Saturday, 23 November
All members and guests are welcome to test their intellect at this open quiz night, Graham Garson is in charge of the questions, with a curry thrown in for good measure.
