Pickaquoy Infield - Saturday, February 21, 2015
Orkney RFC 27, Glenrothes 10
Orkney RFC won the BT Caledonia Shield with a hard-fought 27-10 win over Glenrothes at a breezy and chilly Pickaquoy on Saturday afternoon.
The double-header fixture also gave Orkney a bonus-point win to stay top of Caledonia League Division 1.
On a day when the packs dominated proceedings on the pitch it was second row David Hamilton who was voted Orkney's man of the match.
With this being their final home league fixture, Orkney will be seeking a run of good results from their remaining five away trips. This journey begins with Mackie Academy FP next Saturday and takes them through to April 18, when they are due to finish the campaign against Strathmore.
The Shield win sees Orkney progress to the national semi-final away to GHK in Helensburgh on March 7. The winner of that contest will go to Murrayfield for the national final.
