Just in case you missed all the unofficial official announcements yesterday you can watch the official official Lions Squad announcement here live from 12 noon:
Orkney have beaten Perthshire 54-17 in the National League Division 3 clash at Pickaquoy this afternoon.
The home side led 19-17 at the end of what was a fairly close first half, with an opening try from Craig Slater and a double from Philip Ross. Danny Bain converted two.
However, it was pretty much all one-way traffic in the second 40 minutes as Orkney ran in a series of tries after some entertaining running.
Tom Croy (2), Alex Kansour, Dean Campbell, and Craig Slater all scored tries in the second half, with Orkney's Man of the Match Scott Russell converting all of them.
Report on the Second XV game v Caithness Second XV

This was a good hard game played in a the first class spirit of rugby
Orkney have lost out 12-29 to Glasgow Academicals in their National Division 3 clash at Pickaquoy this afternoon.
Accies scored three first half tries - two in the opening ten minutes - with Orkney having to be content with one in reply, under the posts from Kevin Pepper.
Two more tries for the visitors in the second half stretched their lead, with Orkney's points coming from a David Hamilton try next to the posts after the forwards battled to the left corner. Danny Bain converting this one.
Again we had a good competitive Internal game out in Dounby last Saturday with two determined sides playing good rugby.
It was great to have a contingent from Westray joining players from both the East and West in mixed teams led by Steven(Chopper) Wylie captaining the one team and Derek Robb captaining the other side.
While a score of 42-12 may suggest a one sided match it was far from that and the scores were hard come by. Try scorers for the winning team were 2 for both Graham and Steven with Steven Grieve, Tubber, Jiffy and Hamish all contributing one a piece. Ian Donaldson got 1 for the opposition as did captain Derek Robb.
Orkney RFC U16s 74 - Montrose RFC U16s 0
Picky, Sunday 19 March 2017
Orkney under 16 Rugby Team entertained Montrose in the Caledonian Shield Quarter Final. Montrose arrived with only 14 players due to a number of the squad preferring a trip to Murrayfield to support Scotland rather than a long road trip to Orkney with a overnight stay. To even the numbers it was agreed that the home team would also only field the same number of players.
