Aberdeen - Saturday 12th October 2019
Aberdeen Wanderers 12, Orkney RFC 52
On Saturday 12th September Orkney RFC travelled away on league business to play Aberdeen Wanderers. This was the second time Orkney had played Wandies this season. The earlier game had been in the Caledonia shield where Orkney had run out comfortable winners.
Orkney travelled with a strong playing squad despite several players either injured or unavailable. Fortunately, the ferry journey was calm and smooth as the team had to “rough” it in pods due to school holiday season filling all the cabins.
Playing conditions were excellent; minimal wind, warm and a dry pitch albeit fairly short and narrow.
