Pickaquoy, Saturday 3rd November 2018
Orkney RFC 31, Hillhead Jordanhill RFC 22
Orkney started brightly and went into an early lead against the wind with a try from Sean Cursiter which was converted by James Linklater,
Hillhead replied shortly after with a long range penalty and after thirty minutes added to their tally with a long range try.
Despite having the majority of possession for the reminder of the half Orkney could not break the Hillhead defence.
Half time 8 -7 to the visitors.
The East tournament was held on a blustery but thankfully dry day.
P4/P5 tournament :
4 teams contested this tournament with 2 from West, Kirkwall and the home team East.
West Greens started the completion with a 8-2 win over Kirkwall Whites. While losing the Whites showed good character and stuck to their task well. Next up West Blues beat East 8-4 but this was a close match with the score at 2-2 for a while before the Blues pulled away to win.
