Picky - Saturday 16th March, 2013
Orkney 28, Gordonians 13
With Orkney going into the final two home matches of the 2012/13 league campaign seeking wins in both to keep out of the relegation zone, they wasted no time on Saturday in achieving the first half of the necessary back-to-back victories.
Visitors Gordonians were caught napping as a kick through from Magnus Flett in the opening minute set James Linklater on his way to the line for the opening try, catching out not only the opposition, but many of the spectators gathering on the touchline at Pickaquoy on what was a relatively calm and mild afternoon. The try went unconverted, with Linklater’s kick just wide.
