U18s League / Cup D/H
Picky, 29th March 2015
Orkney U18s 34, Moray U18s 7
Orkney U18's looked to continue their run of form against Moray RFC in a double header match for the league and the quarter final of the Caledonia Plate. Orkney were fired up infront of a novelty home crowd and this inspired the boys to show everyone watching how far we had came as a team since their last home game against Gordonstoun in October.
ST ANDREWS DO THE DOUBLE AGAIN
Mini Rugby Festival held on Saturday the 14th of March 2015. On a cold but dry day there were 5 teams in both the P6/7’s and the P4/5’s sections, with a welcome side from Shetland making up the fifth team in the P6/7’s.
Caledonia North U18
Thurso, 14th March 2015
Caithness U18s 14, Orkney U18s 27
Orkney travelled across the water to Caithness for a league fixture with their largest team of the season, registering 21 boys. The Caithness side only had 9 players so Orkney lent all its spare players to Caithness in order to make the trip worthwhile. This meant that both sides had 15 players and no substitutions. The kick-off was at 10.30 and it was a chilly day but with the sun shining hopefully.
Caledonia U18 Cup
Inverness, Sat 7th March 2015

Last week they narrowly lost the National Cup final at Murrayfield. With this information in mind the Orkney team new that they had a very difficult task ahead of them.
