On Saturday 5th of March Shetland traveled to Orkney to play in our annual Inter-County match. With a few players short a number of Orkney players stepped forward to play in blue.
Orkney started proceedings with a good kick and push into the Shetland 22. With some precise passing they got a quick try up the right wing through Glen Scott - ably converted by Andrew Mulraine. At the restart Orkney made good ground with a pass from Connor Hancock taken well once again by Glen Scott. Connor unfortunately taking a heavy hit and having to go off for ten minutes with a bloody nose, followed by a scrum to Shetland well taken but ending in an Orkney turn-over.
