Tennent's National League Division 3
Hughenden, Glasgow - Saturday 23rd March 2019
Hillhead Jordanhill RFC 31, Orkney RFC 12
Orkney were well up for the challenge and chose to play into the wind in the first half. A series of unforced errors saw them trail by twelve points. After a very nervous start Orkney started to settle down. Going back to basics and carrying the ball hard in the forwards. The tactics worked and Orkney were awarded a penalty inside the Hillhead half.
Due to strong winds and cold windchill and the fact that Picky isn’t available, the coaches have sadly CANCELLED the ROOKIE TRAINING on Saturday 23rd March.
Sunday 17th March 2019 saw 39 kids from East, Kirkwall and West mini rugby sections play in the Caithness Mini Rugby Tournament. Two Primary 7 and two Primary 5 teams were created with a mixture of players from each section. The travelling coaches were impressed with the calibre of the Orkney players and the way that they all mucked in together in the different teams.
Teams from Orkney, Nairn, Highland, Moray, Kinloss, Ross Sutherland and Caithness all competed at both age groups.
In the older age group the Orkney Greens ran out tournament winners having won all 6 games and conceded no tries. The Orkney Stripes won 3 games, drew 1 and lost 2.
And on Sunday, the Mini rugby sections travel to Thurso to take part in the Caithness Mini Rugby tournament which starts at 11am
The ladies arrived back home after a 0-55 loss against Stirling County. Orkney were faced with the challenge of a skilled premiership team, but held their own and played with fire until the last minute.
The Dragons are looking forward to the next round against Aberdeenshire Quines on the 23rd March.
