On Sunday the 26th of April over 75 young players travelled over the Firth to the Caithness Mini- Rugby Festival. We had 4 teams, Orkney 1 to 4, in the P6/7 Section and 4 teams, Orkney A to D, in the P4/5 Section.
Inga McCartney is looking for any parents of kids from Kirkwall, St Andrew's or Dounby who are playing in the Mini or Rookie tournaments who can bring Sandwiches and/or homebakes to contribute to the refreshments in the tent on Saturday. Also any that can spare 20mins to help serve the food.
She also needs 10-12 pots of soup.
Anyone able to help can you please contact Inga on 875989 or 07712 224002

Caledonia U18 Plate Final
St Andrews, Sunday 26 April 2015
Aberdeen Grammar U18s 22, Orkney U18s 19
Orkney Rugby Clubs under 18 squad travelled down to Madras RFC in St Andrews with a strong squad of 19 boys. Unfortunately a hand full of players were carrying injuries or knocks from previous games. This combined with the long journey down was going to make the game difficult.
The game was played as an early kick off at 11 o’clock to allow the team to get back to Aberdeen for the evening boat. It was played at a fast pace from the start as the weather made it perfect for running Rugby.
Orkney RFC are taking part in the Langholm & Peebles Sevens on Saturday 25 & Sunday 26 April.
