This was also the final home game as captain for Donna Wilson, and she signed off in style by getting on the scoresheet with a great individual run for a try in the second half.
Kirkcaldy had travelled north with just 15 players, but were loaned experienced Dragon Jo Inkster as a replacement.
The visitors kicked off under blue skies and in still conditions, perfect for some open, running rugby.

Please pass the word, thanks!
Orkney travelled south with several changes to the squad due to unavailability, injury, and work commitments.
However, this gave a number of second team players the opportunity to make the step up and experience national league rugby.
