ORKNEY AGGREGATES SEVENS TOURNAMENT
Pickaquoy Playing Fields, Sat 4th May
Orkney RFC triumphed over Caithness in an entertaining if slightly one-sided 2013 Orkney Aggregates Sevens Final at Pickaquoy on Saturday, giving them their fourth win in the past five years and their 19th victory in their own tournament.
The 31-0 win – five tries and three conversions - came at the end of a day that had started wet and got wetter, only for the skies to clear in the hours after the action had moved from the pitches to the clubhouse. It had thankfully dried up in time for the latter stages of the tournament and sizeable crowd had drifted away from the beer and burger stands at the head of the pitches as the quarter finals and semi-finals were played out.
