In anticipation of our 50th season, Orkney RFC, building on recent successes and after sustained focus on Youth Rugby, are now seeking to appoint a new Club Coach. The successful applicant will be responsible for leading the Senior Club coaching, with particular emphasis on maximising player potential and developing the ORFC First XV further. Currently Orkney RFC hold a position in BT National League 3, having gained promotion from Caledonia Regional Leagues in season 2014-15 despite having no recognised coach but with a stated ambition to go further in future seasons.
Saturday 30th April 2016.
The ORFC mini sections finished the season with the usual tournament at the Pickaquoy playing fields on the morning of the club Sevens, a good opportunity for them to display their skills to the crowd of parents, grand-parents and friends on a lovely, sunny Spring morning. Once again St Andrews were dominant in both age groups as they have been all season.
49th Annual Orkney 7s Tournament, Pickaquoy, Saturday 3rd May 2016
Peebles didn’t drop a point all day on the way to beating hosts Orkney in the final and lifting the Orkney Builders Orkney Sevens title on a fine Saturday afternoon at Pickaquoy.
With entries slightly down on normal, 11 teams fought it out for the three titles up for grabs on the day – the Pail, the Plate, and the Sevens themselves.
Once the three group stages had been sorted, Peebles and Orkney overcame the Ale Stars and Grangemouth respectively in the quarter finals, while Exiles saw off Sandwick YFC and the Almost All Blacks beat the Auld Bulls.
The semi finals saw Peebles beat the Exiles, while Orkney overhauled the Almost All Blacks.
All this was taking place in front of a growing touchline crowd, who were enjoying the matches as well as the food, refreshments and musical entertainment being laid on between the pitches.
