Gordonstoun - Sunday 28th September 2013
Final Score: Gordonstoun School U16s 3 - Orkney RFC U16s 64
Orkney Under 16s travelled down to Aberdeen on the Friday night boat and with an early start, they took the bus to Gordonstoun. The boys always enjoy going on this trip.
The boys arrived at Gordonstoun School campus and quickly got changed to get out for an intense warm up. The weather was very close and, as the game went on, the sun came out and it ended up being a very nice day. Gordonstoun won the toss and chose to receive kick off.
The game started off very intensely with Orkney dominating all over the pitch, especially in the breakdown with excellent rucking from Taylor Pirie and Euan Humphreys. The game was in the balance for the first ten minutes with both teams contesting for the upper hand until a Gordonstoun penalty put the home team 3 – 0 up.
