Orkney beat Livingston 63-12 at Pickaquoy this afternoon with ten tries, five conversions and a penalty.
Orkney's try scorers were Philip Ross, Alex Kansour, Dean Campbell, Don Tualasea (2), William Thomson (3), Robbie Firth, and Andrew Cuddihy. Graham Poke, in as captain for the injured Alan Brown, slotted five conversions and a penalty.
Livingston's points came through tries from Connor Clarke and Kerr Anderson, who converted his own score.
There was a long stoppage towards the end of the first half as Orkney player Marcus Guthrie sustained a broken leg. He was taken to Balfour Hospital by ambulance. All at Orkney RFC wish him a speedy recovery.
Orkney Rugby Football Club were delighted to support MND Scotland with a cheque for £2310, if possible it would be nice if they could buy some piece of equipment to help people with Motor Neurone Disease locally.
The money was raised as part of the raffle at our 50th Dinner Dance at Picky, a huge thanks to everyone who contributed.
I would also like to thank Barbara Hutchison who presented the cheque on our behalf and to Moira Flett Orkney's representative for MND Scotland.

Ross Sutherland RFC U16s 34, Orkney RFC U16s 29
Last Saturday the Orkney under 16 Rugby team travelled to Invergordon to play Ross Sutherland in a Caledonian League game, with both teams being unbeaten so far this season it was expected to be a close encounter.
In the first attack on the Orkney line two missed tackles allowed the home team to open the scoring, the conversion was missed. Both teams played some very constructive and aggressive Rugby matching each other in periods of open play.

Pickaquoy Infield - Saturday, 1 October 2016
ORKNEY RFC 23, LASSWADE RFC 20
Orkney RFC came through as tough a home match as they’ve won in a while with a 23-20 victory over first-time visitors Lasswade at Pickaquoy on Saturday afternoon.
Barring the injury toll – a dislocated shoulder for Aly Linklater, a knee injury that saw captain Alan Brown heading for the Balfour Hospital, and various other bumps and scrapes – this was a good win for the home side, considering they had been on the back foot for long spells.
The club would like to invite you all to an evening to say thank you and goodbye to our Rugby Development Officer Tom Hughes who is leaving Orkney for a new opportunity on Friday and we along with all playing sections, coaches, parents and members of the club wish to say a huge thank you and farewell from Orkney RFC so please come along to the clubrooms at 6.30pm on Wednesday and help us celebrate Tom’s time in Orkney and give him a warm Orcadian goodbye.
