Murrayfield, Sunday 29 November 2015
Dundee Eagles U18s 12, Orkney/Caithness U18s 21
Last Saturday saw fifteen U18 Orkney players meet at the Northlink Terminal in Stromness at 8am to commence their epic journey to play Dundee Eagles at Murrayfield.
They survived the choppy crossing down the west side of Hoy and made it in one piece to Scrabster. They were met in Thurso by Tracey Kay and five of the Caithness players.
As is the nature of playing rugby in the expanse of the North of Scotland, the player numbers were topped up to the full compliment of 22 by picking up the last two Caithness players in Latheron.
The Caithness Development Officer was collected in Inverness for the onward journey to Edinburgh.
