On the road again! After an overnight boat journey and a 4-hour bus jaunt the lads were down in Jedburgh and were met with a still but bitterly cold day. Thankfully the frost had lifted off the pitch.
Back at home the U16s host Shetland at noon while on Sunday the U14s play Huntly at KGS at 11am & the U18s take on Moray/Huntly at noon on the centre pitch at Picky
What's On 4-10 December
Monday, 4th December
Stronsay take the honours at home while the U16s winning streak unfortunately comes to an end but the boys can be proud of their Plate run!
The U16s squad travel (weather permitting!) to Jedburgh on Saturday to play Jed Thistle U16s in the semi final of the National Youth plate, while the Internal Rugby heads to Stronsay this weekend as the islanders take on Orkney Babas at 11:30am.
Anyone wanting to go along to watch/play please get in touch with Erland Drever.
Big Thanks to match sponsors, Stronsay Engineering for supporting the trip!
Brilliant win for the firsts in poor conditions in a great game against 3rd placed Howe of Fife to maintain the 100% win record! Next up for them is a top of the table clash against Preston Lodge on 2 December in Prestonpans.
Unfortunately the Dragons just lost out to Craig Dunain Ladies in Inverness.
Great win for the U16s at Picky on Sunday in the plate quarter final. They now head to Jedburgh to play Jed-Thistle in the semifinal on Saturday 25 November.

Orkney quickly took the game to Fraserburgh with some strong carries from the forward pods, resulting in Ally Amer finding a gap in the Fraserburgh defence scoring Orkney’s first try which was comfortably converted by Ryan Mooney.
