Morgan Academy FP v Orkney
Orkney RFC's away fixture against Morgan Academy RFC has been postponed this weekend, due to uncertainty over making transport connections and proximity to the Christmas holidays.
The club had been concerned that Morgan's unwillingness to switch the kick-off time away from 2pm would hamper ability to make the return ferry journey, and weather uncertainty only added to this.
Mark Salter, the SRU's Caledonia Region Competitions Administrator said: "I can confirm that the Caledonia Competitions Committee have agreed to the dispensation request by Orkney and allow this fixture to be rescheduled. This in no way sets a precedence and is classed as a one off dispensation due to the proximity to the Christmas holidays, the seasonal unpredictability of the weather and transport chaos this could cause. This fixture will be rescheduled to 21st March 2015 as this is the first available date for both teams."
