Unfortunately due to the boat being cancelled the 1st XV game against St Boswells RFC has been called off.
What's On: 12th - 18th March
Orkney didn’t get off the bus today for 30 minutes. Dalziel put out a strong side that matched Orkney in the tight and in the line out turnovers in crucial areas of the pitch ie the oppositions 22!
Orkney once they got off the bus started to put their phases together but Dalziel’s defence was resolute especially at the end of the 1st half after a sustained attack from Orkney which was held up on the line as the full time whistle was blown which stopped Orkney’s momentum unfortunately.
The start of the 2nd half was when the game changed direction, Dalziel scored near enough from the kick off and heads dropped.
Graham Poke & Scott Rendall with help from Danny Bain rallied the team and Orkney were firing on 3 cylinders which almost broke the Dalziel back, unfortunately for Orkney there were to many handling errors in crucial areas of the pitch which helped Dalziel gain the momentum!
I cannot say that the Orkney side did not give 110% as that’s what they did, unfortunately it was basic skills that let us down, there are 19 disappointed players travelling home tonight and they know that they threw an opportunity out of the window which we should have taken. All I ask is the support of the Orkney RFC family to support this young squad who are trying their hardest to keep Orkney RFC in National 3 rugby.
Final score Dalziel 36 Orkney 19

BT National League Division 3
Canal Park, Inverness - Saturday 3rd February 2018
HIGHLAND RFC 22, ORKNEY RFC 7
Orkney kicked off on a 4G pitch. Orkney pressure to start with, good clearing kick from the stand off. Highland kick to touch. Orkney took a fantastic quick line out, Scott Rendall stopped just short of the line. Highland then had a good breakthrough the middle again stopped short and a good clearance kick from James Linklater relieved the pressure.
Orkney then had a good break through the middle with a chip kick from James Linklater and a great catch but was then knocked on, Highland put the ball into the air followed by a take and drive by their number 8 to score however the ref missed the players crossing and distracting play. 13 scored the conversion 7-0.
1st XV UPDATE: KO Time Change to 12:30.
Highland RFC v Orkney will now KO at 12:30 to allow the boys to catch ferry home due to changed sailing timetable.
