What's On: 17th - 23rd September
The Bar Rota has been updated for the new season.
Could all club members please check the bar rota page.
We have 6 teams with 2 team leads and if anyone needs to swap weeks, they should contact their team lead or find someone to swap with.
With Caithness RFC gaining promotion to National League Division 3 this season, their visit to Orkney on Saturday will see the first derby between the clubs at National level in almost 14 years, when both sides were in the old National Division 4.
The most recent Caledonia league game at Picky in 2014 resulted in a 21-3 win for Orkney, so the 1st XV will be hoping for more of the same this weekend.
The game kicks-off at 1pm, so please come along and show your support for the boys.
Meanwhile the under-14 & 16 sides are returning to Invergordon again this Saturday, this time to play Stornoway with Ross Sutherland RFC acting as a neutral venue.
The games will kick off around 12 - 12:30pm depending on travel times, so if you’re in the area or passing by feel free to pop along and cheer them on!
To all players, non-players, supporters and spectators of Orkney Rugby Football Club:
Following an incident at the First XV home game against The West of Scotland where abusive and inflammatory language was used against the Referee we have received a disciplinary letter from the SRU.
Please can I remind all that without referees we would not have the game of rugby played in Orkney. Whether or not you agree with their decisions there is no need for the use of unacceptable language directed at the referees, can I remind you that we are a community and family club where women and children are in attendance at our games and that the use of such language is totally unacceptable and a poor example to the youngsters who attend.
The game of rugby is built on mutual respect, that is respect for your officials, respect for the opposition players, respect for your own players, respect for your coaches and finally respect for yourself in the way you should conduct yourself while participating in the game of rugby whether as player or spectator.
I am sorry if this sounds like a lecture but I feel passionately about the game of rugby and anything that brings the game into disrepute is totally unacceptable.
