What's On: 7th - 13th May
ORFC claimed the 2018 Orkney Builders Rugby Sevens cup with a 10-7 win over Hearts & Balls after a wonderful day at Picky.
The other trophy winners on the day were:
Pail - West
Bowl - Who let the Hogs Out
Plate - Cameron's Angels
There was a good turnout for last Saturday’s Internal game with a lot of good rugby on show in an evenly contested match which ended as a 34 – 34 draw.
As the First XV squad didn’t have a game last Saturday some of them were out for a game and our Head Coach, Paul Livingstone and Team Manager, Garry Goltherd organised a team apiece. The game was refereed by Ian Rushbrook.
For the Reds Matt Jackson got 3 tries, Bale(Ally Linklater), Ally Morgan and Dean Campbell all scored 1 try apiece, Ally Morgan converted one of the tries and Bruce Pinkerton converted another.
Blacks scorers were Paul Johnston who got 2 tries, with one apiece from Graham Poke, Edgar Thomson, Kyle Robb and Stewart Esslemont. Graham Poke converted one the tries and David Bruce converted the other.
After the game the teams were joined by other Club members to watch the two 6 Nations games that afternoon and you can imagine it was quiet lively in the Clubhouse as the final whistle was blown at Murrayfield.
Thanks to all of the people who came along for a game, those who had helped to organise the teams in the lead up to Saturday and those who helped on the day.
We are definitely going ahead with an Internal Game this coming Saturday 24th of February with a kick off at 1130.
We have had a good response from players of all ages and fitness levels so there will be some players coming on and off for short periods on the one hand but, as this first don't have a game on Saturday, some of those who have been injured and/ or need a run out will be coming along. We are optimistic that a contingent of Caithness players will be also be coming over for a game
We will be playing on the main pitch at Pickaquoy
After the game there will be a bit of grub for the players while we settle down to watch Ireland v Wales at 2.15pm followed by Scotland v England at 4.45pm in the 6 Nations Championship so we are looking forward to a good day all round
Any questions contact Ian Carse on O7415 680 706
Unfortunately we have not been able to get the last two internal games played due to a mixture of bad weather and lack of players
How would you feel about playing an internal game on 24 February in Kirkwall with a kick off at 1130?
As the 6 Nations games are on that weekend we could watch Ireland v Wales at 1415 that day and Scotland v England at 1645 in the ORFC Clubhouse.
If there is enough interest to get two fifteens out that day then I will book a pitch and get some catering organised if folk were wanting to stay on for the 6 Nations games
You will know that this Saturday (17 Feb) the First XV are playing a vital league match away from home v Dalziel and we wish them well. If you or your friends are down near Dalziel our team would welcome your support.
On 3 March the First XV play another important National League 3 game v Perthshire at Pickie and the Ladies also have an important game at home on that day. So you may want to put that date in your diary too as it will be another big day for the Club and we could do with getting a BIG crowd out to support the teams.
Can you please help me to circulate this to all the players that you think might fancy a game on the 24thFeb and put it onto your favourite social media sites.
Then could you get back to me with some idea of how many folk may come out for a game and I will organise dressing rooms, catering and refs accordingly
Thanks in anticipation of your help,
