Lerwick - Saturday 2nd November 2019
Shetland Ladies 48, Orkney Dragons 12
On Saturday 2nd November the Orkney Dragons travelled up to Shetland in the second half of the Tennent's Women’s North League. Due to the nature of Loganair's winter flight timetable the journey involved flying via Aberdeen plus an overnight stay in Shetland.
With these added logistical pressures the Dragons found themselves travelling with just 2 replacements- a rather daunting prospect against a team like Shetland. However in true Orkney RFC style they arrived in good spirits ready to take on whatever the Shetland Ponies had to throw at them. Unlike Orkney that day Shetland was dry and bright but with a strong easterly wind blowing up the park.
