In the end the sun shone throughout, the rain stayed off and the pitch held up very well although with the numbers we played across one half of the main pitch in the first half and the other part of the pitch in the second.
It was a close and well contested game with each side scoring 11 tries. The try scorers for White were Craig Rendall with 4 tries, Kyle Robb who got scored another 3, Derek Robb with 2 tries and Derek Nicolson and Steven Bruce who added another one apiece.
The game was well refereed by Ian Rushbrook and with honours even everyone settled down for a bite to eat, prepared by Brian Lanni and Ryan Newlands, after the game while we watched Wales v Georgia followed by Scotland’s spectacular game against the All Blacks.
We hope to have another internal game on Saturday 9 December followed by a game month in the period January to March 2018 – keep an eye on the ORFC website for further details.
Front Row – Gary Nicolson, Tom David, Ally Morgan, Bruce Pinkerton, Garry Coltherd, Craig Rendall and Tom Spence
