BT National League Cup Round 1
Dumfries - Saturday, 26 August 2017
DUMFRIES SAINTS RFC 78, ORKNEY RFC 12
Orkney started off on the front foot, Dumfries were taken by surprise of their intensity.
Orkney showed great promise in their short game around the breakdown. After 10 mins the 1st scrum to Orkney given, Dumfries showed their strength in the tight and pushed Orkney off the ball.
Dumfries broke the line after 15 minutes but not due their play but Orkneys mistake.
The game was a good spectacle to watch and the crowd enjoyed the entertainment. Dumfries showed enterprise wide as this was the weakness in the Orkney game in patches.
Orkney gave great accountability to of themselves through determination not to give up and keeping pressure on Dumfries. The score flattered Dumfries but by no means does it undermine what the 16 boys done on the pitch for a second week without a full squad.
