Pickaquoy - Saturday 27th January 2018
ORKNEY RFC 7, GLASGOW ACCIES RFC 17
Tremendous effort by Orkney RFC, 5 minutes to go in a hard fought forward battle and leading 7-5 against the 2nd place Glasgow Accies was above and beyond by the 19 who took to the field.
It was not the most open or flowing game of rugby but both sides made an enjoyable match to watch, from minute one Accies knew they were in a fight of their lives to get past a resolute Orkney defence and when Orkney had the ball in their hands it was hard to get it off them.
Orkney need to take all the positives out of this match and carry it over to the Highland match next week down in Inverness. If anyone wishes to travel with the 1XV next week please talk to Brian Lanni and if there is space please travel with the boys.
The final score truly does not reflect the game that was played, so well done to Orkney RFC for their efforts in this match, please keep believing in yourselves as things are going to change for the better.
