The game soon came under Orkney’s control with the score at half time being 27-0 Orkney.
10 minutes into the second half Orkney scored 3 tries and 1 conversion.
Time went by and Orkney put the game to bed in the second half & it was not until the end when Taexali finally got the try they pushed for.
The game ended 70-5 Orkney and the boys would like to thank Aberdeen Taexali for being great hosts and thank you to the players for the playing for the other team and massive thanks to Alan Pirie and Pete Eggeling for playing the whole game for Taexali.
Orkney RFC would like to thank Orkney Pride for sponsoring the team’s travel this weekend
