Pickaquoy Infield - Saturday, September 26
ORKNEY RFC v HIGHLAND RFC
Orkney RFC’s home league fixture against Highland RFC on Saturday, which was down for a 1pm kick-off at Pickaquoy, has been postponed due to a bereavement within the Inverness club.
Highland RFC stalwart Colin High, who passed away last Friday afternoon, was a former Highland and North & Midlands player, well known in rugby circles throughout the country. He was a past captain and was 1st XV coach up till a couple of years ago. His son Gareth is Highland’s current vice-captain.
Orkney RFC secretary Robert Leslie said: “Colin’s funeral is on Friday afternoon, so when Highland asked for Saturday’s match to be postponed we very quickly agreed due to the circumstances. Our fixtures secretary Graham Poke has passed on our condolences to Colin’s family and to the club.”
The match will now be rescheduled in agreement with the SRU.
