Caledonia North Under 18 Division
Picky - Saturday 21st September 2013
Final Score: Orkney 50, Caithness 0 (w/o)
Unfortunately Caithness where unable to muster a full team, after consultation with the home team they travelled across the firth with ten players.
It was decided to play a game of three twenty minute periods with Orkney giving Caithness two players to even up the numbers. Ben Sutherland and Andrew Linklater showed great sportsmanship by agreeing to play for the opposition.
It was obvious from the kick off that players from both sides intended to treat this as a serious game of Rugby and get as much quality practice from it as possible.
Quite a few of the Orkney players seemed to take great pleasure in getting hard tackles on Ben and Andrew who where prepared to give as good back.
We ended up with a good game of flowing Rugby, very enjoyable for the few spectators present. The Caithness team and Coach appreciated the effort made as they have not been able to play a league game this season to date.
This Saturday Orkney travel to Invergordon to play Ross Cromarty, due to a change in travel arrangements players meet at Stromness Ferry terminal at 08.15 returning on the 19.00 crossing.
