Pickaquoy - Sunday September 10, 2017
Orkney / Caithness U18s 17, Madras U18s 17
With both Orkney and Caithness Rugby Clubs being unable to raise the numbers for a under 18 side to keep boys playing and continuing to learn the game it was agreed that they would amalgamate at this level. After a friendly encounter against Highland in Thurso last week the side played the first league game of the season against Madras RFC at Pickaquoy on Sunday.
Playing the second half with the advantage of the wind confidence was high in the home support, unfortunately Madras had different ideas. Both teams made chances with Orkney/Caithness going close on a number of occasions. The visitors managed three tries with one being converted leaving the scores tied at 17 points each.
The sides next game is away to Falkirk next Saturday.
