After the half time break Orkney had the wind in their faces, they changed the way they were playing the game, this made huge improvements in the game for them. They made good breaks down the wing but found it hard to get to the try line with Ellon’s strong defense and quick to turn over the ball. The physicality of the game started to show in the last 10 minutes of the game with Orkney struggling to keep their defence strong and Ellon quick to take advantage of this and scored the last try’s of the game.
