Rugby teams head north to take on Caithness
OBAN Lorne were without a fixture on Saturday as Caledonia Division 1 side Highland RFC called off the scheduled pre-season fixture due to a lack of playing numbers.
It was disappointing for the Green Machine to miss out on some vital game time prior to the season’s kick- off on September 5 at home to Isle of Arran in the BT West Regional Shield.
Oban Lorne and Argyll and Bute RFC who are also based in Oban are both looking forward to a positive season ahead with an upturn in playing numbers since pre-season preparations began last month.
This week, both teams have an away trip to Thurso to take on Caithness RFC in what will be a tough contest..
