Rugby teams head north to take on Caith­ness

The Oban Times - - Sport -

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..
