Oban rugby boys lose to Caith­ness

The Oban Times - - Sport -

A COM­BI­NA­TION of Oban Lorne and Ar­gyll and Bute RFC made the long jour­ney north last Satur­day to take on Cale­do­nia Di­vi­sion 1 side Caith­ness RFC.

With a lack of play­ers due to sum­mer work com­mit­ments and in­juries, Oban and Ar­gyll were com­bined to make enough squad num­bers for the game.

The trav­el­ling team put in a good first-half per­for­mance against their strong ri­vals, with Caith­ness-born, Tommy Suther­land, scor­ing two tries against his home­town club.

Even­tu­ally the home side pulled away to record an im­pres­sive 55-10 win, a huge turn­around from Oban’s pre-sea­son win against the same side at Glen­cruit­ten last sea­son.

This Satur­day, Ar­gyll and Bute travel to take on Aber­feldy in Ken­more while Oban Lorne will have a week­end off pre-sea­son duty.
