Under 16s win Lochaber Festival
OBAN Lorne Under 16s travelled to Fort William on Saturday for Lochaber RFC's 10-a-side festival. Oban came up against Nairn A, Nairn B, Lochaber and Lochgilphead.
The Oban side were undefeated on the day winning all four matches without conceding a single try!
The festival in Lochaber was welcome for the Oban side whose league game against Stewartry was called off with the opposition unwilling to travel.
The team have a game scheduled with Newton Stewart this Sunday.
