Un­der-18s

OBAN’S U-18 fix­ture away to Cartha Queens Park was post­poned on Satur­day at the agree­ment of both clubs. This Satur­day the U-18s make the long trip to take on New­ton Ste­wart RFC look­ing to avenge a 47-7 home de­feat from the first game of the sea­son

Un­der-16s

OBAN’S U-16 side put in a strong per­for­mance on Sun­day to de­feat Cam­bus­lang in the North U-16 league. With the score nar­row at 7- 0 at the break, Oban eased ahead in the se­cond half to record a wellde­served 24-10 win against a well- or­gan­ised Cam­bus­lang team.

The Oban side have im­proved vastly since the start of the sea­son mainly be­cause of the high num­ber of fix­tures ful­filled. Be­tween club and school games, the team have played 10 matches since Au­gust.

This Sun­day the U-16s are again in home ac­tion as they wel­come Hill­head Jor­dan­hill to Glen­cruit­ten.

Un­der-14 and Un­der- 13s

The Oban U-14 and U-13 sides hosted Garnock RFC at Glen­cruit­ten on Sun­day. Oban won the game 48-26 with the game be­ing split into thirds to al­low all avail­able play­ers game time. Scrum half Kenni Gray and front row Dougie Mac­Don­ald were the stand- outs for Oban in an en­ter­tain­ing game.

This week both the U-13s and U-14s are away from home.
