Youth rugby round-up
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
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.
