Heavy defeat for rugby team
LOCHABER rugby club travelled to Ellon for their last away game of the season on Saturday but suffered a 78- 0 defeat.
Missing 10 first-team players, it was a very under-strength team.
Things didn’t get any better as Ellon opened the scoring in the first couple of minutes and, from the resulting kick- off , Lochaber went down to 14 men after a red card.
A spokesperson for the club said: ‘That was pretty much it for the rest of the game for Lochaber. Their only lineout jumper sent off and, with a winger and a scrum-half playing in the scrum, things weren’t going well.’
Ellon finished their season top of the bottom half, winning the game 78- 0.
Lochaber will be looking to put that game behind them when they host Shetland on Saturday April 22 at Banavie at 3pm for their last game of the season.
