Heavy de­feat for rugby team

The Oban Times - - Sport -

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.
