Oban Lorne hold Tower 10s tournament this Saturday
OBAN Lorne kick off the 2017/18 season with a pre-season 10s tournament.
The Green Machine are starting their season on Saturday by hosting their own 10-a-side tournament for the first time. The event will see six visiting teams come to Glencruitten on Saturday and the club hopes it will become a regular event in their calendar.
The format for the event is to provide a good physical test for teams and allow coaches to try out players on different positions before the season starts. Games will be 20 minutes long with five man scrums and line outs, regular 15-a- side rules still apply. This should make for fast flowing and entertaining rugby.
A number of local Argyll teams are participating in the inaugural ‘Tower 10s’ including, Isle of Mull, Cowal and Helensburgh. There are also teams from further afield including Lochaber, Queensferry and Inverness Craig Dunain.
Oban Lorne welcome everyone to attend on the day. The club have organised a ladies’ come-and-try session in the morning followed by the main tournament kicking off at 11.30am. There will be burgers and food available throughout the day and then a disco after the tournament which is open to everyone.
Oban Lorne’s pre-season preparations continue the following weekend with a tough home match against National Division 3 side Hillhead Jordanhill. Kick off TBC at Glencruitten.
