Oban Lorne hold Tower 10s tour­na­ment this Satur­day

The Oban Times - - Times Sport -

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.
