Let the new rugby sea­son be­gin ...

The Oban Times - - Districts -

OBAN Lorne RFC held its in­au­gu­ral Tower 10s com­pe­ti­tion on Satur­day as a cur­tain-raiser for the new sea­son.

It was an ex­cel­lent way to let the coaches see play­ers in com­pet­i­tive ac­tion and in dif­fer­ent po­si­tions.

The com­pe­ti­tion was pre­ceded by a come-and-try ses­sion for women.

Rugby is thriv­ing in this area (there are teams in Mull, Jura and else­where in Ar­gyll), with a very suc­cess­ful youth set-up. In­deed, be­tween them, Oban Lorne and Oban High School have teams for un­der-13, un­der-14, un­der-16 and un­der-18 boys as well as un­der-12, un­der-15 and un­der-18 girls.

Rugby re­ally is a game for all shapes and sizes, all ages and both gen­ders – and any­one who fan­cies try­ing the sport will be made very wel­come at any of the lo­cal clubs.

For the record, Oban Lorne 1st XV’s league cam­paign in BT West Divi­sion One begins on Satur­day Septem­ber 2 with a home fix­ture against Garnock.

Why not make a note in your di­ary to go along and en­joy the game as a spec­ta­tor?
