Im­pres­sive start to the sea­son for Oban Lorne youth teams

The Oban Times - - SPORT -

Oban Lorne’s U16 and U18 sides kicked off their West Re­gional League Cam­paigns last week­end as they both wel­comed Strathaven RFC to Glen­cruit­ten.

The U18s fielded a strong squad on Satur­day aided by play­ers from Lochaber RFC to take an im­pres­sive 26-0 win. Un­for­tu­nately the game was aban­doned 15 min­utes early due to an in­jury to a Strathaven player who was taken to A&E. Every­one at Oban Lorne wishes the player a speedy re­cov­ery.

On Sun­day the U16s also wel­comed Strathaven for their league opener. Oban ran out 45-31 win­ners an a very en­ter­tain­ing and open game of rugby.

Im­pres­sive for Oban were backs Blair Mac­Far­lane and El­lis Hunter along with for­wards Kenni Gray and Oran Charl­ton. The team also boasted three play­ers from Isle of Mull RFC who all started in the fix­ture.

This week­end both teams make the long trip south to Cas­tle Dou­glas as they take on Ste­wartry RFC. This is the first of a few long away trips with Ar­drossan and New­ton Ste­wart RFC also tak­ing part in the West League.
