Another Win On The Road For Orkney Rfc

ORKNEY RFC continued their good away form with a 23-19 away victory over Fife side Glenrothes RFC on Saturday to remain top of Scottish Hydro Caledonia Division 1.

Three first-half tries, courtesy of Tom Croy (pictured), captain John Dearness, and James Linklater, helped Orkney to a 20-0 half-time lead.
However, a spirited fightback from Glenrothes in the second half saw them claw it back to 19-23, as Orkney could only add a penalty to their points tally.

The travellers held out though, and solid defending in the final 20 minutes gave them their second away victory on consecutive Saturdays, following their 47-7 demolition of Grangemouth last week.

Orkney host Crieff & Strathearn at Pickaquoy next Saturday.
