Under 15's Rugby Team Hit Strong Opposition At Gordonstoun
'Caithness Rugby Club under 15s faced up the their counterparts from Gordonstoun at the Wick High School park this afternoon.  Although the sun shone a strong wind blew down the park.  As did the smell from the slurry spreading in the adjoining field!.  Caithness lost the toss and faced into the wind for the first half.  The Gordonstoun boys showed to be a very mobile and compact unit who played to their obvious strengths. 

They were all comfortable with the ball and raced into a 27 point lead at half time. Caithness changed 7 of their line up for the second half and with the wind at their backs performed well against a far superior team. Caithness ran in two tries in the second period from James Paterson and the 'un-named' number 4 with Colin Miller converting one. Final Score Caithness 12, Gordonstoun 44.
It was pleasing to see a pool of 22 players turn up for this game and for them all to see the standards that they shpould all be striving for as demonstrated by their opponents.
Caithness next game is away to Highland on 5th October'
