Teams Had A great Day At The Mini Rugby In Wick
Over 50 boys in rugby teams from Orkney were just a few of
the teams from all over the Highlands and Islands playing in the
Mini Rugby competitions at Wick High School today. Orkney
teams did very well. We caught up with them after they bought
nearly all the ice cream in the Harbour Cafe. With seriously
good weather the boys had lunch at the school after the rugby and
then took the afternoon to look round the town before getting the
ferry from Gills.
