Orkney RFC still searching for first victory after Caithness defeat
Orkney RFC’s search for a first win of the season continues after Caithness won the 91st clash between the sides, emerging 9-16 winners.
The losing bonus point picked up by Orkney will be little consolation after a third defeat of the season at the hands of their rivals.
The visitors went in at the break 0-11 up and in control following an unconverted try and two penalties.
A hat-trick of penalties from James Linklater cut the deficit to two, however a try 20 minutes from the end saw newly promoted Caithness pick up their first victory of the season.
Orkney’s next match is away to Ardrossan Academicals next Saturday.
