The signs are good for an excellent day of Rugby at Bayhead tomorrow (Saturday September 21st) with an excellent weather forecast and both women’s and men’s teams in action and in excellent form.
Stornoway Ladies will be kicking off at 2.15pm against Inverness Craig Dunain Ladies, the team who helped their development with a pre-season friendly two weeks ago.
The result on that occasion went Craig Dunain’s way, but Stornoway Ladies are riding high after their first league result against Huntly Ladies on August 31st, when they left the pitch with a glorious 36-10 win under their belt.
The men’s team from Huntly are the worthy opposition for Stornoway RFC senior team, kicking off at 4pm at Bayhead. The team are still feeling fine after a titanic victory over Banff RFC 34-31 two weeks ago put them one step closer to the Caledonia regional bowl (north).
Tomorrow’s match opens the league season in the Tennent’s Caledonia north region league division 3, after last week’s match against Lossiemouth was postponed due to the appalling weather.
