Rugby team defeats third-placed Moray
The Shetland rugby team put in a strong performance to come back from a two-try deficit to beat Moray on Saturday.
BT Caledonia League Division 2 North
Shetland 15, Moray 10
The BT Caledonia Division 2 North match at Clickimin saw the visitors go 10-0 up but the home side stormed back, defeating a team who are seven places higher in the league.
Two tries from Stewart Mouat and one by Daniel Gray gave Shetland the well-deserved victory, extremely welcome during what has been a very difficult season.
The result keeps Shetland at the foot of the league, but means they are no longer on negative points. A couple more victories and they could continue their battle to avoid relagation to division three.
One of the stand-out players was Edward “Rambo” Russell who was constantly in the faces of his Moray opponents, charging directly at them with the ball at every opportunity.
Shetland’s next match is this coming Saturday, again at home, against seventh-placed Lochaber.
