Williamson double helps rugby team to victory

The Shetland rugby team moved up the league table following a comfortable win over Aberdeen Wanderers during yesterday’s RBS Caledonia League Division 2 North fixture at the Clickimin Pitch.

The Blues scored five tries with Paul Grant, Craig Mann and Jordan Moar all going over while Maurice Williamson scored twice. Jon Pulley converted three.

Aberdeen Wanderers scored an unconverted try shortly after Shetland had scored their first try. But the home team were dominant and ran out 31-5 winners.

The very strong winds made sure it was a passing game which suited Shetland very well. For the first 10 minutes Wanderers did not get a chance to touch the ball as Shetland played some great continuity rugby.

Shetland have 19 points in the league and have moved up to seventh, one point ahead of Wanderers.
