Stornoway Rugby Club produced a battling and spirited performance last Saturday but eventually went down to a heavy home reverse against Caledonia Division Two champions Highland RFC in a league and cup double-header.
Despite the margin of defeat, the islanders can certainly hold their heads high as they dominated possession but were dealt a cruel lesson in clinical finishing, as the Inverness side ran in eight tries, capitalising on some naive mistakes and missed tackles. However, there is no doubt that the scoreline flattered the eventual winners.
As well as being crowned league champions, the victory meant Highland also lifted the Caledonia Bowl and will now play Uddingston RFC in the quarter-final of the national competition.
