Oban Lorne lose close game to Garnock

Oban Lorne 19

Garnock 25

BT West Division One

OBAN Lorne kicked off the 2017/18 league season at Glencruitten on Saturday with the visit of familiar rivals Garnock RFC.

The Green Machine were full of confidence gong into the new season after winning their inaugural Tower 10s competition and producing a good show against National Division 1 opposition Hillhead Jordanhill RFC in pre season.

Head Coach Corrie Louw had a strong team to choose from and welcomed Tommy Sutherland, Jack Baxter and Rufus Stones back into the starting line-up. Notably there was a place on the bench for returning prop Liam Burns along with back line players Dave McCabe and Calum MacLachlan who were being rested due to some niggling injuries. Unfortunately Oban Lorne were dealt a blow in the build up of the game with Bulgarian back-rower Vladi Mihov returning to his homeland due to family concerns. Oban Lorne would like to wish Vladi well and thank him for his contribution over the past season.
