Greens return with convincing victory
“IT was good to get back in action,” was Caithness boss Tom McGee’s verdict after the Greens got their first pre-season fixture under their belt.
A convincing display ensured they got off to a winning start as they steamrollered past Caledonia League Two North side Ross Sutherland 66-5.
Tries from Gordy Macleod (2), Callum Hill (2), Cammy Ryder (2), Kevin Budge, Michael MacGregor, Jordan Miller and Marc Anderson wrapped up a comfortable victory.
Other points came via the boot, with Anderson converting 14 points with Kris Hamilton kicking two points of his own.
McGee said: “It’s good to be back. The players have spent the past nine weeks in training and they were very keen to get back out there and get some contact and some collisions.
“I don’t want to be disrespectful to Ross Sutherland but it was a comfortable win and we could have added more points to our tally.
“We played some nice stuff, put in some good combinations and used the ball very well.”
A number of new faces were on show for Caithness with Callum Hill in particular catching the eye.
McGee added: “We’re pleased to have Callum on board. He’s a hooker who is a tenacious and lively player.
“We needed back-up, and indeed some competition, for our regular hooker Hamish Coghill, and Callum did himself no harm with his display.
“We were always going to play him in this fixture because we already know what Hamish can do and we were keen to see how Callum would perform.”
