Ross Sutherland’s season comes to a close tomorrow when they host champions-elect Highland 2nd XV.

The Inverness outfit only need a single point to win the Caledonia North Two title, and will be confident of getting it against their rivals.

“A couple of last minute calls went the wrong way, but really we should have won that fixture.

“I think it will be a bit of redemption from that.”
