The club, who were supported by players from Inverness Craig Dunain were involved in an extremely physical battle with Ross Sutherland matching Garioch in tackles.

Emily Sutherland made history scoring the first of many tries for Ross Sutherland with an outstanding breakaway try cutting through Garioch’s defence from the half way line.

The game kept the crowd guessing with tries coming thick and fast from both sides resulting in an outstanding show of exciting and fun filled rugby from both sides.

The game was played at the Naval Grounds in Invergordon.

Ross Sutherland’s captain Natalie Reid said: “I am extremely proud of all the ladies that have trained and made the game possible.

"We have come so far in a very short period of time, and it shows the commitment and passion that the ladies have for both rugby, and each other as a team.

"As always, they gave 100 per cent on the day and we are all looking forward to more game time and welcoming an away fixture in Garioch.

"It was amazing to have so many supporters watching the match and hearing the cheers motivated us to give it our all.

"I would like to thank all the coaches and volunteers who made the day possible, including serving food and drink post match while we watched Ross Sutherland First XV Stags win their match against Mackie Rugby Club."

Ross Sutherland Ladies are looking for new players. The senior ladies currently train on Monday evenings at 7pm whilst secondary school aged girls train on Wednesday evenings at 6.30pm.
