Rugby is flourishing again across Argyll and Bute.

Senior training has started again at Oban, Mull and Islay with regular sessions under way, say officials.

Most of the mini rugby sections are back training too, with Oban and Taynuilt’s Etive Vikings meeting recently for their first competitive fixtures post Covid.

Andrew Johnston, Argyll and Bute’s rugby development officer, hailed the ‘fantastic’ weekend which saw more than 50 children getting involved and ‘some great rugby being played’.

For the first time in a number of years, a senior rugby touch session took place at Lochgilphead recently.

Andrew reported that a dozen hardy former players and a sprinkling of new arrivals turned out for a ‘great’ introductory session.

The sessions will run at Ropework Park, Lochgilphead, from 7pm every Tuesday and are open to all ages and abilities from 16 years up.
