Gig Weekend Rugby Match Won By Visitors

The traditional rugby match between the Isles of Scilly and the visiting World Pilot Gig Championships team took place on the Garrison yesterday morning, although turnout was low.

The match was held with only 13 players on each side and Rob Hughes says most of the Isles of Scilly team was made up of youngsters.

While the home side put up a strong showing, the final score was 21-31 to the visitors.
