Fraserburgh RFC made the trip North to Inverness to play Highland 2nd XV for the second time in as many weeks.

The Broch side were looking to take what they had learned from last Saturdays 66-0 defeat by Highland at James Ramsay Park but were met by a much stronger home side.

Fraserburgh went down 99-0 to the oldest club in Caledonian Division 4 North as the home side made it four matches without conceding any points.

Next up for the Broch rugby boys will be a home game against Garioch 2nd XV.

The Inverurie side’s B team didn’t play last weekend but will no doubt be boosted by the addition of some first team players without a game who are smarting after a heave defeat to the Aberdeenshire Super Twas.

Fraserburgh now sit bottom of Caledonian Division 4 North on points difference as Ellon 2nd XV, who are also have five points have conceded less and scored more points.

Aberdeen Grammar 3rd XV and Strathspey have also dropped out of the league.

Strathspey’s exile means that Fraserburgh and North Scotland Police are the only first team squads remaining in the now seven team league.

After back to back fixtures against Garioch 2nd XV the Broch will play table topping Mackie 2nd XV who won 70-7 against Dean Underwood’s men before a second meeting of the season with Ellon 2nd XV, the team against which Fraserburgh claimed their only victory this season, winning 32-12 in September.
