Old Coventrians Colts 43 Kenilworth Colts 0
Saturday 20 January 2018
2:15pm kick off
The Colts travelled to Coventry for what was predicted to be a tough game of rugby against a strong squad. The ground was white, but the snow had stopped falling just before kick-off, as Kenilworth prepared to take on OCs at Tile Hill Lane.
OCs kicked off and showed great urgency in the opening five minutes. They pressed on from their second corner lineout and secured an unconverted try. Just five minutes later - amidst some confusion - a second OCs try was awarded. Their third (converted) followed some five minutes after that, and Kenilworth found themselves 17 - 0 down.
OCs physicality shone through as they closed the first half with a fourth, converted try (24 - 0).
Kenilworth kicked off for the second half and they were giving their all. Better phases of play were defended well by OCs and punctuated with handling errors in the cold, wet conditions. OC's game was still strong and their second-half efforts resulted in three more tries (two converted), leaving the final tally at 43 - 0.
A further display of strong commitment from Kenilworth today against arguably the league's strongest that sadly was not recorded in any points scored.
