Old Leamingtonians Colts vs Kenilworth Colts
Saturday 25 November 2017
2:15pm kick off
Kenilworth Colts suffer a bruising defeat at OL’s Bericote Road pitch. Final score 43 – 5.
A biting, northerly wind swept across the main pitch as OL’s kicked off, with the low winter sun behind them.
Kenilworth faced an energised, well organised OL’s XV that put 24 points on the board within the first 20 minutes, with no Kenilworth reply.
Kenilworth managed to abate their score rate but the half time score line reflected the two sides’ performance, at 31 – 0.
Despite a more physical start to the second half from Kenilworth, the score after ten minutes was 43 – 0. To their credit Kenilworth kept pushing for an opening and after 15 minutes that was rewarded with their only try of the game, scored by Jack Rawlings. With a more organised defensive effort, OL’s scoring was halted but the final score of the game was 43 – 5.
A tough game against the league’s second-placed team, which will provide an important learning opportunity for the Colts.
