KENILWORTH RUGBY 250218
The men took an early 10-0 lead over Earlsdon in the Shield final but Earlsdon gradually clawed their way back scoring their winning try very close to the end for a 10-13 win. Check out the unedited pics (thanks to Johnny Marsh) HERE Full report to follow
The Ladies went behind to an early Barnsley try but fought back to take a 7-5 lead. However Barnsley came back and were leading 19-7 only for our Ladies to come storming back to lead 26-19 going into the closing stages. It was not finished and Barnsley scored a very late try but failed with the conversion for a 26-24 win for our girls - truly superb - even following it (and the men's game) on a Virgin train back from Edinburgh! The full report and pics to follow. THeir opponents will be either Bury St Edmonds, Supermarine or (we think), Plymouth.
Elsewhere our Colts went down 3-37 to Old Leamngtonian Colts in their cup quarter final - they had seven regulars missing and had a number of U16 players in the squad. Our Pirates had a pre tour run out and lost heavily to Stratford, 7-76.
