Second Team cup news
A brunch on the 15th March

• We went to Burton with a few regulars missing but the guys who turned out (including two new 'caps' Tim Naylor and Stewart McLure) put up a superb performance holding second placed Burton to 8 all only to lose two quick late tries and a further one at the death to eventually lose 8-23. Ralph's report is on the web site, as are some pics of the game. The Second XV cup game on the Sunday was postponed and will now be played on 23rd Feb. Neither the Colts, nor the thirds played.
• This weekend the ones, weather willing, are at home to third placed Hereford and a pitch inspection will take place at 9am on Saturday to see if the game can go ahead. Hereford won the earlier game 40-17 and looked a class act, particularly in the backs. We have a few of the guys who were missing last week back but no confirmed team yet. If you cannot make the game then follow it on twitter @kenilworthrugby. The programme for the game, including Dickie's Gardening Tips and Peacock's Corner will be on the web site as from early Friday.
• The Colts do not have a game and the Cavaliers are away at Silhillians. The 3's game against Manor Park has already been called off due to the state of the Rocky Lane pitches.
• Junior fixtures for 16th Feb – again weather willing:
U13's at home to Shipston – main pitch if playable
U14's, 15's & 16's all training
The main Club will be open for hot drinks from 10.30am, bar from 11am and there will be post match food there.
• Next week (22nd) the ones are at home again in our re-arranged game with Berkswell & Balsall, third time lucky we hope. On Sunday 23rd there is the Second XV Cup semi final at Sutton Coldfield. The winners will take on Pinley in the final as they defeated Broadstreet in the other semi final.
• The Colts have been drawn at home to Silhillians in the first round of the Warwickshire Colts Cup, 8th March at 3pm.
• The Six Nations tickets at Twickenham will be available for collection from tonight (14th Feb) from the club.
