News of Second XV semi final cup draw
• The first XV suffered heartbreak last week going down 22-25 to a big powerful Newport side who are top of the league. We lost in the 12th minute of injury time when we conceded a try after about 20 minutes of gallant defence – you could have heard a pin drop! However the boys left the field to a big standing ovation and the big crowd certainly let them know they had appreciated the effort put in by everyone – the report is on the web site. More bad news on the injury front when hooker Mark Ramsden, making his first XV debut, and an impressive one at that, broke his leg midway through the second half. Our Ladies retained top spot in their league with a 29-0 win at Winnington Park whilst our Second XV (Cavaliers) reached the semi final of the Second XV Cup with a big 45-12 win over Leamington. Making his return for Kenilworth was ex skipper Johnny Cresswell who came on in the second half and promptly helped himself to two tries. Other try scorers were Adam Turner, Liam Leeson, Adam Clifford, Harvey Joy and Cory Joy – a superb mix of old and new!
• This weekend the first XV are away at Stratford who are sitting in 5th spot in the league with six wins and seven losses. It would be great if the boys could run out to a big vocal crowd to hopefully build on the new belief we built up last week. If you cannot make it then follow the game on Twitter @kenilworthrugby.
• The Cavaliers are at home to Stratford on Saturday. On Sunday the Ladies Development squad are at home and take on Silhillians, 2pm.
• The Cavaliers reward for their win last weekend is a trip to Nuneaton. The other semi is between Berkswell & Balsall & Stratford. The ties will take place on 22nd Jan.
