Ed Hannam took the Colts Player of the Season and Rod Jones the Jack Pilbin Clubman of the Year. A full list of award winners is posted on the web site, as are the piccies of the night. The end of seasons stats are also posted these showing that Tom Kendall had a magnificent 208 points and Gaz Renowden an equally impressive 22 tries. These are the highest points/try totals for many a year.
- There is rugby on the TV this weekend with the Amlin Cup final tonight, Stade Francais and Leinster @ 8pm and the Heineken Cup Final tomorrow, Toulon v Clermont @ 5pm. The club will be open for both of these games.
- Kit sizing night Thursday, 23rd 7pm - We have a new kit supplier for the next 3 seasons (O’Neil) and we are doing a kit sizing session at the club next Thursday 23rd at 7pm. If you want a strip that that fits next season get along to the club on Thursday – Richard Gibson.
- Pre Season Training for all will re-start on 18th June.
- The first XV pitch has now been re-seeded at great cost and your co-operation in keeping off it would be appreciated. Work is also being undertaken at the Cow Patch with the major drainage work on the Training Pitch due to commence early in June. Training/touch should take place on pitch 3, at the corner of A46/Rocky Lane until further notice.
- Please remember our Function Room is available for hire for a variety of purposes and full details are on the web site at http://www.kenilworthrugby.co.uk/about-krfc/facilities.html
- Please remember the AMAZON link on our web site and if you use this link then the club gets a small kickback on your purchase. It is located on the Home Page just below the league table on the RHS.
- We are soon to have a meeting of the Web Site Crew so if you have any comments, good or bad, or suggestions, on the web site then please let me know.
- KENILWORTH RFC GOLF DAY - This year’s KRFC Golf Day will be held at Stoneleigh Golf Club on Fri 7th June and will include a round of golf followed by a curry back at the club, courtesy of the Sunam Balti. Cost will be £35 to include the golf, prizes and food. For further information contact Jai Purewal or Dom Carrick.
- BRUNCH WITH A LION - In response to feedback and concerns expressed in relation to the ‘Brunch with a Lion’ event on 29th June during the 2nd Lions test when former Lion Doddie Weir is the guest speaker, it will be now held within the Lounge (function room) area of the club thus making the main bar available to those who simply want to watch the game on the Clubs other ‘big screen’.
- The two other Lions Tests will be shown at the club (11am) and the other games will also be recorded for showing when the club is open. However look out for the club opening for Saturday ‘non test’ games (starting with the Barbarians game in Hong Kong) – full details will be issued nearer the time and posted on the web site.
- Our ex player Mark Crafar now lives in Sydney and he has advised me that he has some Lions tickets available. If you are going to Oz and do not have tickets then contact me and I will put you in touch with Mark.
