KENILWORTH WEEKLY NEWS, 17th Sept
Come down for the opening ceremony and game!
A lift to some RWC games on offer
Final Call for Prediction Comp
• Do I need to remind you that the Rugby World Cup kicks off tomorrow and the club is being duly 'decorated' to mark the occasion. There are lots of things happening on Friday so why not come down and see what we have done and watch the opening ceremony and game on our four HD TV's. All major games will be shown at the club. Don't forget the RWC prediction competition we are running. Details have already been sent out and are on the web site. Closing date is midnight TONIGHT!
• Another very good workmanlike bonus point win for the ones last week away at Silhillians. It was a much changed team from the previous week and all of the new guys who came in did us proud, including Sean Burke making his debut in the front row. Bobby Thompson scored three tries with Hector Smith (his first for the 1st XV) and Josh Hickman. This win has put us second in the league behind Stratford on points difference The piccies and match report are on the web site.
• The Colts had their first game, losing 0-38 to Leicester Forest whilst the Cavaliers defeated Old Leamingtonian 2's 43-5. A number of our 3's joined with Old Coventrians and took on Leamington 2's, coming 'second'.
• This week the first XV are back at home to play Stoke who have won one and lost one of their two games to date. Before the game there is another informal buffet open to everyone at a cost of £10. If you cannot make the game then follow it on Twitter. The programme will be on the web site from Friday night.
• Other games today include the Colts away at Stratford and the 3's away at Shottery.
• Next week (26th) the ones are away at the current league leaders Stratford and it could be a very interesting game if we both win on Saturday.
• Membership for 15/16 is now due. Don't forget to register for membership online – we won't list all the details here again – follow the link on the web site to register and pay. Even if you are a Life Member we ask you to complete the registration form, please!
• On Sunday 27th Sept our Ladies are playing their first game and this will now be at the Cow Patch. On the main pitch will be our second XV cup game v Berkswell & Balsall. The kick off times are still being sorted out so watch this space.
• The club are delighted to announce that we have signed a 12 month agreement to take BT Sport and this includes all footy and rugby played at the weekend.
• Test that grey matter!
