News of Six Nations Tickets
• Our boys had a superb 33-22 bonus point win over Worcester Wanderers last week and we were good. We had two newcomers in the squad, back rowers Will Blundell and Kalum Goodfellow and both performed well. Josh Hickman gathered 18 points and Mikkel had another superb game. Sophie’s report and the piccies are on our web site. The win has moved us up to 7th, only eight points off the top with a game in hand.
• Other results last week were a win for the Colts at Berkswell & Balsall, 19-7 but a defeat for the 3’s at Hinckley 3’s, 24-26. The Ladies game was called off due to wet pitches at Amber Valley. Sophie was a tadge upset as she was down to make her debut!
• This week we are at home to Silhillians in the first of the return fixtures. Silhillians have had 12 defeats on the trot but we must be very careful as games between us have always been very close and we must not take the win for granted. Returning to our squad are Ross Lowthian and Pat Jenkinson (PJ). Sophie will be at the game reporting and tweeting and the programme, with the team, will be up on our web site later today. The programme is an eight page colour edition and we thank Emmerson Press for doing this.
• Prior to the game there is our annual Christmas Lunch with our Blind Auction and if you are coming to the lunch please come early, noon, for a prompt start. Roger Roberts has been very busy and has obtained twenty five superb prizes for the Auction. We thank them all:

• Other games this weekend include the Colts at home to Old Coventrians Colts and the Cavaliers away at Berkswell & Balsall. There is no Ladies game. After the games today the players have organised a get together, including a carry out curry, and if you fancy joining in then have a word with Bobby Thompson and go out and buy a silly Christmas Jumper.
• There are no games next week (26th) but the ones have been told they must play their postponed Hereford fixture on the 2nd Jan.
• The Ladies have been drawn at home, again, in their Cup competition and they will play Bletchley on the 10th Jan.
• At the club over the weekend there is lots of TV rugby with Champions Cup Rugby being shown.
• Over Christmas the club will be open on Boxing Day (26th) and again on Monday 28th when there is a Barbarians game (v Warwick School OB’s) and a Minis Disco – full info on the disco is on the web site together with the Festive Season opening times.
• There is an additional Summer Test between England and Wales at Twickenham and there is a superb offer of tickets for juniors at £20. Full details on this are on the web site.
• We have pulled off a bit of a coup by securing John Inverdale to come and speak at a Sporting Dinner and the date planned is 3rd March. Tickets will be £30 a head and will be available for booking early in the New Year.
