• A truly superb bonus point win for the boys last week at Crewe & Nantwich, 39-24, for our fourth win of the season. We have six games left to achieve that miracle and four of them are at home. It was a superb effort from everyone and to cap it all Gaz Renowden scored his 100th try for the club (in 210 games). Sophie’s report is on the web site, as are the piccies. Our Cavaliers played a merit league game at home to Silhillians and lost 22-24. On Sunday the Ladies Development squad took on a Cov Uni side and won 39-15 with Trish McMahon scoring five tries.
• There are no senior men’s games this weekend and the big event is the Ladies. On Sunday they are away at Coventry Welsh and a win would see them crowned champions. Kick off is 11.30. The Ladies will also win the league if Aston Old Eds fail to defeat Longton.
• Next weekend (4th March) our ones are at home to Dudley Kingswinford, in the return of the 3pm kick offs. The Cavaliers are also at home to Earlsdon in a merit league game. Prior to the Dudley K game we are holding an informal hot buffet which is open to all at a cost of £5 per head. Please contact Peter Blakeman if you wish to reserve a space and Peter is hopeful that each section of the club will be represented at the lunch. It will kick off at 12.30 with drinks in the bar followed by the buffet from 1pm. The game kicks off at 3pm.
• On the 5th April we have pleasure in welcoming Nigel Owens to the club for a Sporting Dinner. Please contact Bruce Doe if you wish to attend this event.
• The next Ladies Lunch is set for 8th April.
• The next Former Players Lunch is on 25th March before our game with Worcester Wanderers.
• Please be aware that the club now has the full BT Sport package available at the club and this now includes Championship rugby and Champions League footy, in addition to Sky Sports.
