M&J Presentation Day detail
• Our last league game of the season last week was a bit of a non event for us, losing 15-27 at Silhillians, that win keeping Silhillians up and sending Berkswell & Balsall, Earlsdon and Barkers Butts down. We were never really in the game conceding two early tries but what might have been if that late try had been awarded! The report and piccies are on the web site. Newport are champions of our league by 30+ points and Hereford have taken the play spot.
• In the only other game last week our Cavaliers defeated Silhillians 2's 41-22 and it was good to see such a youthful team out on the pitch, bar one or two!
• This weekend it is the KRFC M&J Festival and you could do worse than wander down to the Cow Patch and see what is happening. The Juniors are on Saturday and the Minis on Sunday. There is a bar, a cafe and good rugby to be watched.
• Also on Saturday on the main pitch is our 90th Anniversary Match between a KRFC President's XV and a Wooden Spoon XV. This kicks off at 3pm. There is a BBQ and entertainment during and after this game.
• We will once again be running a coach to a Wasps game – Wasps v Leicester, 9th May - coach £5 per head and there are some spaces available on the coach. Our ticket allocation has now gone but it is understood that tickets can be had direct from Wasps. Please note that the KRFC bar will not be open before the game but will afterwards.
• You will note that the WiFi at the club is now much improved and there are codes posted around the club.
• The Club Dinner has been set for 8th May and full details are now on the web site.
• KRFC M&J Presentation day Sunday 10th May
Presentation day this year will be held on Sunday 10th at the club commencing at 10.30 with the U6s – each age group have a 15 minute slot - please do not over run this - and the presentations will be followed by a review of the season and a look forward to the new season – we look forward to seeing you all there
12.00 Review of the season
• The AGM for the whole club this season will be on Wednesday 24th June at 8pm.
• Please note that the first XV pitch will be having a lot of work done to it from the 27th April and will be out of action for at least 3 months. Wednesday night touch will therefore move to the Rocky Lane site.
