- Wasps take-over day on Sunday – buses leaving the club
- Coach going to Reading on Sunday for Ladies cup game
• Since the last News our first XV have played four, losing three (Sutton Coldfield, Whitchurch & Bournville) and winning one, a superb 32-17 home win over sixth placed Wolverhampton. Great spirit at Bournville achieved a 4 try bonus point. Whilst we remain foot of the table our pride remains in plentiful supply so lets finish the season with a bang! whatever the outcome. In this period our Cavaliers exited the Warwickshire Second XV cup at the semi final stage, bravely going down 24-37 at Nuneaton. Our Ladies have played three, winning two and drawing one and they remain at the top of their league, nine points ahead of their closest rivals. The Ladies have also played two development games in this period winning both (in the space of less than 48hrs!). The web site is now up to date with all reports on all games.
• The big event this week is at Wasps on Sunday (their game v Ospreys) when it is our ‘takeover’ day and we will have some 350+ Kenilworth people (minis & juniors and parents) attending with 100+ being active on the pitch at some time. We are being presented with our partner club plaque before the game. If you wish to attend this then there are a host of buses leaving the club at 1.30 and please do not forget to get your ticket through the link with Wasps on the Home Page of our web site.
• Next weekend the ones are at home to Burton. The Ladies are at home to Longton on the Sunday whilst our Cavaliers are away at Rugby Lions.
• The RFU Raffle tickets are almost ready for collection and the final envelope stuffing will take place on Friday night from 6pm. It would be good if you could lend a hand.
• On the 5th April we have pleasure in welcoming Nigel Owens to the club for a Sporting Dinner. This is now sold out but please note as it coincides with a Ladies Lunch we are looking into the possibility of using the Ladies Marquee for this event as well – watch this space.
• The next Ladies Lunch is set for 8th April.
• 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.
