Former Players Lunch on 5th March
• Another very poor result last week (to go with the defeat at Walsall the previous week) when we let a 13-5 h/t lead slip to lose 13-15 to Whitchurch. We have now dropped down to 8th in the league, well off the pace and with difficult games to come. There was more bad news with defeats for the Colts (20-21 to Banbury), Cavaliers (20-26 to Rugby St Andrews) and Ladies (5-7 to Old Newtonians).
• The only game on this Saturday are the 3’s who are at home to Shottery on the main pitch, kicking off at noon. On Sunday the Ladies are away at Banbury.
• Next week the ones are away at third place Bournville. The 3’s are at home to Old Leamingtonians and the Colts should be playing their Warwickshire Cup, opposition not known! The 2’s have no scheduled fixture and may be in the pool.
• At the club over the weekend there is the start of the Six Nations on the (many) TV’s with France v Ireland and Scotland v England on Saturday and Ireland v Wales on the Sunday (3pm). There is also Pro12 and Premiership Rugby on BT Sport and Sky in between the Six Nations.
• If you wish to do the Six Nations Predictions competition then you better be quick. Your entry should be in by tonight!
• The St David’s Night on the 11th March is close to a sell out but there are still a few places if you fancy it. Full info on the St David’s Night is on the web site.
• A note for your diary is the next Former Players Lunch, 5th March v Crewe & Nantwich.
• It is good to report that Hector Smith, son of Alistair, is getting a run out with the Warwickshire U20 squad and recently scored in their 17-12 win over Notts, Lincs & Derby. Wayne Morgan is the U20’s coach. I also think that our full back Jamie Mapletoft was also involved.
• We are now a registered Community Club with Wasps and if you buy your tickets through Kenilworth RFC then we receive a cash back. The link for this is on the home page of the web site.
• The Twickenham International Tickets will be available for collection from the club from 6.30 tonight (Friday).
