KENILWORTH RFC NEWS, 9th FEB 2017
o Refereeing course in May
• Sadly our Ladies exited the National Cup last weekend, going down 5-50 to a powerful and impressive Reading Abbey who play in a higher league. Our girls put up a superb performance however and were praised by their hosts for the efforts that were put in. The report on this game is on the web site. Our Pirates played a re-arranged fixture at home to Old Leamingtonians and went down 33-40 to a team boasting a few of their first XV.
• The other big event last week was the trip to Wasps. On Sunday an amazing total of 348 Kenilworth members travelled to Wasps for our ‘takeover’ day. There were 101 children involved in activities on the pitch and prior to the game the club was presented with our official Wasps Partnership plaque. The pics of the day are on the web site. Please remember that if you buy your Wasps tickets through the link on our web site then the club receives cash back on your purchase. This includes season tickets!
• This weekend (11th Feb) our ones are at home to Burton, kick off 2.15. Burton are riding high and are second in the league so this will be a very good scalp to take! The programme for the game will be on the web site on Friday evening and the game progress will be tweeted. There is an informal hot buffet before the game if you fancy a wee bite. On Sunday the table topping Ladies are at home to Longton and a win would go along way to clinching the league title. Our Cavaliers are down to play away at Rugby Lions.
• 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 and if you are interested in attending then please contact Bruce Doe.
• 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.
