WARWICKSHIIRE 2ND XV CUP, 1/4R FINAL KENILWORTH 38 NUNEATON OLD EDS 0 Kenilworth Cavaliers turned in a good performance to defeat Nuneaton Old Eds in a game shortened by a serious injury to a NOE player. As one on looking wag said “only Kenilworth could bring on an Italian International for the second half when 33-0 up!” Kenilworth were always in control although NOE did threaten early on. The first try came from a near solo effort by fly half Nick Prince, converted by himself. The second came from an unlikely source with prop Rhys Llewellyn providing a superb ‘pirouetting’ pass to Adam Clifford who then ran 3/4r the length of the pitch to score, not converted. A period of stalemate then occurred and with K’s under pressure Nick Prince did some magic on his own line before releasing Adam Clifford to scamper for the line and offload to Tim Badcock for another score, converted by Prince. 19-0. Almost from the kick off the opposite winger Rhys Jones then made a superb run to the line and a try, converted by Prince and a 26-0 score-line approaching half-time. Straight from the kick off Kenilworth collected the ball and Matt Cooper ran in another try, converted by Prince. Kenilworth rang the changes at half-time with Marco Stanojevic, Tom Nicholson and Matt Gibson replacing Nick Prince, Mark Powell and Mark Wylie. Almost immediately the creativity of the K’s backs created a superb try started by George Trafford, carried on by some great interplay between Marco Stanojevic and Jai Purewal and finished off under the posts by Adam Clifford. Adam Hadwin's attempted conversion almost brought the posts down as it clattered into the cross bar. Kenilworth then began to entertain the watching crowd with some exciting backs play, matched by some good forward play orchestrated by Rhys Llewellyn and Mat Cooper. However the entertainment was cut short mid way through the second half when a NOE player suffered a serious injury. After consultation with both captains the referee called a halt to the game.
