It was a case of a game of two halves as the Cavs were beaten 37- 5 away at Old Laurentians.
Spurred on by last week's win away at Rugby St. Andrews, the Cavs took on last season's Merit League champions Old Laurentians at their place. The hosts posted an impressive 95- 0 win last week so it was clear this was not going to be an easy afternoon.
The usual last minute selections headaches of 1st team call ups and mysterious 'Friday night injuries' may have contributed to the Cavs slow start. Straight from the kick off the Cavs failed to gather the high ball and Laurents scored the first of their 30 unanswered points in the first half.
The half time team talk delivered by skipper Andy Fox certainly had a positive effect on the Cavs as the second half was all about us. The Cavs were camped in the Laurent's 22 for long periods in the half and finally all the hard work paid off with Adam Turner scoring the Cavs sole try on the day.
On the day the Cavs were well beaten by a more prepared opposition who are training twice weekly together. What is pleasing is the commitment shown by the lads to come back and effectively draw the second half. If we are to compete with the top teams in the league then the Cavs must train together and we call on all Cavs players to make the effort to come training on Thursdays.
Cavs man of the match was Luke Brown who played in at least 3 different positions in the game.
Next week it's Warwickshire Cup week and pending confirmation from Bedworth the plan is to field a strong Kenilworth A team providing much needed game time for a number of players. More details on this in due course.
