Kenilworth had the early dominance from the kick off and rumbled forward against Southam. Near the line Matt Slater peeled off and scored a try near the posts. 5 Nil. Harvey Joy converted: 7 nil. 3 Mins.
Southam then lifted their game and put Kenilworth under quite a bit of pressure over the next 10 mins. Penalties quickly taken, (reminiscent of the Home Southam game), meant that they found themselves only yards out from the Kens line, where they mauled over to score, no conversion 7-5. 15 mins.
Another period of equal play ensued, ended by a try from Harvey Joy, playing scum half, darting over to score, probably with the kick in mind near the posts. Duly converted 14-5. 20 mins.
Kenilworth ended the half back much more at their best. A great backs move that went all the way down the line, popped out of contact to the winger Calum Martin was returned from contact to Sam Bailey, who again off loaded the ball on to hooker Olly Jones who finished from 12 yards out. Superb rugby, best try of the day 19-5 Harvey Joy converted. 21-5 24 mins.
After Half Time the team was re jigged. The Coaches in the first half favouring players who had had less game time in recent matches.
The main news to report in the second half was the first hat trick of the season for Oscar Haynes, who had moved to scrum half, and found openings aplenty. Scoring after 8 mins and 21 mins. Taking the score to 33-5 after 21 mins second half.
The scoring ended after 27 mins when Matt Slater made a great break from the Kens 22 and off loaded to Oscar, who with much left to do, who ran in from 30 m out. 38-5 no conversion.
