OCs v Rugby Lions Cancelled Today - Internationals on TV, Free Food

We are very sorry and disappointed to say that today's game has had to be postponed again as the pitches are not playable after the heavy rain. Both 6 Nations matches will be on TV in the clubhouse and there will be FREE food including hot pork and beef batches which we were preparing for this afternoon's game.

SENIOR / COLTS TRAINING - 2015/16 Season!

This season OCs will be running a 1st XV, The Archers (a 2nd XV) and a Colts side. Coaches will be Alan Roberts and Marc Thomas. Senior Training (17+) is every Tuesday and Thursday for rugby related fitness with ball skills. Players of all abilities and ages welcome. click for photos.

INCREASED SANCTION for ABUSE OF MATCH OFFICIALS - All please read and note

Please read and note the recent letter from Warwickshire RFU Discipline Committee which sets out increased sanctions. Everyone should read this - not just PLAYERS but SPECTATORS and COACHES as well. The officials do a difficult job and without them we would not be playing rugby - remember regardless of what you think they are always right - just accept it and quietly walk away. If you get carded you are letting down your team, even more so if you pick up a ban which is now likely to be more lengthy so READ about it HERE TAKE IT IN in and REMEMBER IT DURING THE GAME - do not let down your team and club.
