Old Leams fight back but OC's hold on for victory in season finale. 14-10

Well this game contained a bit of everything again. A couple of brilliant tries in the first twenty minutes from Elliot Sheepy and Josh James(JJ) but that was it, there would be no further points scored for the home side. OL's responded with a penalty kick on the stroke of half time and added a converted try after about fifteen minutes of the second half. 14-10 was the final score but there were opportunities for both sides. OC's strung some good phases together to get close but seemed to get penalised in their eagerness to cross. OL's running backs broke through loose tackles a couple of times and they were unfortunate with an attempted interception which nearly came off. Yellow cards to both sides, generally for illegal tackles, interrupted the flow of play and there were far too many penalties conceded. Clearance kicks and penalty touch kicks were not good today and it allowed OL's to counter too often. Some great performances out there however. Josh Kent's athleticism in the linesout and around the field are great and two colts playing in the back row today, Jake Elvidge and Harry Griffin were tremendous. Michael Leavers (Biggsy) made his final appearance (allegedly) after a thirty two year playing career with the club. Outstanding.

ABUSE OF MATCH OFFICIALS-SANCTIONS DOUBLED 2016: ALL PLEASE NOTE

Please read and note the latest letter from Warwickshire RFU Disciplinary Committee which sets out increased sanctions. Everyone should read this - not just PLAYERS but SPECTATORS and COACHES as well. PLEASE THINK ABOUT IT: SPECTATORS (you know who you are) BARRACKING FROM THE TOUCHLINE CAN INCITE THE PLAYERS. 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 extremely lengthy so READ about it HERE TAKE IT IN in and REMEMBER IT DURING THE GAME - do not let down your team and club.
