Colts Take a comfortable victory against Newbold on Saturday 16th September

The initial exchanges indicated we were in for a good game and Newbold took an early lead. However OC's stepped it up and denied Newbold the ball for long periods. Speed of hands was terrific and OC's were able to move it wide at will. The second phase possession was secured and both forwards and backs carried the ball well. With Newbold in possession the tackling was generally good and we overturned Newbold several times. OC's ran out comfortable winners 43-19. The penalty count against OC's was high both in attack at the breakdown and in defence. A couple of things need sorting there. Don't get the opportunity to watch these boys very often but they were impressive. Ball skills, determination, working for each other was excellent. All those attending the next VP lunch are in for some great entertainment when these boys take on Rugby Lions on the 14th October.

The Archers were on the losing end. They stuck at it but Berkswell and Balsall took the victory.

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.
