OC's overcome Bedworth 29-24 on Saturday18th February

OC's made the trip to Bedworth on Saturday. As expected, it was not an easy encounter. It took OC's 25 minutes to take the lead with an Elliot Sheepy try only to lose it again 5 minutes later when Bedworth converted a well worked try from an angled run from a back taking recycled ball at pace. It would be 26 minutes into the second period before OC's regained the lead. It was eventually a five try hall with both Matty Fielder and Jim Ryan scoring a brace apiece. OC's seemed to finally get into a rhythmn with their four second half tries but Bedworth had the final say with a try at the end of the game to earn themselves a losing bonus point. The boys were great at times but a number of handling errors and a few missed tackles let them down. Bedworth were tenacious. They raised their game when they were in sight of the line and some good strong runs resulted in three good tries.

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.
