SENIOR / COLTS TRAINING - 2017/18 Season!

This season OCs will be running a 1st XV, The Archers (a 2nd XV) and two Colts sides. Coaches will be Alan Roberts and Marc Thomas with Trent McMurray for Colts. Senior Training (17+) is every Tuesday and Thursday for rugby related fitness with ball skills. NEW PLAYERS OF ALL ABILITIES WELCOME. New Season Start date is Thursday 22nd June from 7pm.


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.
