  • Our 1st XV won 39-19 last week against Nuneaton Old Eds to clinch the Midlands 2 West (South) title in style and a good night was had by all! The report and piccies are on the website but, for the record, our try scorers were Tom Clayton and Sam Harrison, both with two, Gaz Renowden and Ed Hannam. There were 1st XV debuts for Fin Gibson and Neil Sutherland to increase our options for the big run-in that we have.
