Kenilworth RFC News for 14th Feb 2020
- A very decent win for our Men’s 1st XV last week away at Worcester Wanderers, 26-19. We showed a lot of guts when Worcester levelled at 19-19 but, facing the strong wind, we took the game to Worcester and achieved a bonus point win with tries from Tondi Mpambawashe, Connor Burnet, Mikkel Andresen and Luke Truslove plus three excellent conversions from Jayde Cruickshank. We are now right back in the thick of it at the top of Mids 1 west following the defeat of Dudley K by Lichfield. Lichfield are now top and lead Dudley K by 1 and us by 4.
- The 2nd XV won a close game with Old Laurentian, 33-32 with three of our Colts, Alfie Armstrong, Sam Peppitt and Ardal Yallop all getting a first senior start and performing well. Sam helped himself to three tries and four conversions. The other try scorers were Miles Hibbs and James Lilley and this result puts them in second spot in Warwickshire 1, four points adrift of Leamington. Our Colts defeated Pinley 22-15 with tries for David Opoku Fourjour (2) and Finn Yallop (2). The Women’s game at Crewe was postponed for the second time.
