Ledbury visit Tile Hill Lane on Saturday 24th March

Ledbury are our visitors on Saturday for 1st XV league action.
Ledbury are a couple of places adrift of OC's in the league table but have taken a few scalps on the way.
Their current form is difficult to ascertain. They had a big loss to Woodrush last week but no one in this league is easy pickings. We stay in third place with a game in hand. The boys do respond to touchline encouragement, so see you there. 3pm kick off.
The Colts are also at home where they take on Old Leamingtonians in a league fixture. This is a top of the table clash and we will want to avenge last weeks defeat in the cup game..
Our 1st XV league fixture away to Bromyard has been arranged for March 31st

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.
