OC's overwhelmed by Kidderminster on Saturday 13th April. 74-5

Kidderminster played with professionalism; in all senses of the word, to overcome OC's on Saturday 13th April. Power running from forwards created openings for two tries in the first five minutes but OC's amazingly struck back with a try after just eight minutes. Jake Arms was timing his runs well today, taking the ball at speed. He got us to the Kidderminster 22 and a great backs move from a lineout almost put Connor Thrippleton in on the left. The recycled ball was picked up by Paul Wilkes who touched down.
So, 14-5 after 8 minutes and that would be the end of OC's scoring for the afternoon. Kidderminster would score another five tries in the first half coming at pretty regular intervals. They played with strength and confidence. Hand speed was excellent and the tackles went in but such was the strength of running the offloads were snapped up and overlaps occurred. As always OC's stuck at it and we got close but some turnovers stifled our attacks.
The second half was very different, It would take Kidderminster twenty minutes to score and their final three tries all came in the last six minutes to make the the game end tally 74-5
Miracles were not meant to happen today but despite the Kidderminster superiority there were some gritty performances. Skipper Elliot Sheepy led by example and Cruise Kelly-Evans playing his first game of the season at No7 was excellent.
There wasn't a bad performance from anyone today but pace and experience was the cruncher.

ABUSE OF MATCH OFFICIALS-SANCTIONS 2018: 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.
