OC's lose to Olney in a well fought Midlands Cup game

Trip down was in torrential rain as was the minute silence and the start of the match.
OCs started brightly and won an early penalty ? kicked for touch. Put some pressure on Olney but did not score. Scrum in Olney 22, ball goes to ground and Olney break away, couple of quick recycles and they score in the corner. 7-0
We look good and we are moving the ball well. We are recycling the ball well and are unlucky not to score. We, again, have good possession with a couple of good breaks and passes between Jack Butler and Elliott Sheepy before Elliott goes over. 7-5
Jack Fennell is playing really well, scrummaging and running some great lines, on his debut. Our defence is pretty good with good tackles, Matt Gill takes a bit of a heavy hit before Olney fly half kicks to the corner for their 2nd try. 14-5
Olney attack from the kick off and score under the posts. 21-5
Good start to the 2nd half with good pressure and good phases before Chas Hudson scores. 21-10
We are playing really well but just not scoring. Olney manage to turnover and run straight through the middle to score under our posts. 28-10
We continue to defend, however, Olney manage to score a couple of late tries making the score that flatters them somewhat 40-10.
We played well today and there were a lot of positives and good performances from players, old and new, not necessarily playing in their prime or favourite position. A lot to be proud of from players, coaches and spectators.

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.
