Stoke cry off the league game tomorrow but The Archers are at home

The Stoke pitch is still unplayable and an alternative venue has not been proposed. So, a blank weekend for the 1stXV squad.
The Archers will play against a Coventrians side at Tile Hill Lane with a 2:15pm kick off. Hopefully the Club should be lively with the Six Nations games being shown.

OCRFC supported the COVENTRY bid to be the UK CITY OF CULTURE 2021

SENIOR / COLTS TRAINING - 2019/20 Season!

For the new season OCs will be running a 1st XV and The Archers (a 2nd XV) with occasional Vets matches. Coaches will be Alan Roberts and Marc Thomas. 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 Tuesday 2nd July 2019.

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.

Recycle for Cycling

This is an update for parents from our Mini and Junior Section. We now have a set of pop-up banners for our mini age groups (under 7s to under 12s) for use during home and away matches and for training. Sylvia would like to thank everyone who donated rugby kit for us to re-sell. We raised £570 which helped to contribute towards them. The aim for the 2019 / 2020 season is to buy a bike rack. Sylvia hopes to achieve this with the valuable help from Anna and Jack.

Thank you Sylvia Cobbold
