OLs RFC Colts v Rugby St Andrews RFC Colts
OLs beat RSA and go top ....
OLs secured an emphatic home win against RSA to go top of the Warwickshire Colts League in their own right . A cold day at the crofts was warmed by some excellent tries and some expert tea making and distribution from our very own all-rounder Adrian Wigham - top effort !
Kai Bailey opened the scoring in the first 5 minutes with a well taken tap and go , dotting down wide the posts , 5-0 . RSA were then guilty of some poor tackling and minutes later Will Davies scores (after a quick juggle) , 10-0 . OLs welcomed back Ben Hawkes after a long absence and he scored OLs third try with a super individual try following some top ground work from Brenan Lumby , Alex Witchell converts , 17-0 . Hawkes , now feeling confident , runs in two more tries before the half is out to make the score 29-0 .
in the Second half RSA work hard and try to and get their hand son the ball but the OLs forwards are in fine form with the Sanneh twins putting in a great shift . Several phases of play sees the next try scored by Thomas Wigham , 36-0 and then shortlky afterwards followed by George Smith , 41-0 . Nathan Chant also pops up with a well earned try to make it 48-0 . RSA don't give up and score their own well taken try minutes later , 48-5 . Jake Pettifer then enters the game and scores three quick tries - getting on the end of some brilliant grubbers and box kicks from Will Davies and Kai Bailey , 65-5 . Not to be out done Ben Hawkes marks a superb come back game with his fourth try to make the final score 72-5 . Great home display from the boys , the victory being even more sweeter on finding out that OCs had succumbed to a tough Newbold outfit .
