Old Warwickians

2016 OWs vs Old Silhillians

Saturday 10 September

With thanks to OW captain Matt Riley.

Warwick hosted Solihull for the annual old boys’ rugby game as a curtain raiser for the 1st XV vs. Bromsgrove. The weather didn't suit Warwick's usual enterprising style of play and so this game proved to be as tight as ever. Flashes of brilliance from the Warwick backs were halted by knock-ons due to the poor conditions and Solihull took advantage, using their dominance in size and the scrum, winning penalties and kicking to the corner. From there they scored driving maul tries which eventually just pipped the game for them. Special mention should go to Will Stride and Joe Nellany in the backs and Josh Fox and Josh Emery in the forwards, for their exemplary performance.

Back: Josh Emery, Tom Emery, Tom Howard, Noah Thorne, Josh Fox, Will Roberts, Barney Sampson and Joe Nellany. Front: Toby Whelan, Jamie Walker, Ollie Matthews, Jack Wyatt, Matt Riley, Will Stride, George Nellany, Cameron Dee and Stephen Ho.
