Coach Talk – A report on the Chester Game

On Saturday we were away to old Cheshire rivals Chester on their artificial pitch. They had taken the honours last season at their ground so we were looking to even up the score and put in a good performance. We had trained well in the week and everyone was looking forward to the challenge. Chester started strongly with a solid set piece and were looking to play direct, open Rugby. They scored first with a penalty after 6 minutes and a converted try on 28 minutes. We did put pressure on their defence but were unable to break them down due to basic errors, turning possession over and giving away silly penalties. Chester extended their lead just before half time with another converted try giving them a 0-17 lead. We started the second half playing much better controlled Rugby which resulted in a great converted try for flying winger Leon […]

Coach Talk – A report from Steve Hazzelby

Last Saturday we played Hinckley at home in the 6th game of the season. Four wins and a loss in the previous games had put us in a well deserved third place in the league just four points behind leaders Caldy. Previous encounters against Hinckley had always been difficult and we knew that we would have to put in a big performance if we were to take the points. We started strongly with a well taken penalty from Steve Collins within the first five minutes. Hinckley came back with an unconverted try after seventeen minutes but we further extended our lead with another penalty from Steve and a converted try for centre Jack Metcalf on the half hour. Then just before half time a wonder try for flying winger Leon Simpson after fantastic handling by the whole of our back line converted by Oli Glasse. 20-5 up at the interval. […]

Welcome to Hinckley

It is with great pleasure that we welcome Hinckley RFC to Park Lane for this National League Two league fixture. Greetings to all their playing squad, management and travelling supporters to what surely must be yet another exciting game in this ever-improving league. Leicestershire outfit Hinckley were promoted into this league three seasons ago and have proved to be very formidable opponents. Their first season saw them finish in a very creditable 9th position and have been front runners in the league, particularly in the early part of each season.Since then in season 17/18 they finished 5th and in 18/19 finished 10th. This season however they have had a more difficult start, which in their case probably means that we are to see a strong second half! Last season it was a tough day out for us in our November trip to Hinckley and came away following a fairly comprehensive […]
