Disappointment for Newbold losing their semi-final by just two points
Rugby Lions beat Sileby Town on Saturday to earn the chance to defend their RFU Midlands Junior Vase title. The current Midland champions won their semi-final 48-3 at Webb Ellis Road and now look forward to the final on March 14.
Newbold were away to Northampton Old Scouts in their RFU Midlands Intermediate Cup semi-final and went down by the tightest of margins, 26-24.
Rugby’s other first teams either enjoyed friendly games or a free week before their league campaigns resume this weekend.
