RUGBY: Rugby & District’s Clonmel Cup

This year’s Rugby & District Clonmel Cup Final between Rugby St Andrews and Old Laurentians 2nd XVs will take place on Sunday, April 17 at Webb Ellis Road, kick off 2.15pm.

Both sides enter this final with excellent league records, with OLs finishing second in Warwickshire 1 and Saints currently top of Warwickshire 2.

To reach the final Saints had comfortable victories over Long Buckby (28-13) and Newbold (29-12). OLs eased past Daventry (41-0) but were taken to extra time before beating holders Lutterworth 23-20.

OLs, by virtue of their higher league status, should start as favourites but with one win apiece from the last 2 encounters between the sides a good competitive game seems likely.

Admission is £2 for adults and £1 for pensioners and under 16s, going to Rugby & District funds.
