The Guild had been due to play Warley RFC in the cup fixture last Saturday. Unfortunately, Warley RFC were unable to field a team and fulfil the fixture. The RFU have awarded the Club the win and progress through to the next round of the Cup!
A last minute fixture was hastily arranged against city neighbours, Dunlop RFC on Saturday instead, with their 1st XV travelling to Rowley Road for first time in a number of years after having their planned fixture against Harbury cancelled too.
However Dunlop's generiousity in stepping in and fulfilling the fixture so both Clubs had a game was as good as it got for the Guild. The two league gulf in class quickly became apparent, with Dunlop racing ahead in first half following a disappointing display. However the Guild fought back to score three tries in the second half, but were ultimately handed a heavy 69-17 defeat against a very good Midlands 3 West (South) side
Many thanks to Dunlop RFC for the fixture, and good luck with the rest of the season.
