At the half way point in the season Harbury remain in pole position in Midlands 4 West (South) with nine victories out of ten.

They were awarded a Home Walkover when luckless Birmingham Civil Service cancelled as they were unable to field a front row. However, the competition for the two promotion spots is very tight with four clubs involved.  Harbury 2nd XV defeated Dunlop 2nd XV 57-5 in a Warwickshire 3 League Match.

 In the second half of the season Harbury have to play both Woodrush and Atherstone away, both of which will be very tough encounters. They will however be desperately keen to reverse their one defeat so far when they entertain Barton Under Needwood at home in late March.

Harbury begin the next round of ten matches on 4 January with a difficult away match at Coventrians. These come after a fortnight’s break from competitive matches over the Christmas period.

It is vital to pick up bonus points both at home and on the road. These are awarded for scoring 4 tries and a loosing bonus point when the defeated side are within seven points of the winning team.

This Saturday (21st December) Harbury entertain Long Buckby in the Quarter Final of the RFU Junior Vase Midlands Division. The winners of which will be four stages from appearing at Twickenham in May 2014.
