Champagne Rugby from the kick off, we could leave it there as a report, but for those who want a bit more detail.

KCRFC kick off, with the team picking up from where they left off game 1.

KC Scrum on the Madrid 22 that produced a move straight off the training ground with a penetrating line from J Lloyd Jones finished off by R Slater. 5 - 0 to KC

KC restarted, A Baldwin at high speed met the Madrid Player who needless to say did not move forward, KC continued applying pressure though pinpoint tackling in a relentless fashion putting Madrid on the back foot and going backwards in attack.

Soon followed a second try following the forwards picking and going round the corner, edging forward until R Sollom dived over to score KC’s second of the half 10 - 0.

A promising attack from Madrid was snubbed out by J Harding with an interception, breaking away towards the Madrid try line, off loading to R Slater and onto A Neri to cross the whitewash in the corner 15 - 0.

KC kick off reclaimed by A Baldwin, off load to A. Mills for D Betson to score 20 - 0
Madrid tackled solidly which was matched by KCRFC when called upon. Half Time 20 - 0.

Second half saw the introduction of I Burgess, C Whitehead, P Blackmore A Tromans and Ishmail.

Following four phases of clinical play KC found themselves in the five metre channel of the left wing, some delicate pop passes from Iacono, Burgess and Maher resulted in Sollom once again scoring.

The next try was a real team effort with the ball going from coast to coast moving forward with devastating accuracy with A Tromans on the end of a Fantastic passage of play to score 30 - 0

N Small, J Nicklin and L Goddard on the pitch providing fresh legs.

Hands were getting through the Madrid tackles and offloads being made to keep KC moving forward once more. Off the back of a KC scrum Pinner to Macca with a subtle inside off load to Neri running a hard line to break the Madrid line, off load from Neri to Andy Mac to score 34 - 0

Fantastic to watch and a great team effort. At the end of the game the match the referee commented to Giovanni “you play beautiful rugby”.

The European march continues, onto game 3.
