13 October 2012, AEI 31, Rugby Lions Tailenders 22

Having finally broken their losing start to the season in the previous week, the AEI continued with a morale-boosting victory against a vastly experienced team. With injuries recovered from, an almost full-strength AEI played to their strengths in the backline and provided a pacy threat out wide which the Tailenders […]


14 April 2012, AEI 5, Trinity Guild II 24

A host of unavailabilities meant that the must-win final league fixture was left in the hands of 12 players and, although Trinity Guild generously made up the numbers even after two AEI players had succumbed to injury, resulted in a disappointing finish to the season. Visiting a strong home team […]


31 March 2012, AEI 55, Coventrians II 5

AEI ran out comfortable winners in a match which was uncannily similar to their pre Christmas visit to Coventrians; the visiting team again could only muster 14 players and were further reduced by half-time through injury and were unable to cope with the home team’s pace on the ball and […]


24 March 2012, AEI 25, Coventry Tech II 38

Fielding a much larger squad of 19 than the previous week but in much warmer conditions, the AEI were unable to capitalise on the dominance provided by the pack and slipped to another defeat in a game which they should have won comfortably but for some poor passing which gifted […]


17 March 2012, AEI 19, Tailenders 32

An ever increasing list of injuries coupled with the final Six Nations weekend meant that an understrength AEI lost to the more experienced home team in a hastily arranged fixture. The backline showed only two regular players with flanker Lee Clark pressed into the centres and recent recruit Darvey Oliver […]


10 March 2012, AEI 12, Copsewood II 27

  A disjointed and strangely lacklustre performance lead to a home defeat which AEI can have no complaints about. Fielding a full strength side and several returning players on the bench adversely affected the AEI who seemed to play the game as if the sheer number of players available meant […]


3 March 2012, AEI 40, Spartans 22

  A much more cohesive performance than last week from AEI resulted in a win albeit in unfamiliar surroundings at Old Saltleians’ ground due to match congestion at the home of Spartans. The match was a rerun of the fixture earlier in the season with AEI able to break the […]


25 February 2012, AEI 12, Standard 20

  AEI suffered a setback in their fight for top spot with another away loss with only a scratch 15 which was put together at the very last moment due to several last minute withdrawals and lack of effective communication. The game had an intended early start but with 45 […]


18 February 2012, AEI 43, Old Leamingtonians III 10

  Having had a last gasp victory 45-44 earlier in the season, Saturday’s scoreline at least painted the picture of an altogether more comfortable win but the match itself was a closely fought affair. With an experienced and muscular pack at the visitors’ disposal, AEI’s pack were unable to dominate […]


28 January 2012, AEI 66, Stoke Old Boys II 3

  AEI returned to winning ways with an emphatic home victory against a bare 15 man opposition. From the outset AEI dominated proceedings and finished the match with the lion’s share of both territory and possession. The home side had the upper hand in almost all aspects of the game […]
