Rosslyn Park and training ground news…

And so to Rosslyn Park on Saturday. Sixth in the league at home to fifth and a win for Cov leapfrogs us above Park and just that little bit closer to Moseley in fourth. So plenty to play for even at this fairly late stage of the season and with both teams likely to be…

Cambridge v Coventry – another wobble, another win

Well, I kind of got it right… A win and  five points on top of an entertaining afternoon’s rugby. But that’s just about all I correctly predicted. Cov were made to work extremely hard for the win by a Cambridge side that pretty much dominated territory, and indeed possession, for much of the second half…

Cambridge v Coventry – hopefully not one in the eye for Goliath

A settled side makes all the difference…

The weekly interviews with the Coventry coaches, conducted by John Wilkinson and published on the official website, always make for interesting reading. The post match reports, good as they are, tend to just give a factual account of the game, with Rowland’s comments adding some immediate reaction – both extremely useful, of course. However, the interviews with…

Coventry v Ampthill – a real team effort (all 20 of them)

29-19. Four tries, a bonus point and another one of the top teams in the league that has come to the BPA full of expectation and left with nothing other than the realisation that Coventry is probably a far stronger side than its current position in the table suggests. Coventry, the perennial underachievers, are beginning to show some signs of…

Man of the Match v Ampthill

Will the outcome of today’s blog poll to determine Cov’s ‘Man of the Match’ against Ampthill reflect that of the sponsors or will supporters once again vote for someone different?
