Coventry’s starting XV for Saturday’s trip to Hull…

It’s going to be a tough job, that, selecting the side that takes to the field on Saturday to face Hull Ionians in the opening round of the National One 2017/18 season. Going to be a tough old season, too…for the supporters as well as the players if it all goes to plan. Fortunately, I…
