With a season of Championship rugby now tucked firmly under our belts and talk 12 months ago from within of Cov perhaps looking to be a top 4 side within two or three seasons, I thought it might be interesting just to gauge where Cov supporters reading this post believe Cov SHOULD be aiming to finish next April. What would be a realistic finish for the club in 10 months.
It’s no more than a bit of fun prior to any pre-season action and something designed simply to create a bit of interest – no more than that. Once we’ve seen the pre-season games we’ll probably be in a better position to form a slightly more reasoned judgement but aspirations for the coming season have already been discussed elsewhere, so this is merely another way of generating a bit of discussion.
Remember, I’m not asking where Cov WILL finish, just what you think a realistic finish might be given the calibre of players Cov have recruited, the improvements in the backroom support and on the back of a promising end to last season and a highly respectable 8th place. I guess I’m asking for pragmatism with a bit of hope tossed into the mix…
I did something similar last year so it will be interesting to see if expectations have increased over the last 12 months.
I’ll publish results in a week’s time.
As always, many thanks in advance for taking part.
So, now recruitment appears done and dusted (and I’m including Purdy in that!) and before pre-season performances can be assessed, where do you think Cov should be looking to finish in the Championship next April.
