When halibuts get in the way of a good game…

You make one small mistake… Okay, maybe more than just the one, but even so… A game defined by the presence of the odd Hippoglossus or two is one that tends to be remembered for the wrong reasons. Cam seeing a lot of the halibut Cov defence strong as we win the pen — Tim…

Cov pass the Cambridge test…

Coventry have 8 games of rugby left to play this season. Just 640 minutes. With effectively a 16 point lead over nearest challengers, Darlington Mowden Park. Yet again, not only did Cov do everything that was asked of them, results elsewhere went our way with Plymouth doing what we all hoped they would and beating…

Rowland, the butcher of Coventry…

A fine butcher’s he is too, although he might be well past his sell-by date now. Based on Spon Street, I happen to walk past his shop most Saturday’s and always have a gander, provided they’re in season of course. It’s clearly one of the best purveyors of fresh meat in the whole of Coventry…

Training ground update #12

The players looked sharp out there on the pitch yesterday evening… Any concerns that last week’s layoff might not have done us too many favours were  immediately dispelled once the squad started to go through the practice drills/routines. There was real pace to everything the players did, with the ball being fired first one way…

Saturday’s referee…solutions on the field not off it…Pete White

Some of referee Calum Howard’s reading of the Laws of Rugby certainly bemused the coaches and players last weekend, something that Rowland Winter made an oblique reference to in his post-match interview with John Wilkinson which is now available to read on the official website. Probably choosing his words rather more carefully than I am,…
