Cov resurgence attracts national coverage…Cliffie H

If you want to know ’bout the bishop and the actress If you want to know how to be a star If you want to know ’bout the stains on the mattress You can read it in the Sunday papers Sunday paper Sunday papers, don’t ask no questions Sunday papers, don’t get no lies Sunday…

The Promised Land…

The boys are learning, and we are so pleased with the performance and professionalism of the team. This is the biggest away league win for the club and it speaks volumes for the boys Nick Walshe’s comment following Cov’s impressive win again Old Albanian on Saturday is one that will be echoed by most supporters….

Success for Nuns and ‘Street is important for Cov too…

Together we’ll stand Divided we’ll fall Come on now people Let’s get on the ball And work together Come on, come on Let’s work together Canned Heat – Let’s Work Together   What is currently happening a full two leagues below Coventry Rugby Club down in National League 3 Midlands might not seem of particularly great significance but,…

Squad size, squad news and squaddies…

I really appreciate the fact that as far as my support of Coventry Rugby Club is concerned, match days aren’t the only weekly focus any more. Tuesday’s now have a particular significance, namely the day announcements regarding  retention and recruitment for the 2017/18 season are released. Some mid-week interest as well now. Coventry Rugby Club…the gift that keeps…

On the tenth day of Christmas…

Just the top three places in Coventry’s ‘Most Valuable Player’ Award 2016 left to reveal…and there are some pretty big names missing from the from the 9 places already decided. No mention, as yet, of Messrs. Wheatcroft, Boulton, Grace, Dyer, Fenner, MacBurnie, Rundle, Litchfield, Stokes, Poole, Conquest, Trimble, Hircock, Snyman, Bone, Povoas…. Whatever the outcome…

Fantasy team poll – results

As promised, today’s post details the results of the recent poll designed to be a light-hearted look at what the strongest side taken from the combined squads over the last two years might look like, as selected by readers of this blog. In all, just shy of 200 readers took part which made it the most…

Blood and Sand – a why and a few wherefores

In yesterday’s post I asked if anyone could offer an explanation as to why Cambridge RUFC is often referred to as ‘Blood and Sand’, especially by its supporters. It wasn’t an act of laziness on my part as I had genuinely spent some time ‘googling’ the Internet for an answer. Failing dismally, I thought I’d…

Cambridge University v Coventry Nighthawks: a one-sided contest…?

Apparently, a nighthawk is: a superb athlete who, courtesy of an alchemical potion, possesses mild super-strength and increased agility and durability from dusk till dawn. He has also used several costume aids, such as a jet-powered artificial wing system, artificial claw tips, lasers and projectile weapons * As well as a bird, of course. So,…

Benches, boots, burgers and bums on seats…

I thought Rowland Winter’s comments after the game on Saturday summed up pretty succinctly what most of supporters must have felt… It was tough to take.. …they’ve done themselves  proud in terms of their effort and attitude and pushed Hartpury all the way He must have felt as disappointed and frustrated (an understatement for sure)…

The Friendlies: Episode 5: the one with all the Homies (the report)

Two games, two very different performances. Two very different sets of playing conditions. If you’ll excuse the pun, in the final game Coventry made heavy weather in beating a tenacious Bury St Edmunds side in the last of the three fixtures, but they certainly weren’t helped by driving rain that caused plenty of problems for both…

Solving the puzzle…

By the end of today players will have had their last opportunity to put forward their cases for selection against Loughborough in a week’s time. And whilst the die has not yet been cast, Rowland Winter has said that the team picked to face Bury St Edmunds later today is certainly in the driving seat for selection against Loughborough Students next…
