Sexy rugby vs a good old scrap for the ball…

If asked to choose just one passage of play from any Cov game this season that sticks in the mind above all others, which would you go for? I’m not referring to one that led to a try necessarily, although that that could certainly be the end result. No, just a moment in a game…

A Winter warmer as Cov march on…

It was the perfect start to what was to prove to be a perfect afternoon for Coventry as Max Trimble beat the despairing tackle of the Plymouth Albion full back in just the second minute of the game to touch down for the opening score. From that moment onwards, Coventry was never to lose the…

Training ground #8 update and Eoghan Grace

The mood over at Summerhill Lane was upbeat at training yesterday, understandably so  given the convincing wins on Saturday against opposition that was expected to push both Cov teams a little harder than perhaps was the case on the day. The feeling was when arranging the fixtures that having just missed out on promotion from…

Coventry v Rosslyn Park – pick a game, any game…

Were I asked to pick any of the games this season to represent the difference in the Coventry of this season to that of last, then this is the one I would choose. There have been games in which we have scored more tries, been more dominant or which have provided more entertainment in the final…

Cov fans in La La-tu Land as Makaafi signs and three more retained.

It’s hard not to be excited about the arrival of Tongan born Latu Makaafi (or Maka’afi?) given his reputation as a hard-hitting, physical and uncompromising back row forward. Blessed with strong running and handling skills, he is also a player who is going to score tries and with 39 in 111 games for Doncaster in…

Two new signings… Schadenfreude? Guilty as charged.

So it’s Alex Grove and Jack Preece… Big signings, those. Rowland Winter said that he was looking for players to come in with experience, who will be cool under pressure and who will be able to finish games off. These first two certainly fit the bill. And here’s the thing…
