Esher – a curate’s egg or a step backwards?

So how was it for you…? It clearly didn’t make the earth move for Rowland Winter, judging by his post-match interview immediately after the game… Hear what @RowlandWinter had to say about today's game #CovRugby pic.twitter.com/W8OVNfsoLn — Coventry Rugby (@CoventryRugby) January 28, 2017 As DoR, the game is his to call and it’s hard to…

C’est magnifique, mais ce n’est pas Le National 1….

Sometimes reality can be a bit of a bummer. 5 games unbeaten, supporters talking about the remainder of the season with increasing confidence, performances improving significantly over the last few games… …and then along comes Hartpury College. And with Hartpury, along comes the reality check. However good we are and, in terms of National 1, I saw…

We’re on the road to nowhere? Me, I’ve a city in my mind…

We’re on a road to nowhere Come on inside Taking that ride to nowhere We’ll take that ride Talking Heads – Road to Nowhere By beginning the post with the lyrics from Talking Heads’ ‘Road to Nowhere’, you’d be forgiven for thinking that this is going to be post full of gloom and doom; a…

When this season’s fixture list was first published, I was interested in three dates in particular. Those of the home and away games against Moseley and the away game at Esher. And the Esher game is just three days away… On the face of it, I guess for most supporters Saturday’s visit to Molesey Road…

No vintage whine from Boris, previous Cov Head Coaches and a poll

Answers revealed further down the post… ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ It made a refreshing change to see a coach give a referee his full support following a game in which his team lost and a…

What should supporters be hoping for over the close season…?

I don’t think Rowland Winter officially takes over the reins until the end of May, by which time we’ll only be 8 weeks away from the pre-season friendlies. However, two months is plenty of time to change things around and put in place the various systems that will be so relied upon come the start of the season….
