The devil in disguise…?

You fooled me with your kisses You cheated and you schemed Heaven knows how you lied to me You’re not the way you seemed You look like an angel Walk like an angel Talk like an angel But I got wise You’re the devil in disguise Elvis Presley – You’re the devil in disguise Over…

Ice-cold Winter proves too hot for Ampthill

63-14. It was a scoreline to warm the hearts of every Coventry supporter fortunate to be at the BPA yesterday afternoon. Cov dominated every area of the game and come 4.45,  Ampthill hadn’t just been beaten, they’d been dismantled, piece by ineffectual piece. Harsh if you’re an Ampthill supporter, but I’m just saying it as…

The DoRs’ post-match comments…Development Squad v Richmond…two SC coaches already to Moseley…Man of the Match v Plymouth

I thought Saturday’s  post-match comments from Keiran Hallett, Plymouth Albion’s Head Coach, and Rowland Winter were really interesting and revealed a little of the current gap in quality between the two sides. Hallett was extremely gracious in defeat, recognising that although Plymouth went into the half time break arguably on top having scored the second…
