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…

Man of the Match result v OAs…Cov Squad 2018/19…Jack Preece

The results of the Man of the Match award for Saturday’s game are interesting in that all the top three places went to the back row: Brett Daynes – 28% Olly Povoas – 22% Latu Makaafi – 18% On the morning of the game I did write that: Brett Daynes, alongside Olly Povoas and Latu…

On the 1st Day of Christmas the Cov MVP you voted for is…

Twelfth place in this season’s Coventry Rugby Club’s  Most Valuable Player 2017 poll goes to: Anthony Matoto. Had Matoto remained out on the wing, which was the position he started off in when he arrived here in August, I’m not altogether sure he would have made the top 12. Conversely though, had he been playing…

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…

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…

Numbers starting to add up for Cov….

Rather than begin with the lyrics of a song as is sometimes my wont, I thought I’d include a couple of clips from Cov’s game at the weekend. The first is a clip of Max Trimble’s try, included in Rugby Touchline’s (the official England Rugby Twitter account) best scores from National One last weekend. It’s…
