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…

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…

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…

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…

Supporting Cov is far from routine…

I was born by the river In a little tent And just like the river I’ve been running ever since It’s been a long, long time coming But I know a change gonna come Sam Cooke – A Change Is Gonna Come It’s been a long time coming. 41 games under Rowland Winter and just…

Cov supporters the real winners in the pre-match build up

Please please tell me now is there something I should know Is there something I should say that’ll make you come my way Do you feel the same cause you don’t let it show Please please tell me now is there (please please tell me now) something I should know Is there (please please tell…

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…

Training update #12…Cov Development game postponed…Loughborough Students

The news that the Development Academy’s game against Chinnor has had to be postponed came as a big disappointment to the supporters who turned up to watch the training session yesterday evening. And it was an even bigger disappointment to Coventry’s Director of Rugby, Rowland Winter. Coventry has agreed to rearrange it, tentatively, for 18th…

Training pays off as Cov pushed all the way…

Habits change into character Ovid This was a disappointing Coventry performance against a good Bishop’s Stortford side that on yesterday’s performance look to be one of the few promoted teams in recent seasons that appear strong enough to do more than just survive in their opening season in this league. Despite what seemed a rather…
