Truth you can’t disguise…’cause the camera never lies

And the camera never lies No the camera never lies Truth you can’t disguise Just open up your eyes ‘Cause the camera never lies Michael Franks – The Camera Never Lies Over the past few weeks I’ve been lucky enough to receive John Coles’ photo collections from those Coventry games  he’s attended as one of…

When halibuts get in the way of a good game…

You make one small mistake… Okay, maybe more than just the one, but even so… A game defined by the presence of the odd Hippoglossus or two is one that tends to be remembered for the wrong reasons. Cam seeing a lot of the halibut Cov defence strong as we win the pen — Tim…

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…

The King of Groove….

Everybody wants to be a star Everybody wants to be accepted by the mass Everybody wants to be raging fire But their heat don’t last… …He’s the king of groove (I can’t lose) (summon the royal brass) Earth, Wind and Fire – King of Groove In yesterday’s post I commented on the trust that Rowland…

‘Cause it’s always been a matter of trust…

This time you’ve got nothing to lose You can take it, you can leave it, whatever you choose I won’t hold back anything And I’ll walk away a fool or a king Some love is just a lie of the mind It’s make believe until its only a matter of time And some might have…

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…

Patience key as Cov turn on the style in the last quarter

  For the second week running, Cov went into the break with the momentum very much against them. Last week, Plymouth scored in the final minute of the first half to close the gap to just the one point at 15-14 and, with their tails up, must have wanted the half to continue for a…
