I think one of the most important signings we make in the close season is a No8, no idea whats happening with jaques, so assuming hes not at the club, and we know Ed has gone, currently we don't have one. And we saw what a BIG difference having a good 8 makes.

Nigel - would you take that discussion to another thread, so that this one is kept for updates to the list please. I've got it set up with notifications of updates sop that I can deal with them quickly, and so would prefer it if we kept speculative chat off it.

No, he did expressively say he wants to go full-time, something we cannot offer. Good luck to Will, he has been a cracking player for the club, and should go well in the Championship.

Very to see him go. He's been such a prolific achiever for the club, so our loss is unquestionably Donny's gain. Best wishes Will and here's to a good season for you.

Nick, thanks so much for you hard work in preparing this list and in keeping it up to date. Life would be so much more difficult without your annual and regularly updated list.

Here's my usual list of players who have been associated with Coventry at some point this season, sorted by appearances.
As usual, I'll update as news comes in.

OldNick,

Not critical - Broadstreet is one word. The two elements were joined together many moons ago, for some reason.

Thanks Nick for keeping us informed. As for Jacques, I thought he signed a two year contract at the beginning of the season. I hope so. Sorry to see Will Hurrell leave. He's one of those players who get you off your seat when he gets the ball in hand.Good luck to him.

Good to see Jacques has another year to go. Nick, can you confirm that Barry Davies has retired and can you expand on the Mark Hodgkiss situation as the text is hidden behind the picture of Martin Johnson? Keep up the good work Nick.

Barry, I have heard nothing.
Mark, I have heard has not been offered a contract, due to injuries. I do not know specifics.

Looks like we have signed a lock, another Kiwi, welcome to the club Courtney. I wonder what this means for Roan, as nothing seems to have been mentioned.

Still nothing official on Andy Powell, but the rumours persist....

Is anyone really expecting for Andy Powell to come to Cov? Surely he can and will command more than Cov can give. Whilst I wouldn't mind him being here, I can't help thinking that we are not in a position financially or otherwise to gain these high profile signings just yet

it would depend on the player's circumstances. If a player is coming to the end of a professional career and has other career plans but still wants to play rugby part-time, maybe get into coaching, then joining a Nat 1 club where an old team-mate is in charge might fit the bill. Like our current halfbacks.
