Can anyone give an up to date squad list? I have noticed recently players names not being mentioned.e.g McBurnie,Hircock and Grace.

A quick glance at Saturday's programme, which has a recently updated squad list, has all three still listed.

It was announced a while back that Eoghan's injury will prevent him playing for the rest of the season.

Callum was last listed as playing at Birmingham & Solihull on loan, although he doesn't appear to have played there recently.'

Corey is not getting selected now that Heath Stevens has joined Cov

Jean,
.
As far as I can make out we have signed 6 new players and retained 16 others so far.

New Players

Latu Makaafi, Jack Preece, Alex Grove, Nile Dacres, James Neal, Harry Morley


Retained

James Litchfield. Phil Boulton, Scott Tolmie, Tom Jubb ,Brett Daynes, Olly Povoas. Pete White, Tony Fenner, Will Maisey, Tom Wheatcroft, Heath Stevens, James Stokes, Cliffie Hodgson, Andy Brown, Max Trimble, Rob Knox

In addition Jake Byrne has been promoted from the development squad (I am informed that he has yet to sign the contract on offer).

I know there will be further announcements regarding further retentions, upgrades from the development squad and new arrivals over the course of the next couple of weeks.
Hope I have no omissions - sorry If I have.

Geoff

Nile Dacres, according to the club. The other changes I have are that Jake Byrne is moving up from development to the main squad, and I think it was Tom Jubb rather than Tom Poole who was announced as staying at the same time as Latu Makaafi was announced. Let's hope it's both of them.

Ah Nick - you're losing it. I have not mentioned Tom Poole and was not sure if Jake Byrne's elevation to the main squad was public knowledge yet.
As stated other announcements will be forthcoming and from a personal standpoint, I hope Tom Poole, Matt Price, Rob Knox and Andy Brown are retained.
Boris' assertion that a settled team is contributing to recents raised performance levels is perhaps a sure sign of the coaching staff's thinking

Lets remain patient and leave the announcements to Rowland and the coaches.

They announced it publicly on the eighth of March Geoff. http://www.coventryrugby.co.uk/2017/03/08/history-maker-jakes-moving-up

Thanks Kimbo, I hadn't read that article thoroughly. Have amended the list and will continue to do so as other announcements are made.

Geoff et al

There will be more announcements as soon as things are certain, but if you read the pieces put out on Matt Price and Andy Brown in recent weeks, there are pretty big hints.

Great to see that Phil Brown, Rob Knox and Max Trimble have been retained for next season. But farewell to Callum McBurnie. A great player who has been overlooked during the last couple of seasons. Good luck to Callum where ever he goes. Good luck as well to the other players not with us next season.

I must have missed the announcement from the club that Heath Stevens has been retained. Has he? I certainly hope so.

I see from the intial announcement back in February that he signed for two and a half years, so presumably he is staying, but knowing that contracts aren't really all that binding, it'd be nice to see it confirmed. Fingers crossed.

Here's hoping
