Read a few times that Ben Foden would be playing for Bedford this weekend but he is not on their named 22. Injuries evened up a little as there v powerful impressive second row Flanagan is out injured (was at Saracens for 2 years before returning this summer) which is a loss for them.. they have a quick outside centre signed from saints that we will have to watch and of course ex saints scrum half lee Dickson which will be a battle royal with Kessell.. there attendance was 2343 against jersey so proves the size of there support as we pride ourselves on ours and we got 2000 against same opposition. We will be so important tomorrow as they will bring a few hundred.. letís raise the roof and get Phil Boulton fired up against his old team

Ben's only played for us once and that was in a pre season friendlily I am not sure he will play for us again. Flanagan will be a loss however Oli Curry is a good replacement. Looking forward to the game tomorrow and seeing all the ex blues players,can't believe it's been nine years, where did that go.

Jaimie elliott who plays at centre for bedford was a superb gutsy player for saints,playing over 100 times and scoring over 30 tries.It will be fascinating seeing ex england and saints scrum half against kessell, who were both in the same squad before dixons move to the blues.

The idea that the standard of refereeing in the Championship would be better than in NL1 was firmly quashed today. He was awful, many of his decisions were unfathomable, he constantly penalised Cov but allowed Bedford to get away with the same thing, and at least one of his AR's was inept. He contributed little to the game and certainly gave Cov nothing.
That said, Cov played so much better than in Cornwall last week. There was a determination, a commitment, a steely resolve and a fighting attitude which saw 5 points come our way. The whole team played well to the extent that it would be difficult to single anyone out. If this performance was the result of the lessons learned from last week, then all power to the players and the coaching staff.
