The advantage of writing this just a few hours before the game means that I can tell you that it's going to be a wet one.
Forwards will be rubbing their hands with glee today, and wingers will be wishing they had shorts with pockets in. At least that's the way it used to be on days like these, but this Cov side seem to like spinning the ball out regardless so it'll be interesting to see how it pans out. Plus the current home shorts, as modelled on twitter don't seem to have much room for pockets, let alone for space to put your hands in them. Put it this way, if you were carrying any spare change in them it'd be easy enough to tell if you had enough money for a pint, without actually having to dig it out!
Anyway, team news is as follows:
Coventry: 15 James Stokes, 14 Corey Hircock, 13 Tony Fenner,12 Callum MacBurnie, 11 Dan Rundle, 10 Will Maisey, 9 Rhodri Adamson, 1 Andy Brown, 2 Scott Tolmie, 3 Phil Boulton, 4 Tom Jubb, 5 Tom Poole, 6 Brett Daynes, 7 Sam Harry, 8 Eoghan Grace. Replacements: 16 Matt Price, 17 Boris Stankovich, 18 Darrell Dyer, 19 Alex Smit, 20 Rob Knox.
