Coventry 34 - 33 Plymouth Albion

Just scraped in!

When Plymouth converted their try in the last minutes of the game to go ahead 31-33, it looked all over, but in the dying seconds Cov got a penalty and took the victory by a single point.

I couldn't make this one (thank you Citroen), but instead was glued to the radio and twitter (thank you @CowshedTim).  At half-time it sounded like we were coasting 26-5, but by full time we were losing 31-33.  I guess we showed some grit to grab the win back with an added-time penalty - I only wish I could've been there.

Rowland Winter has just been on CWR, briefly, and didn't sound too downhearted.  He praised the character of the side to fight back for the win - "a few weeks ago we'd have lost this" was the phrase that caught my attention

I look forward to the comments on the message board.
