Re: Coventry away now on sale

One of my best rugby memories was the occasion I went to see Gosforth play Cov at Coundon Road.

At half time, a bloke sitting behind me was having a heated exchange with his wife/partner about his desire to go for a drink.

He appeared to be losing. Without turning round, I reached back and handed him my hip flask, I heard him take a dram and then he patted me on the shoulder and passed the flask back. Not a word was spoken.

I have had a soft spot for Coventty ever since. But I still hope we beat the **** out of them . 😈

That's brilliant Dick, I bet they had an interesting conversation on the way home!

Reminds me of a game away to Saracens many years ago in my university days, I was on the train back to Manchester afterwards when a man and his son walked past me wearing Sale shirts. Man saw my Falcons shirt and asked how we'd got on, he said they'd just lost at Harlequins. A few minutes later, they walked back past and the man plonked a can of lager on the table in front of me. "Now we can both drown our sorrows!" he said and walked off. #rugbyfamily in action.[/quote

Spot on, long may it continue.
