Coventry 50 - 11 Moseley
That's gotta hurt.

An impressive display by Cov from start to finish, as Moseley are put to the sword.
Well, I thought we might pinch it, but I didn't see that coming. Cov looked good today; strong in the scrum, dominant in the lineout, and very sharp in the backs. This was a real marker for the season, and if we keep this up I reckon we'll be right in the mix for promotion when spring rolls around.
It's unfair to single anyone out, but both Stokes tries were things of beauty, and that rolling maul/sprint is certainly going to frighten a lot of teams.

Didn't see the RP result coming, and Ampthill? By four? Hmmm.
Thought Cambridge might do better.
Context given to last week's Hull result by the much closer DMP one this week too.
Interesting division so far.
I'll overlook the teething troubles with a few areas of it (except maybe to say that I was shocked to learn that Old Albanians no longer seem to be in the league...).
In fact it seems hardly fair to mention any individuals really because everyone in the squad played their part today, I thought.
And I don't believe Moseley are a poor side, but we gave them a bit of a pasting today. Fair play to Rowland Winter, he's recruited some terrific players, and more importantly seems to be making a team that is at least the sum of its parts. I don't mean that as faint praise,indeed the opposite. I think as we've seen in the past getting that right is a very hard thing to do.
Early days yet, but I'm very excited about this season!
What do you lot think?
For the first time in many years , i saw a COVENTRY team play as ONE, but with the skills of individuals.
