Bears ready for Skolars
London Skolars v Coventry Bears
Saturday 25th March 3 pm kick off, New River Stadium
After a weekend with no game, Coventry Bears make the 95 mile trip down the M1 this Saturday to meet London Skolars in a Kingstone Press League 1 encounter.
The mood in the camp is confident as summed up by Head Coach Tom Tsang;
’We're all really looking forward to the game against London on Saturday. We have felt that we have been steadily improving despite results not going our way.
‘Now we are refreshed after a weekend off and will go into Saturday’s match full of confidence.
‘We can put together the positives of the last two games in particular, then we are more than capable of coming back to Coventry with our first league points of the season.
‘We are still awaiting fitness checks on a number of players but hope to welcome prop Elliott Davies back from injury.’
London Skolars, like the Bears, have lost both their opening games, but both teams would point to the fact that the teams they have played are likely to be the strongest in the league this year and likely promotion candidates.
So, for each side, this is a chance to get that welcome first two points of the season, with TomTsang’s men keen to do better than the 52-20 defeat they suffered in London a year ago.
Bears return to action in Coventry at the Butts Park Arena on Good Friday for a 3 pm kick off game.
