Reinforced Bears team travels to Hunslet.
On Sunday Coventry Bears, plus a dedicated following of supporters, will be making their way up the M1 once again to visit the South Leeds Stadium, home of Leeds ‘other club’ Hunslet.
The last few weeks have not been kind to the Bears as they suffered some heavy defeats. A policy of developing your own player base in a non-traditional area like Coventry will surely pay dividends in the future, but at times they have been exposed.
Ironically, this has been compounded by having key players away on student international duty!
Following Friday’s announcement that the Bears have signed a Dual Registrationn agreement with Hull KR, the team can immediately be strengthened with top class players keen to prove themselves not just to the Bears but to their host club.
Joe Cator and Brad Clavering are twoplayers made available from the Rovers for Sundays game at a place which has not been a happy hunting ground for the Bears in the past, losing 34-0 last season.
So, will the injection of quality players be the boost that is needed for a side which has talent but is still developing?
