James was the first player we signed in 2015 and has knocked up over 50 appearances for the club in that time so its fantastic he has agreed to another year at the club. As one of the older members of the group, 'Gurcho' will continue to play a vital role in mentoring some of our younger players and leading by example in all areas. Its been a pleasure to work with him the last 3 seasons and I am looking forward to another year with him in the group.

James said:

" After initially coming over to the UK for just the one year in 2015, I find myself gearing up for my fourth season with the Coventry Bears. 

In this time I've watched Rugby Leagu grow in the city tremendously which I believe is a testament of how much work we have put in over the last few years on and off the pitch.

 We may not have won as many as we have lost over the years, but our supporters have stuck with us through thick and thin. I think we owe it to them to really dig deep this season and make it our greatest yet."
