We are less than a week away from the start of our full-preseason training and, with a few new players joining the squad, we felt it would be useful to get an early training match into our schedule to test the new combinations and try to pick back up from the end of last season. We wanted a tough and physical match-up and that is what we are hoping for, from the Prison Service team. We already have a link with former Bear Richie Hughes in the prison service and the club still trains at Newbold Revel the national prison service college in Rugby, Warwickshire.
Sam Roe, Manager of HMPS RL said:
We are really looking forward to playing a side of Coventry's quality. We have re-formed recently and are the up and coming service side who want to make a mark. We are hoping to be competitive during the game and show what we can do against a professional side. We aren't too worried about a result but how we perform. Hopefully the game will get us some publicity to attract more fixtures for us in the future.
