Squad to face Newcastle Thunder
Preview & Squad:
Coventry Bears v Newcastle Thunder
Sunday 24th February 3pm Kick Off
Butts Park Arena
Tom Tsang looks ahead to Sunday and names his 19 to take on Newcastle Thunder.
‘Last week was a solid start for us and we were happy to get the win early in the campaign.
However we know we still have a lot of improving to do if we really want to make a mark in the competition this year. Newcastle pose a huge challenge, especially in terms of physicality.
They have a very big pack and equally big outside backs who run hard with aggression. Our boys are well aware of this and know they need to meet fire with fire and so it shapes up to be a feisty game on Sunday.
We have recently signed a Dual Registration Agreement with London Broncos and due to a couple of injuries picked up last week we will be utilising this immediately.
Rob Butler will replace Dan Gover who has a back strain, Leicester-lad Sam Davis comes in for Mitch Shaw who has picked up a hand injury, while Jimmy Meadows will partner Nick Newman in the halves.
All three are known by a large number of our squad already which has made their addition very easy.
We have high aspirations this season and Sunday will be an indicator of what we can achieve.'
