  2. Will be happy if Bears improve on the home score against Oldham. We'll get at least one more win this season but it won't be this week. Bradford Bulls 62 v 12 Keighley Cougars Doncaster 18 v 14 Newcastle Thunder Hemel Stags 6 v 32 Whitehaven Hunslet 24 v 18 London Skolars North Wales Crusaders 42 v 18 West Wales Raiders Oldham 48 v 18 Coventry Bears Workington Town 25 v 22 York City Knights
  3. I'm sat on the bus back to Coventry after watching the Bears get back to somewhere near their fighting best at Workington today. With a bit more luck the final score would have been much closer and we shut Town out for long periods of the game. We could have done better when the hosts were down to 11 men but we kept going and were rewarded with two late tries that made the score a little more realistic. Much happier than last week
  4. Hopefully Bears will have shaken off the fuzziness of last week's performance and play up to the standards they set around the winning run of games. Looking forward to my first trip to Derwent Park. SATURDAY 11th AUGUST West Wales Raiders v York City Knights 6-98 SUNDAY 12th AUGUST Doncaster v London Skolars 30-18 Hunslet v Hemel Stags 54-12 Keighley Cougars v Newcastle Thunder 24-28 North Wales Crusaders v Bradford Bulls 12-66 Oldham v Whitehaven 30-18 Workington Town v Coventry Bears 30-24

  7. That was certainly true on Sunday at Bootham Crescent. Will be very tough against a reinforced Doncaster this week so hoping they'll have recovered a bit by then.
  8. .. And Bears need to stop them if they are to confirm their improvement since the opening day of the season. To be fair, they've learnt a lot about sound defending since then and I think it will be closer than many will be predicting.
  9. Feel free to rest some key players next week 😉

    Keighley Cougars Preview

    Mystic Mike called it! Delaney and Russell both played superbly and Mikey's hat-trick brought the house down. Would love to see them again in Bears shirts but not sure if this is going to happen this season.
  11. We were told to lower our expectations at Coventry Bears this season. Bears would be concentrating on developing a squad of Midlands based players who would need time to be competitive at this level. We hosted Leeds Rhinos in pre-season. We played at Widnes Vikings in the 5th round of the Challenge Cup. We have now played home and away fixtures against the famous Bradford Bulls. Half of our squad is away at the student home internationals (so proud of this) This is our 20th anniversary season..... Having been smashed at Cougar Park.... Oh yeah today was the best day in the history of Coventry Bears. Expansion teams... yeah we're having a laugh
  12. I'm so proud of Coventry Bears after today's performance. They fought really hard for that win against a strong Skolars side. It was our best defensive effort of the season I think and we showed imagination and commitment to score the tries to come from behind twice. More of that next week and another win is in the bag.
  13. Me too. Came over to Toronto to watch Cov Bears and that experience inspired me to come here for today's game. I missed half the action from explaining the previous moves to American first timers but didn't mind because of the fantastic atmosphere and the occasion. Still surprised that nobody I've talked to away from the game even knew it was going on but then it's a big city and it's not yet a big sport over here. From tiny acorns etc and so forth.... I'm calling it a great success. Was a really entertaining game and much appreciated by the crowd around me.
