I see your point, dougie, but you can't wrap them up in cotton wool It's dangerous out there on the street - and the roads Oh my Regarding the round ball, heading a football is considered now to be a risk to health If someone has an interest to follow that isn't unlawful and doesn't impact on anyone else, perhaps they should be encouraged, at least in an effort to keep them out of trouble, to encourage being part of a team and to get some fresh air and exercise Thumbs up

I know what you mean Dougie but Jonny's always been careful and has always worn body armour and a headguard.

I was a very proud father on Saturday. Watching my eldest son run out at Twickenham for Farnham RFC who beat Droitwich 37-15 to win the RFU senior vase. Apologies for putting this on the Coventry RFC topic. But my son's a Coventry kid and ex-Broadstreet player and I didn't think Farnham warranted its own topic just for one post. Thumbs up Thumbs up

Wonderful news, mickw - congratulations to your son and his teammates Cheers Farnham's a lovely town and area - nearly moved there some years ago (daughter actually started at Farnham 6th Form College before the move fell through!)

Just wanted to share that I'm very proud of my eldest Coventrian son Jonny who for the second year running has been selected for the Coventry and District Schools Rugby Squad and now goes forward to trial for the full Warwickshire county side Thumbs up Big grin

Sad to read the news of the passing of John Gardiner, a key member of the Coventry and Warwickshire rugger teams in the days when they ruled the sport in England Sad

My Dad was groundsman at Coundon Road for a couple of years in the 60's when Coventry were one of the best teams around, I was ballboy for the games and remember some great club and county games

I was ballboy at another Warwickshire v Cornwall in the 60's when my father was groundsman and remember it was a great crowd packing Coundon Road

On 29th Nov 2015 10:32pm, slash1 said: Was talking to George Cole recently, apparently at 15 years of age, he had a choice of Cov City football club, Warwickshire CCC, or Rugby Union. His Dad advised him to get a proper job and play Rugby. Believe he did an apprenticeship at the Dunlop. Believe that at one point Warwickshire won County Championship, 6 or 7 years on the trot.
My grand father was helping with the running of Dunlop Rugby Club at the time of George Cole

On 29th Nov 2015 11:18pm, MisterD-Di said: Warwickshire won the Rugby County Championship 7 years out of 8, between 1958 and 1965. The only year they missed was in 1961 when Cheshire won it. Since then the county won it in 1986 and 1995. I seem to remember it being a major competition in the past, and Warwickshire's team regularly having about 12 Coventry players in it.
When I watched Warwickshire it was 14 Coventry players !!
