The Coventry Rugby team for tomorrow night’s Greene King IPA Championship Round 12 trip to Bedford Blues (KO 7:45pm) shows three changes from that which began last week’s home thriller.
Two are in the front row, with Gerard Ellis making his first start of the season at loosehead prop and Scott Tolmie coming in for the injured Joe Buckle. Nile Dacres is the other change, the second rower replacing Alex Woolford.
Darren Dawidiuk, Toby Trinder and Tony Fenner are all returnees to the match day 23 for the game against the resurgent Blues.
Coventry Rugby appreciates all the travelling support that comes from the West Midlands to venues, especially for this, one of the most historic rivalries in the game.
You can get tickets for the 180th instalment of Bedford v Coventry via the Blues’ website. And if you cannot make it to Goldington Road then you can keep up-to-date with the action via twitter.com/CoventryRugby or BBC CWR’s commentary on the BBC Sport website and app.
