On-loan Coventry Rugby forward James Voss believes that the Greene King IPA Championship is a “very attritional” but admits that the Blue and Whites can deal with the challenges ahead.

He said: “It’s very attritional, it’s a big step up from National One, I think the boys may have a bit of a shock but it’s nothing we can’t handle with the signings we have made and the coaching we have got so we are going to have a good experience.

‘I’m looking forward to it, it’s going to be good.”

Despite training at both Coventry and parent club Leicester Tigers, Voss admits that he is settling in well and “really enjoying” his time at Butts Park Arena.

He said: “Yes, I am really enjoying my time, they have got a good set of boys and good coaching staff.

“I’m really enjoying it and we are looking good so I’m looking forward to getting into the season now and seeing how we can go.”

“Pre-season has been tough, obviously I have been doing half and half with Leicester as well as here, so it has been pretty long days, but I am enjoying my time.

“I am getting a little bit fitter than I was but no its good, I am looking forward for the season to start and kick on.

The 23-year-olds aim is to play at the highest level and he believes that his time with Coventry will be beneficial in making that happen.

He added: “Just to push on and play above Championship level. I am taking each week as it comes and I’m enjoying my time here. I’ll play as well as I can and see what happens.”
