Sky Sports and BT neglecting the Championship You’d have thought that 2 of the biggest sports broadcasters in the UK would be showing some of the Greene King Championship action on their channels, but both Sky and BT don’t seem to have the broadcasting rights currently. Hopefully as the season hots up, and we get down to the final stages, this might change.
They lost their 2nd fixture of the season, away at the Cornish Pirates, 15-12. However, since then they have been in great form, racking up huge scorelines. The game following their defeat to the Pirates, they took Nottingham apart, with the final score ending up 78-19. They then had another huge victory in their next fixture, smashing Coventry 73-24. The most spectacular of the lot came against the London Scottish, who were destroyed 101-7. Yes the London Scottish have lost all of their 7 fixtures so far, but it doesn’t take away from what an impressive scoreline this was. The Trailfinders are certainly a favourite with people who bet on the Greene King Championship, and will likely be the odds on favourites in their upcoming fixtures against Doncaster and Ampthill. Another side who have begun the season in good fashion are the Jersey Reds.
It’s been a breath of fresh air for us as a club. Former Coventry director of rugby, Rowland Winter “It’s also building momentum into pre-season next year, finishing well, finishing strong. We’ve got some really young players, it will give them some confidence. We went up to Doncaster and beat them, it bodes well for the future as well as the here and now. It’s a chance to create that mentality, a winning environment. Knock-out rugby is a really good thing for our young players, especially. ” The one loss in that final run of four league fixtures was at the hands of their next opponents as Jersey claimed a resounded 66-38 victory at the Butts Park Arena in March.

The former Jersey player and coach said: “There’s an easy excuse there if they want it – ‘oh poor us’ with the short turnaround. But we haven’t heard any of that. It’s just excitement. At the same time, let’s not just be happy with getting to the semi-finals, let’s really go for it.
We said to the lads, how often do you get the chance to win something? Not many lads in our team have probably won stuff. To play knock-out rugby and maybe put yourself in a position where you can get into a final, and challenge for a medal and a bit of silverware. I know the cup has got its doubters, but for us personally, for the players and staff, we’ve really bought into it.
They have won 4 of their 6 matches, with a draw and a loss as well, which puts them in 3rd place overall. Their last 2 fixtures saw them take on Hartpury RFC and Richmond. Against Richmond, it was a very even contest, with Jersey eventually winning the game 26-20. Then their most recent game against Hartpury was a bit more one-sided, as the Reds looked much stronger in their 32-17 victory. Interestingly, the next fixture for Jersey is up against the top of the table Trailfinders, in what is an epic 1st vs 3rd clash. For those fans who are lucky enough to have tickets, they will surely be the envy of fans up and down the country, as it should be an absolutely epic game. However, if you weren’t so fortunate as to pick up tickets, what other options are there? Let’s look at some of the ways to watch the Championship live, from the comfort of your own home.
Coventry Rugby interim head coach Alex Rae (Image: John Coles) “It kind of all adds to the challenge of the trip, ” Rae added. “There’s no moaning from us.

It’s just another thing that’s been thrown at us, another challenge. “The nice thing is, we’re flying out the day before, we will be together Thursday, have a walk around the beach or whatever, have a walk through on the Friday and roll into the game.

Where are the best places to watch the Rugby Championship live? - National League RugbyNovember 11, 2021/ Under: Bespoke If you are a rugby fan, then the autumn and winter months are something to be looking forward to, whilst the rest of the world rues the fact that summer is over, and spring seems a long way away. In rugby union, we are in the midst of the autumn internationals. Recently, we’ve seen two old foes fight it out, as England took on Australia at Twickenham.

Five-day turnaround for Jersey semi an 'easy excuse' Cov won't embraceCoventry Rugby provided cryotherapy treatment for players who are operating on a five-day turnaround before boarding two separate flights for their Championship Cup semi-final with Jersey Reds. The Blue and Whites booked their place in the last four of the competition by seeing off Doncaster Knights by an aggregate score of 62-53 over two legs, the second of which came before more than 2, 000 spectators at the Butts Park Arena on Sunday. Their reward is a trip to the Channel Islands and a Friday night encounter at Stade Santander International against Jersey Reds – who have had two days’ extra rest than the visitors following their quarter-final second leg success against Hartpury University.

Using the TicketCo app, which can be found via www. championshiprugby. co. uk/live-streams, means that fans can not only watch the games in comfort, but bet along with the action, keeping up to date with the ever-changing live odds.
“As a group, we’re just really excited. It’s a little adventure. It’s an opportunity to spend time together. Enjoy each other’s company and make some memories really. ” Coventry endured a tumultuous Championship season during which director of rugby Rowland Winter was replaced by Rae on the day-to-day running of the playing operation in January before Winter’s departure from the club was officially confirmed in a brief statement in late April. But Cov finished the league season strongly, winning three of their final four games to finish ninth before commencing their cup campaign that moves into its fifth game on Friday. “It’s been really good for us, ” explained Rae. “We’ve really bought into it.
