INCREASED SANCTION for ABUSE OF MATCH OFFICIALS - All please read and note

Please read and note the recent letter from Warwickshire RFU Discipline Committee which sets out increased sanctions. Everyone should read this - not just PLAYERS but SPECTATORS and COACHES as well. The officials do a difficult job and without them we would not be playing rugby - remember regardless of what you think they are always right - just accept it and quietly walk away. If you get carded you are letting down your team, even more so if you pick up a ban which is now likely to be more lengthy so READ about it HERE TAKE IT IN in and REMEMBER IT DURING THE GAME - do not let down your team and club.

Coventry Dragons Pre Season Training

Starts from Wednesday 1st April 2015 from 7.00pm. The last training session will be Wednesday 19th August.
