Home thoughts turn to Coventry
Last updated at 15:32, Monday, 15 October 2012
TYNEDALE’S see-saw season continues tomorrow, when they welcome Coventry to Corbridge.
Tynedale have won all three of their home games, but have lost all three away games.
Coventry have also won three and lost three, putting both teams on 17 points, but Coventry’s better points differential means they are sixth in the table, while Tynedale are 10th.
Tynedale are hoping to welcome back some of their injury victims tomorrow, including Matty Outson and David Dickinson, which should help their chances of victory.
Tynedale’s failure to convert tries proved costly again on Saturday and an overall return of 13 out of 24 this season means that only Cambridge have a worse record, with six of their 16 tries converted.
After losing their opening match 37-13 to visitors, Ealing Trailfinders, Coventry have won three in a row at home but lost both away games.
It’s been a different story on their travels with defeats to Cinderford (36-31) and Rosslyn Park (27-15).
They have scored 21 tries (converting 17) and conceded 19 tries (including eight in the two away games).
The game kicks off at 3pm.
