All eyes will be on Hereward College on Monday evening as Arden Griffins try to stop the Tile Hill Trojans roller-coaster in the top of the league tussle.
Trojans have won all their games so far and Griffins are their nearest rivals so a defeat here could prevent the Champions from retaining their title. Griffins were at home last night and destroyed Leamington Spartans while third-placed Aylesford Hawks were in impressive form when they defeated Ernesford Eagles earlier in the week but failed to arrive at Coventry College last night where the game was awarded 20-0.
Cracovia Stratford entertain local rivals JM Grizzlies tonight and in Division Two, leaders Rugby Rage – also unbeaten so far play host to Team Rebels who lost on Wednesday to Westwood Rhinos. Trojans 3 hit 5 from 12 free-shots in the frantic final three minutes before edging it over Nuneaton Predators.

CORPORATE GAMES SET TO RETURN TO COVENTRY…..
Phil John has been asked to assist with the organisation of the basketball tournament for the Corporate games which is returning to Coventry this August to be based at The XCEL Centre.The basketball games will be played on the 3rd and 4th of August and there will be two registration evenings on 1st and 2nd.
It is hoped to have between 8 and 10 teams in the competition, with the first day pool games and then
Play-offs on day 2 for places. There is also a need for 6 referees and 2 table officials on both days as it’s
the intention to use two courts each day. Also needed are at least one or maybe two administrators
to sort scores and monitor progress of games. Fees are yet to be fixed but would be line with the
usual officiating rates applying.
There is also a need to have 2 people at the registration evenings.
