Loan Watch: Championship Round Five


The weekly round-up of all the loan and dual-registered Trailfinders.

London Scottish 32-46 Coventry

There was just one player in loan action this weekend, as David Douglas Bridge started on the blindside for London Scottish as they faced Coventry at the Athletic Ground.

Coming into the game Coventry had been in reasonable form, with two wins over Ampthill and Bedford Blues, however the midlanders hadn’t beaten the Exiles at the RAG in the league for 24 years so it was always going to be an interesting encounter!

After 15 minutes the Exiles were 19-0 up, but the visitors responded well and went into the break 22-24 ahead. Although Scottish fought well throughout, Coventry pulled away in the last 20 minutes and ran out 32-46 winners.

Bridge worked tirelessly throughout the game, carrying well but also doing a lot of the unseen work on the floor and in defence.
