Didn't they loan players a few weeks ago or are they new?
Yes it is an interview with some of the players who did the loan.
Cov players went the other way as well and played for Wasps A.
So they can loan players for one game? That seems open to abuse. Lets say you get to the last game of the season and need to win to go up, couldn't they load up the team?
By the looks of it yes, remember this is the sport where the governing body have no issues with teams moving round the country when it suits them!!
Helping CRFC or helping themselves by getting their fringe players competitive games.
You just gotta love those good guys wasps...

Why would anyone want to start a thread like this? Strange.
I did think it was a bit weird to start just after a decent result.
I didn't realise the loan system was systematic helping of another club, and was worthy of a Telegraph piece.
I must have missed all the other pieces about each club that has loaned CCFC a player and how they have helped us.
Still when I read something like this from Simon, I realise what utter shit the Telegraph can peddle.
In his defence, welcome to the world of local 'journalism'!
My friend quit his career when he was asked to dress as a tramp, and knock on vicars' doors asking for money...
Really? To try and see if they gave him any?
It's true though, isn't just the telegraph. It is more content writing than Journalism.
Hasten to add it wasn't a Coventry paper btw!
It popped up as an article when I was looking on the telegraph web site.
I was not aware that the two clubs were sharing players which personally I thought was interesting.
Checked to see if it was old news on the Wasps thread and didn't see anything about it so posted it on there, in case anybody else was surprised.
I will ensure the next time I post anything on the Wasps thread I will only do it when we lose.
Not sure what exactly that has to do with anything but I will keep it in mind anyway.

Maybe my memory is playing tricks on me, but I am sure in the late 80's as I delivered said rag along the streets of Cheylesmore, that it didn't peddle such utter shite.
Telegraph was always relatively good quality for a local paper, tbf to it.
Budget cuts though, meaning less staff, meaning those left have to come up with turgid shite to fill the paper, without the time or resource to do better.
Am sure off the record the journalists would agree, but not like they can in public, is it. Never done anything you'd rather not, because somebody pays your bills?
I never saw that in the wasps forum.
I note no one found it a strange thread to create.
Not quite losing my marbles yet then?
Done a few things I thought oops afterwards. Thankfully I worked for someone with a sense of humour, (although the organisation I worked for didn't have) and we worked through these episodes
Absolutely. What it really means is that the paper starts to rely on republishing PR pieces verbatim along with things to encourage their advertisers. I don't think the problem with the CET is with the individual journalists...
Again I hasten to add that it ain't a Coventry paper but I remember one press release I wrote, where a local paper kindly *added* some typos after I sent it, even though the content stayed the same!
Don't get me going on the standard of journalism these days.
I get the idea no one ever checks the content, they publish on the web site & fix the errors it if someone notices.
You often see quite basic grammar and spelling mistakes and occasionally malapropisms.
Sometimes they use 'and' twice in the same sentence too.
But yes, joking aside, proof reading on the CET isn't wot it waz. Streching the 'pennis' being a case in point.
You even get it on the straplines of BBC rolling news.
Separate names with a comma.
