TEAM planning is currently taking place for our East Midlands Bowl match at Leicester on Friday July 28.
As announced on social media recently, we are delighted that club legend and recent World Cup star Chris Harris will be leading the side at Beaumont Park.
We also have 2010 title-winner and current team-mate of Harris at Rye House, Ben Barker, lined up along with James Sarjeant who is due to make his comeback from injury next week.
We are currently awaiting confirmation on two other riders, and when we receive those we will be able to slot two other names into place to ensure a competitive fixture.
The planned 2017 Coventry riders who subsequently signed for Leicester – Danny King, Josh Bates and Lasse Bjerre – will be racing for the Lions so that the home side track a line-up as close as possible to their regular SGB Premiership team, although they did unfortunately suffer some injuries in their match against Swindon on Monday.
