Coventry in double swoop for Rundle and Speight

Coventry Editorial 11th Jun, 2014 Updated: 28th Oct, 2016

COVENTRY have made their first signings of the summer after exciting wingers Dan Rundle and Samosini Speight moved to the Butts Park Arena.

Rundle joins from fellow National League One side Tynedale where he made 22 appearances last season scoring eight tries.

The 21-year-old started his career at Westoe where he spent two seasons before moving to Tyneldale and he has a reputation of scoring spectacular tries from deep.

Speight or ‘Sammy’ as he is more commonly known, joins Coventry from Championship side Bristol Shoguns.

An exponent in the sevens game for the British Army, Fijian-born Sammy has had experience in the 15-a-side game both for the Army and representing the Combined Services.

Now aged 28, Sammy’s spell at Bristol was disappointing despite a good pre-season but he has the potential to excite and thrill the Coventry public with his own brand of running rugby.
