Cov make bid for All Black Earl; RUGBY UNION.
Chairman Keith Fairbrother confirmed that he has been in discussion with Earl, who is currently at London One club Sudbury and spent the 1997-98 season as player-coach at Rugby Lions.
"We've talked to Andy, he has come and had a look at us, and more meetings will take place," said Fairbrother.
"We think he could be good for us - he's a great motivator who played 14 Tests for New Zealand, he has a modern approach to the game, and he hates losing!
"The Coventry job is a big one for one man, and we need a coaching team."
Winger Kurt Johnson scored his first hat-trick for Cov as they beat Henley on Saturday, 40-32, while Rugby Lions grabbed a lifeline in their fight for Premiership Two survival with a superb 21-15 win over third-placed Worcester - setting up a titanic tussle when the two local rivals meet at Coundon Road on Saturday.
