Coventry RFC erased memories of seven days earlier with a good, solid performance which saw them gain their first ever win over Old Albanian.
In front of another good-sized crowd, of 1,199, a good start was important and Coventry duly delivered.
After OA had twice knocked on, Cov took a lead on five minutes which they were never to lose.
An excellent home scrum, which was to become a feature of the afternoon, saw Jacques Le Roux break off.
Luke Myring and Barry Davies continued the move before Will Hurrell finished it off in the left hand corner, just too wide out for Cliffie Hodgson’s attempted conversion.
Old Albanian then struck on 13 minutes, fly half Rayner slotting a 35-metre well-struck penalty.
Cov though were soon back on the offensive, three phases taking play to just outside the visiting 22 for Hodgson to land a 28 metre penalty.
Old Albanian worked a pass to winger May, who cut in from the wing to sprint over for Rayner’s easy conversion.
On 31 minutes Coventry scored a great team try, with Lewis Barker breaking in his own 22 with a quick tap penalty before linking with Mark Kohler.
As the moves progressed through phases running well into double figures, eventually Cov found themselves in their visitors 22, the final move left sending Will Hurrell in for his second try and seventh of the season.
A quite superb sequence of play, suitably finished off by Cliffie Hodgson’s conversion for 18 -10.
After the break, Hodgson finally putting the seal on the win with two further penalties on 66 and 74 minutes.
Coventry: Hodgson, Kohler, Davies, Myring, Hurrell, Jones, Barker, Hobbs (Darkintis), Locke ( Price), Ryan, Poole, Morgan, Tibbatts (capt), Munro, Le Roux (Daynes (Evans)).
