Coventry Bears rugby league are at home to South Wales Scorpions on the same day at the same venue kicking off at 3pm which doesn't leave much time after the football to re-mark the pitch and replace the goalposts after the football.

The 1645 game on the North Berks hop at Westminster would also be reachable after Coventry United.

Coventry United will also probably be at home on Sunday in the next round of the FA Vase if they beat Tipton as the Saturday also clashes with a Rugby Union match.

Shouldn't be too much of a problem - at today's game, the pitch already had both football and rugby markings on it!

You don't need local knowledge for an answer to that question, all you have to do is look at a map and work out roughly how long the walk would take. The two grounds are a fair distance apart though, and you would need to allow an hour or so between the two. I can say that with some confidence even though I've never lived in the Coventry area!

Agree with Chris.

Google maps will tell you it can be done easily on foot but a fair walk. I've done a similar walk from Cov station to the latter three times.

If you don't mind a long walk in the rain, you should get to Sphinx before kick-off. You will need some map reading skills though as Coventry is a maze. It is a shorter walk to GNP but they have no cover there, You could also get a train from Coventry to Canley.

Butts to Sphinx is 2.6 miles taking 53 mins according to google.

Agree about the place being a maze. Very confusing on my first trip to Sphinx Drive from station.

I'll be giving this a bash on the way back - Sphinx to station in 46 minutes is the targetCrazy
