It was supposed to be a joke but...

Truth is sometimes stranger than fiction and it seems like my meagre attempt at an April Fool's joke this year wasn't massively wide of the mark, with Wasps revealing this week that they are interested in the possibility of setting up a Super League club in Coventry.

With the RFL having already stated that it would listen any Super League club wanting to relocate its franchise, this does raise the possibility of an existing Super League club being sent to Coventry, with the sport extending it's northern power base in England south by 100 miles...
