It was the 63rd minute before Cov scored again, another set-piece penalty try stretching their lead to 21-3.
Current methods have a limited detection window, largely because they do not fully utilize the CoV viral RNA in the sample.
A lacklustre third quarter came to life when Cov scored twice in the space of three minutes through White and Rob Knox, Fenner converting both tries, before Albanian broke to set up an unconverted try for Ross Parsons.
For the first 50 minutes Cov spent more time going sideways rather than forward - with the exception of the livewire Dom Lespierre - as they struggled to get behind Richmond's defence, and although the introduction of Harrison Lee-Everton at scrum-half and Scott Hamilton gave them more impetus and finally asked questions of Richmond, it wasn't enough.
Cov had to battle against the elements - into the strong head-on wind in the first period playing with pick-and-goes - a feature stressed by acting head coach, Dave Addleton.
A 30-metre penalty from Joe Carlisle put OEs ahead after 17 minutes before Cov struck twice in the space of three minutes.
What possession Students did have in the opening 40 minutes was largely in their own half and nullified by Cov's tackling, and although things did get a little better for them after the break with Cov disrupted by injuries to Tom Poole and Tom Preece and yellow cards for Cliffie Hodgson and Rob Knox, the visitors were back in control by the end as they sealed their win with two late scores.
Cov got their way into the game with a Matt Price try, converted by Matt Jones, from a line-out drive, but after an end-to-end passage of play, Cameron Hudson claimed Dale's third try which was again improved by Guy.
Cov's woes began inside the rst two minutes when centre Mark Hodgkiss suered a knee injury, and by the half hour they had lost both starting props, Andy Brown and Adam Parkins which, with hooker Matt Price in the sin bin, briey put Cov down to13 and led to a spell of uncontested scrums which only ended when Price returned and put himself forward to play out of position at prop.
Seals missed a penalty chance from 41 metres, and Cov pulled back to level terms on 20 minutes thanks to a penalty try when Park's Darren Fearn was yellow-carded for collapsing the maul as Cov drove over, with Caolan Ryan converting.
It took a try in the seventh minute of added time to deny Cov a 17th straight win but, in keeping with recent games here between the two, the drama continued to the last kick, with Rob Kirby, the division's second highest scorer behind Clif-ond Cliffie Hodgson, somehow squirting his conversion wide from in front of the posts.
Trailing 19-6 at the break, Cov twice forced their way back into the game with tries from line-out drives only to hand the initiative straight back to Albion with too many turnovers and missed tackles.
