TIGHT-HEAD prop Ewan Binneman has told his Westcliff team-mates to ignore Towcestrians’ lowly league placing ahead of tomorrow’s London & SE Premier Division clash.

Towcestrians sit bottom of the table following a miserable start to the season which has seen them lose eight of those nine matches.

But Binneman is taking nothing for granted this weekend.

“In this league anything can happen so it doesn’t matter if you’re playing a team at the top or a team at the bottom really,” said the 29-year-old.

“We need to make sure we go into this game like we do all the others.

“As far as I’m aware we have never played Towcestrians before but we are anticipating another tough game.”

Westcliff head into tomorrow’s clash on the back of three incredibly tough fixtures.

Rick Compton’s side faced a trio of top teams in succession and were beaten 39-33 by table-topping Tring last time out.

But Binneman feels Westcliff - who remain fifth in the table - have taken a lot from their testing run of matches.

“It’s been really hard preparing for games and teams that are at the top in consecutive weeks,” said Binneman.

“It takes a few days longer to get over knocks and regroup at training but it’s been a massive learning curve and I think it will do us good too.

“Overall it’s still been a great start.

“There have been a few bumps along the way but we’ve also beaten a team who were top of the table at the time.

“We’ve had some tough games but we need more wins to see off the first leg of the season on a high.”
