Rochford Hundred Rugby Club plotting to lift morale with win
ROCHFORD Hundred host bottom-of-the-table Beaconsfield in London One North tomorrow.
Hundred will keep faith with the side that drew 15-15 against Chingford last weekend.
And their first team manager Graham Pratt is hoping for a positive result.
“Beaconsfield are struggling down at the bottom of the league, as well as us, but that does not mean much at this level as our match against Basildon showed,” said Pratt.
“It is all down to which side wants it enough on the day, who keeps discipline under control and does not make elementary errors.
“We are confident that the balance of the side is almost there and a good win will knock up the confidence factor, which is perhaps what has been missing in recent games.”
Rochford go into the game third from bottom and will be desperate to climb further away from the foot of the table.
Basildon remain a place above Hundred in the standings but they face a tough test this weekend as they travel to league leaders Bury St Edmunds.
In London Three North East, second-placed South Woodham Ferrers host sixth-placed Upminster looking to bounce back from a shock defeat against Beccles.
Billericay are away to Old Cooperians in Essex One, while in Essex Two Stanford le Hope travel to struggling King’s Cross Steelers and Pegasus Palmerians entertain May & Baker.
