WINGER Mitchell Bennett insists Rochford Hundred will still be hugely motivated to triumph tomorrow despite already having been crowned London Two North East champions.

The league leaders - who host second placed Sudbury at Magnolia Road tomorrow - have yet to be beaten this season.

And Bennett is keen to ensure the run of impressive results continues until the very end of the campaign.

“I believe we will still have very high motivation for this weekend as winning the league was only part of our goal for this season,” explained the winger.

“The next target is to go unbeaten this year in the league, which is something we are still striving for.

“We have two games left to play and we want to make sure we win them both, starting with Saturday.”

This weekend’s clash will be Rochford’s last game at home this season and will see them entertain second placed Sudbury.

Hundred began the campaign with a 40-29 win against the same opponents.

And Bennett is expecting another tricky test tomorrow.

“I honestly think the game this weekend will be our toughest of the season so far,” said Bennett,

“We will be playing against our strongest opponents with us having already won the league as well.

“But I think this game will show how much hard work we have put into this season.

“It will also show how dedicated we are to reaching above and beyond our season goals. “

Second placed Sudbury, who have played a match more than Rochford, will head into the game seven points behind their hosts having triumphed 18 times in their 21 matches.

But Bennett remains rightfully proud of what Rochford have already been able to achieve.

“I am very proud of Rochford this year,” said Bennett, whose tries have played a key part in the success.

“The squad have come together brilliantly and we are playing some outstanding rugby.

“I am proud to say I am part of such an excellent team.”

And Bennett has also relished his own part in the winning run.

“This season has completely changed my mind about playing rugby,” said Bennett.

“I’ve gone from not playing last season and not wanting to play, to absolutely loving rugby once again.

“Playing with close friends has re-lit my love for rugby and I’m really enjoying it again.”

Rochford will be presented with the league trophy after the game on Saturday.
