ROCHFORD Hundred are the country’s most in-form rugby team after carrying on their unbeaten start to the season on Saturday.

Hundred thrashed Old Priorians 97-0 in London One North at Magnolia Road to make it 11 wins in a row this term.

And Rochford are now the only team in the country to have hit the maximum number of 60 points without having been beaten, much to the delight of first team coach Michael Guess.

“It’s lovely to hear something like that but it’s down to a lot of hard work from a lot of people,” said Guess.

“The coaches all work very hard and so do the players to reach these kind of levels.

“On average we’re now scoring 61.5 points per game and we’re only conceding 6.9 so we’re obviously pleased with how it’s going.

“But we’re all fully aware it’s still early on in the season and there’s a long way to go for us to achieve our target of promotion.”

Rochford remain eight points clear at the top of the table and were rarely troubled at the weekend.

Winger Norbertas Radzevicius bagged four tries in the convincing victory, while skipper Harry Hudson bagged another hat-trick.

Will Ferrier, Sam Fombo and Matt Stewart all scored two tries each while Mark Billings and Ricki Gould also touched down.

And Guess was thrilled to pick up another win.

“It was pleasing to get 97 points and another victory,” said Guess.

“Old Priorians were down to 13 men at one point and when that happens it almost becomes a training session in all honestly.

“But we’ve got the maximum five points from the game and that’s what we always look to do.

“There are things we still need to look at and improve but that’s the level we set ourselves.”

Rochford won London Two North East last season without losing a single game and are now well set to secure a second successive promotion.

Rochford will now be looking to make it 12 wins in a row when they visit fifth-placed Old Haberdashers this weekend.

The week after sees Hundred hosting local rivals Southend in their final outing of 2018.
