ROCHFORD Hundred are celebrating winning 40 league games in succession.

Hundred won London Two North East last season without losing a single game.

And Rochford are currently top of the London One North standings having won all 18 of their matches this term, much to the delight of their first team coach Michael Guess.

“The players, coaches and people behind the scenes have all worked extremely hard to make this season a successful and enjoyable one,” said Guess.

“We’ve carried on from last season but as a team and coaching staff we are always striving to get better, improve and challenge each other.

“But we’ve won every game with bonus points plus we have the best attack and defence in the league so from that point of view things couldn’t have gone any better.”

Rochford, who are pushing for back to back promotions, are currently nine points clear at the top of the table having impressed at both ends of the pitch.

Hundred have scored 1,117 points in their 18 outings while conceding just 144.

But Guess is still hungry for Rochford to improve.

“We still want to win the league first and foremost if we can do it with all bonus point wins that would be a great,” said Guess, who also lines up as a prop forward for Rochford.

“At the same time though we just want to keep getting better and improving and that’s certainly what we’re focusing on at the moment.

“We feel like if we do that then the results will continue to come.”

Rochford, who last lost in April 2017, were without a fixture last weekend.

But Guess felt that will also have worked in Hundred’s favour.

“I think it was good for everyone to have break,” said Guess.

“We only trained once last week and that was a spinning session in Clements Hall Leisure Centre, which I know was a big hit with all the boys.

“But we’re looking forward to getting back out there after having a bit of a rest which I felt was needed after a tough run of games.”

Rochford return to action with a trip to 11th placed Ruislip this weekend.

Hundred thrashed Ruislip 127-0 at Magnolia Road back in October.

But Guess is expecting a far tougher test on Saturday.

“We are expecting a tough game this weekend,” said Guess.

“We expect that every week really because when you’re sat at the top of the league everyone wants to beat you.

“But all we do is worry about what we can do and how we are going to play.

“Ruislip have picked up a few results coming into the second half on the season so we know this definitely won’t be an easy game.”

Improving Ruislip head into the game on the back of two wins, the first of which saw them thrash second from bottom Luton 100-0.
