HARRY Hudson insists Rochford Hundred cannot wait for their table-topping clash with Colchester this weekend.

Rochford have triumphed in all 19 of their London One North games this season and are currently nine points clear of second placed Colchester.

But Hudson, who tops Hundred’s try scoring charts this term, is keen to extend that gap with another win on Saturday.

“We’re excited for every game but everyone apart from Dougy (Jamie Douglas) has had this one circled since the turn of the year,” said Hudson.

“They’re a big abrasive pack who enjoy scrummaging and have a few exciting backs to watch with ball in hand so it will be a hard game.

“It will be a physical encounter too but one we look forward to.

“It’s been our goal to go undefeated all year but our first goal is to get promoted and this game will put us a step closer to that.”

Colchester have won 18 of their 19 games so far this season, with their only defeat coming against Rochford back in October.

Hundred triumphed 27-10 that afternoon and have been in fine form all season.

Rochford have scored 1,185 points in their 19 games while conceding just 154 to give them the best attack and defence in the division.

Last time out, Rochford won 68-10 at Ruislip.

And Hudson was happy to record another victory.

“It was a good for us,” said Hudson.

“Ruislip have progressed massively since the first time we played them.

“The wind was a factor and we dropped off in the second half.

“But there were some nice tries scored and some good sets we were pleased about.

“We have high standards though and we want to keep them going, starting with the game on Saturday.”

Rochford won London Two North East without losing last season and are now looking to go through a second successive campaign without defeat.

However, their unbeaten record could come under threat in the next fortnight with Saturday’s clash with second placed Colchester being followed by a game against North Walsham, who are currently third.

Also in London One North this weekend, Southend Saxons will be confident of getting back on track when they host bottom of the table Diss at Warners Bridge.

Southend lost 35-32 at Fullerians last weekend.
