ROCHFORD Hundred completed a second successive unbeaten season with a 43-0 win at Amersham & Chiltern.

Saturday’s victory made it 26 triumphs without a single defeat for Hundred this term.

And Rochford director of rugby Chris Green was delighted by the manner of the back-to-back league titles.

“It’s been good and of course I’m really proud of what we’ve achieved,” said Green.

“We’ve won the league titles bigger and better than anyone ever has before and that’s a fact.

“Being honest I did expect us to get the promotions but the manner in which we’ve done it is the most pleasing thing.

“We’ve won every single game and claimed every single bonus point along the way for two seasons in a row so we have to be pleased.”

And Green was also happy with the attitude his side showed in the final few fixtures having already been crowned league champions.

“The first objective was to win the league but we had others after that too which we wanted to achieve and we’ve done that,” said Green.

“The workrate and the attitude of the group has been great but we have to keep that going next season.”

Rochford will now be lining up in the London & SE Premier Division for the first time in their history next term.

But Green remains hungry for more success and is not ruling out a third successive promotion.

“We want to have another go and we’ll make no secret of our ambition,” said Green.

“We know there will be tougher competition from the teams we’re facing at that level but that’s what life’s about and we will welcome it.

“The best wins this season have been the hard fought ones, just like North Walsham away, and there will be harder games next year.

“We may lose some players but we’ll look to bring in three or four and go again.

“We also know that level well because most of us have been there and even higher before so we know what to expect.”

Rochford have now won 48 league matches in a row and have not tasted a single defeat since losing at Diss in April 2017.

Their latest success was another straight forward triumph on Saturday as they stopped Amersham scoring a single point.

In contrast, Rochford were able to bag seven tries with Sonny Gay and Jamie Douglas both claiming a brace.

Daniel Sowter, Sam Nash and Alfie Justice also touched down to ensure Rochford ended the campaign having scored 1,409 points.

They also boasted the league’s best defence having conceded just 261 points.
