ROCHFORD Hundred will be aiming for a 50th successive victory when they host Hertford tomorrow.

Rochford have won back-to-back promotions without losing a single fixture.

But prop forward Craig Strachan has played down the impressive achievement as Hundred look to rack up a half century of victories.

“Going 50 games unbeaten would be great but it is just a number to be honest about it,” said Strachan.

“If we do get to 50 we will be concentrating on getting 51 the week after because winning is a habit we don’t want to break.”

Rochford, who are now lining up in the London & SE Premier Division, have not been beaten since April 2017.

During that time, all 49 of their victories have come with additional bonus points for scoring four tries or more and in total the winning run has seen them score 2,717 points at an average of 55 points per game.

At the other end of the field, Hundred have conceded just 460 points at an average of just nine points per match.

But Strachan will not be getting carried away and is only focusing on what he believes will be another difficult afternoon at Magnolia Road this weekend.

“Hertford are very accustomed to this level so we are expecting a tough game against them,” said Strachan.

“They have quite a big pack so we’re expecting a physical game.”

Rochford head into the clash having beaten Tring 28-11 on the opening day of the season last weekend.

And Strachan was pleased to kick-off the new campaign in such fine fashion.

“It is always good to win the first game of the season so that was very pleasing for us,” said Strachan.

“But the fact that it took all 80 minutes to secure the bonus point let us know how hard the season will be in this league.

“The team know that we need to try and be at our best every minute of every game for us to be where we want to be by the end of the season.”

However, Strachan also feels it will take time before determining exactly what Rochford are able to achieve this term.

“With it being a new league it’s difficult to have too many specific goals at this stage,” said Strachan.

“But for the first five or six games we are just trying to secure as many league points as possible and evaluate our season goals from there.

“All we are thinking about right now is the game this weekend.”
