A RAMPANT Rochford Hundred made it 50 wins in succession with a 35-7 victory against Hertford.

The triumph means Rochford have still not lost since April 2017.

And skipper Harry Hudson was keen to praise everyone involved.

“Winning 50 games in a row is a great achievement for the club, staff and players,” said Hudson.

“Credit must go to everyone who’s been a part of it, particularly players like Stuart Whatling, Steve Jay and Colonel (Matt Stewart) who have moved on now.

“I can’t imagine it happens that often so it’ll be something to look back on.

“But right now we’re already looking forward to the next one now and, as Craig Strachan said the other day, we’ll be looking to get to 51.”

Rochford have achieved back-to-back promotions during their lengthy unbeaten run and are now lining up in the London & SE Premier Division.

Saturday’s success was their second of the season.

But Hudson felt Hundred were not at their best.

“A win is a win but there is a lot more to come from this group,” said Hudson.

“Saying that, we’ve got 10 points out of 10 from the two games this season and I think we sit top of the league so we are happy with that.

“But, moving forward, we will be looking to put a performance together that represents our talent.”

Hudson, who was Rochford’s top try scorer last season, has also started the new campaign in fine style, touching down four times in the first two games.

However, he is not completely convinced by his early season form.

“I’m sceptical at the moment because I got off to a slow start last year and finished well,” said Hudson.

“Jamie Douglas got off to a flyer then didn’t score for half a year so I’m just hoping that doesn’t happen to me!”

Hudson touched down twice at the weekend while Craig Strachan, Iain Meads and Kieron Martin also scored during another dominant display.

Chris Dudman added four conversions while Cameron Greenhall added another as Rochford’s fine run continued.

All 50 of Hundred’s victories have also come with additional try scoring bonus points given when a team touches down at least four times during a game.

Rochford have now scored 2,752 in their 50 games, at an average of 62 points per game.

At the other end of the field, Hundred have conceded just 467 points at an average of just nine points per match.

Rochford will now be looking to keep their unbeaten run going when they head to Bedford Athletic, who have yet to pick up a point, this weekend.
