HIGH-FLYING Rochford Hundred bagged a 12-0 win at Guildford but skipper Harry Hudson was far from satisfied.

Rochford remain second in the London & SE Premier Division.

But Chris Green’s side are now three points below table-topping Wimbledon after failing to pick up a try scoring bonus point for the first time this season.

And Hudson was frustrated by the display.

“We’ve struggled to win territorial battles all year and quite frankly we could have dropped a bonus point against London Irish or against Tunbridge Wells,” said Hudson.

“We scored late against both of them but the weather was bad. We had to change our style to a more kicking way of play and we have struggled to do that.

However, a win is a win and we never looked like losing.

“That’s also two games in a row we have nilled someone so there are plenty of positives.

“But as a group it’s time to kick on, pardon the irony, or we will get ourselves into a dog fight in some games.

“Better to learn from a win than a loss is how I will sum that game up but we know we have to improve, starting with the very next game.”

Rochford were awarded a penalty try at the weekend while full-back Iain Meads also touched down as Hundred maintained their push for a third successive promotion.

But director of rugby Green felt the conditions made it tough to play.

“The weather was horrendous,” said Green.

“I know it wasn’t great here on Saturday but where we were it was just awful and it made it very difficult to play any rugby at all.

“We got the win and the attitude and effort was good so I can’t really complain.”

And Green still feels Rochford are well placed to win the title.

“We’re second at the moment but everything is still in our own hands right now and as long as that’s the case we can’t really moan,” said Green.

“We’ve been doing well and we have another home game on Saturday against CS Stags which we won’t be taking lightly, even though they have been struggling a bit.

“But first and foremost we are hoping for a better day weather wise so we can actually play some rugby rather than what happened on Saturday.”
