WESTCLIFF will be bidding to bounce back from another painful setback when they host Redruth in National Two South tomorrow.

Westcliff led 14-5 and also missed two kickable penalties late on when suffering a narrow 19-17 defeat to Old Albanians last time out.

And Ewan Binneman, who bagged two tries in the loss, is eager to get back to winning ways this weekend.

“It was a very tough pill to swallow as we were the better team most of the game so we can’t wait to get back out there again,” he said.

“Obviously it is hard to keep going, especially losing in the manner we did and also having the chance to win it at the end.

“But we should have never been in that position anyway.”

Westcliff, who were promoted from the London & SE Premier Division last season, have now been beaten in 10 of their 11 outings this term.

And Binneman is expecting another tough test tomorrow against a Redruth side who sit sixth in the standings having won seven of their 11 matches so far this season.

“We know that it doesn’t matter if you play top half, mid or bottom half in this league as it will be tough but this Redruth team will be right up there with the toughest,” said Binneman.

“The good thing is they have to travel a long way and it might affect them.

“But we are preparing for another hard, physical game.”

However, Binneman remains confident Westcliff - who sit second from bottom in the table - can get the win.

“We will always back ourselves and that is what got us in this league in the first place,” said Binneman.

“So I am confident that we will turn the two or three point losses into much deserved wins.

“Hopefully that can start with a win tomorrow and we’ll be giving it everything we have.”

The game will also be the last the club hold before switching to their new clubhouse for the visit of Esher next month.
