ADAM Ferrier insists Rochford Hundred will not be getting carried away following their vital 12-3 win over title rivals Wimbledon.

The victory at Magnolia Road kept Hundred a point clear at the top of the London & SE Premier Division standings.

But Ferrier, who was among Rochford’s try scorers, knows Hundred are still fully aware of the hard work still ahead of them.

“It’s more important now than ever to stay focused on the business end of the season,” said Ferrier.

“After beating both Guernsey and Wimbledon it could be easy to sit back thinking the job’s done.

“But I know myself and the team don’t feel that way and we are more motivated than ever to put the best performances together for the remaining seven games.”

Skipper Harry Hudson also scored a try for Rochford at the weekend while Cameron Greenhall added a conversion.

But, despite being delighted by the result, Ferrier did not feel Rochford were at their best at the weekend.

“It was a very frustrating game in parts,” said Ferrier.

“We weren’t really firing on all cylinders and definitely left a few tries out there which is annoying as we could have done with the five points.

“But beating Wimbledon is never going to be an easy feat so I’m over the moon with the result.

“The team and staff were on a massive high after the game and all the hard work we’ve put in has been well worth it.

“But we know there’s even more hard work ahead.”

Rochford remain a point clear of second placed Guernsey and nine points clear of third placed Wimbledon who still have a game in hand.

Hundred, who are chasing a third successive promotion, face five of the bottom six in their remaining matches with their toughest looking coming at home to fourth placed Dorking in March.

>In London One South, Thurrock won 46-17 at Horsham to remain ninth in the standings.

In London Two North East, South Woodham Ferrers won 34-24 at Holt while in London Three Essex bottom of the table Basildon were beaten 31-10 at home to sixth placed Kings Cross Steelers.

In Essex One, there were home wins for both Canvey Island and Billericay.

Second placed Canvey saw off Millwall 49-5 and remain 10 points behind table-topping Dagenham.

Billericay beat Writtle Wanderers 24-7 and are now third.
