ROCHFORD Hundred will be looking to build on their first win of the season when they head to table-topping Worthing this weekend.

Hundred beat Canterbury 20-19 at Magnolia Road on Saturday.

And fly-half Sam Cappaert felt the victory showed Rochford are capable of competing at this level.

“The first win was massive for the team and as a club as a whole,” said Cappaert.

“From our first home game against Guernsey where we felt we had let ourselves down in terms of our performance it was great to get the result and put in a performance in front of the home crowd.

Canterbury“Moving forward we know we can compete at this level and convert our effort levels into results.”

Rochford now sit 13th in the standings and face a tough looking test at league leaders Worthing.

But Cappaert feels it is too early to be paying too much attention to the table.

“Every game in this league is going to be a tough battle,” said Cappaert.

“It’s early days to read too much into the table but Worthing are currently sitting top and have had some good results so we will have to come out firing from the start.

“But we’re looking forward to hopefully backing up the performance from last weekend.”

Rochford had been beaten in their opening three fixtures before Saturday’s success.

And Cappaert feels improvements are constantly being made.

“We had a tough start missing a few players through injury and with some new faces playing with each other for the first time,” said Cappaert.

“In all the games so far we’ve had some really good spells but understand these spells have to be sustained throughout the 80 minutes as mistakes at this level get capitalised on.

“But week by week the performances and training have really improved.”

And Cappaert is relishing being involved.

“I have known Danny (Cleare) for a few years and after speaking to him in the summer I felt everything that he said about Rochford’s ambitions in the National Leagues matched my own,” said Cappaert.

“I’m pleased to be here.”
