EWAN Binneman is confident Westcliff can recover from their slow start to the season.

Westcliff, who host Redruth this weekend, have been beaten in their opening six games of the National Two South campaign.

But Binneman still feels Westcliff can turn things around.

“It’s a long season so we will get used to the games and hopefully the bodies and fitness will come with that as well,” said Binneman.

“Match fitness makes a huge difference and If we can get one or two wins it will give us the confidence.”

However, Binneman knows there can be no hiding from Westcliff’s bad start.

“The results speak for themselves," said the prop forward.

“It’s been really tough on the new young guys coming through.”

And Westcliff have also been hit by a shortage of options.

“I think it's a bit of not having a big squad as we use to have and we’ve had injuries too,” said Binneman.

“At least two or three key players have been out on a regular basis every week and it's been tough.”

Westcliff will be looking to secure their first win of the season this weekend.

But second placed Redruth will be tough opponents having won all five of their matches to date.

“As far as I know we only played them once at home which we won at our old ground but that has been almost one and a half seasons ago,” said Binneman.

“Looking at their results so far it's going to be one hell of a game.

“If we stick to our game plan and play like we know we can it should be a interesting game to watch.
