ROCHFORD Hundred will be looking to kick on after securing their first ever away win at National Two South level.

Rochford, who host Dings Crusaders tomorrow, triumphed 22-21 at Old Albanians last time out.

And Hundred’s head coach Danny Cleare was delighted with the victory.

“To get the win against such a well established National League club and one with a Saracens link was particularly pleasing,” said Cleare.

“It was also a massive moment for the club to achieve their first away win at this level and it has certainly given us confidence to push on and establish ourselves at this level.”

The victory pushed Rochford up to 13th in the standings.

But Cleare feels Hundred are now getting to grips with their new level.

“We’ve had a tough start playing a lot of teams in the top half and we have held our own even in defeat,” said Cleare.

“But in the last three games we have won two, and in the loss we took Worthing to the wire and they’re currently sitting top of the league.

“So we know we’re moving in the right direction.”

Rochford will again be looking to show that against sixth placed Dings Crusaders at Magnolia Road tomorrow.

But Cleare is expecting another tough test.

“I’ve watched a few videos of Dings and they have their traditional big pack,” said Cleare.

“They love to catch and drive from anywhere on the pitch and they back their scrum so they will be tough up front.

“They do also possess a lively little nine, a very good 12 and a 15 that counter attacks if given the space.

“So it’s going to be a battle but one we’re looking to meet on head on.”
