TODD Bailey is hopeful the conditions will work in Rochford Hundred’s favour at Hinckley tomorrow.

Rochford go into the National Two South clash sitting 14th in the table, two places below their hosts.

But Bailey is confident Hundred can come out on top.

“The game tomorrow will be largely down to the conditions,” said Bailey.

“It is meant to be freezing cold and raining, which as grim as it is playing in those conditions, it means the forwards can stick it up the jumper and keep the ball, which we usually thrive on.

“Therefore I am confident we can get the result against Hinckley.”

Rochford were beaten 37-15 at Henley last time out and Bailey remains disappointed by the defeat.

“It was extremely frustrating last week, made even more so by the fact that we are able to score great tries such as the one after half time where we played out from our own half," said Bailey.

“However we didn’t get the chance to do this as we didn’t have the ball.

“The penalty count was outrageous, and Henley are well drilled outfit who punished us for that.”

Elsewhere in National Two South tomorrow, bottom of the table Westcliff host 10th placed Bury St Edmunds.

In London Two North East, winless South Woodham Ferrers host Saffron Walden while in London Three Essex, Canvey Island are at home to Romford.

In Essex One, table topping Billericay host second placed Maldon and Basildon, who are fifth, host eighth placed Clacton.
