RUGBY: Rochford Hundred are eager to improve during the remainder of the National Two South season, according to full-back Chris Dudman.

Hundred head into Saturday’s home game with Barnstaple sitting 14th in the 16 team table.

But Dudman will be looking to get back to winning ways this weekend.

“Barnstaple will be a tough game but we are targeting them for the win and they will certainly be aiming to do the same to us,” said Dudman.

“But we know we want to see an improvement coming into the last stretch of the season.

“It’s been a big learning curve being in National Two and I think the team will be able to take a lot of experience from it.”

Barnstaple are just below Rochford in the table but both sides will still be at this level next season.

No teams will be relegated from National Two South this term but Dudman does not feel that is making a difference to the matches.

“Personally I don’t think the fact there is no relegation has made much of an impact,” said Dudman.

“Every game has been really competitive whether it’s been top of the league or the bottom.”

Rochford have now been beaten in their five games and will head into tomorrow’s game after losing 53-32 at Dings Crusaders last time out.

"The game against Dings was a unique on," said Dudman.

"But with them having the artificial pitch it certainly opens the game up a lot more and gives teams more of an opportunity to chuck the ball about."

Elsewhere in National Two South tomorrow, bottom of the table Westcliff host second placed Clifton at the Gables.
