STUART Whatling felt it was a case of ‘job done’ for Southend Saxons at Saffron Walden.

Saxons made it three wins in a row with a hard-fought 43-24 triumph.

And Whatling was pleased to keep the good run going.

“It was a case of job done for us,” said Whatling.

“A bonus point win away from home is always a good outcome.

“We were happy with parts of our game but equally unhappy with the tries that we conceded.”

John Kenward and Jack MacVeigh both scored two tries for Southend while Tom Ramsey, Blue Newton and Chris Vaughan also touched down.

But Whatling knows there is still plenty to work on.

“It was another step in the right direction but there’s still huge amounts for us to improve on,” said Whatling.

“We have the ability to score tries from all over the park but defensively we have to be a lot better than we were on Saturday.

“We'll make sure that we raise our level in that area this week and into Norwich on Saturday.”

Southend will go into that game sitting third in the Regional Two Anglia standings.

But Whatling is not looking too far ahead.

“We're not setting our sights too far this season,” said Whatling.

“We are ambitious and confident that we will have a successful season but our main focus is to make sure that we are relentless in bringing the best version of ourselves every week and then the results will take care of themselves.”
