SOUTHEND Saxons will be looking to stay on the front foot when they head to Chelmsford tomorrow.

Saxons top the Regional Two Anglia table having won their last 15 matches.

And flanker Stuart Whatling is eager for that run to continue after Saturday’s impressive 83-17 win against Dagenham.

“It was probably our best attacking performance of the season,” said Whatling.

“We aimed to play with pace and tempo and we did that.

“There were some moments of inaccuracy but our intent was great.

“Defensively we conceded a couple of soft tries but that can happen when the game is as high tempo as it was and we know the fixes for those. “

But Whatling feels eighth placed Chelmsford will be a tough side to beat.

“Chelmsford always present a threat,” said Whatling.

“They'll be well organised and armed with a plan to derail us.

“We're yet to put our best performance out against them in recent seasons so we want to make sure we do that and if we do, the result will take care of itself.”

Saxons will be making the short trip in a confident frame of mind.

But Whatling stressed there is still plenty of hard work to be done.

"We have gained a lot of confidence winning 15 in a row but it counts for nothing if you don't turn up at the business end of the season which we experienced last year," said Whatling.

"The next month is huge for us.

"We've worked hard to get where we are but we know it is crunch time now and we're ready to deliver."

Elsewhere this weekend, bottom of the table Westcliff go to sixth placed Oundle in Regional One South while second from bottom Rochford Hundred host fourth placed Harpenden.

In Counties Two Essex (South), table-topping Basildon head to sixth placed Millwall, third placed Billericay head to bottom of the table Barking while fifth placed Canvey Island go to second placed Old Brentwoods.
