08.02- Cambridge (away) – Match Report & Highlights
We will keep you updated with any changes due to the potential weather as Storm Dennis approaches.
Jonathan Keep and Matt Talaese provide their thoughts ahead of Saturday.
The squad is largely unchanged with only a few positional tweaks from last week.
We know that it will be a huge challenge against Birmingham who are still trying to maintain asmuch pressure on Rotherham as they can and will be fighting for every point as we are.
A win for us will see us getting ever nearer to the 62 points we achieved last season which saw us safe for another season at National One.
It’s hard to believe that we are already down to our final 4 fixtures of theseason here at the CorpAcq Stadium, which has seen us build an impressive record for the season to date of 11 fixtures, winning 8 and losing only 3 to Cinderford, Rosslyn Park and Rams.
In those games to date we have amassed a total of 38 of our 53 league points, so we are looking forward to another challenge today here and receiving the cheer of the 16th man from our supporters as always to get us over the line!
On the flip side to the above, our form away from home continues to be poor, with another loss away to Cambridge last week in a fixture that we all came away from feeling somewhat frustrated that we didn’t take the full 5 points that were on offer.
The common theme in these fixtures is that we seem to play some great rugby for 50-60 minutesout of the 80 and fall away for the remainder. This is something that we are conscious of andworking on to improve by any small margin to give ourselves the best chance on away days
Matt Talaese gives his thoughts after picking up his second try for the club, his first away from home:
It was just a humble pick and go, but all credit has to go to the brothers who got us down to the right area of the field!
Returning home, we know what needs to be done. The management have given us the plan, we just need to execute.
