Another Big Test
BARNES v CANTERBURY
Where we are in our journey, to be five points short at the final whistle against the top team in the league could be something for us to be happy with, but we’re not. Two relatively simple defensive errors from us early on gave Dorking a strong start and at a critical point in the second half when we were camped in the Dorking 22m we couldn’t convert enough of our chances into points. The higher we go the less chances we will have and the smaller the margin for error becomes. This is what we are working to change in our game and when we get it right, we will be the ruthless team we know we can be.
The last game of this block for the 1st XV, before we take a two week break, sees us travel to Barnes. Barnes are sitting in second place after only dropping points to Dorking and we know this will be another test. We have been focusing on increasing our accuracy this week and transferring the quality of our Thursday night training sessions into our Saturday afternoon performances
