Coomber aiming to go one step further against Bramley
Team manager Martyn Coomber is hoping to build on last week's performance against Hemel Stags when Bramley Buffaloes visit Blackwood on Saturday.
The Hornets are at home again although a potential reversal of the fixture had been mooted should there continue to be rainfall this week, but Coomber is confident that the match will go ahead as arranged.
“We’ve been in regular discussion with Blackwood RFC and the pitch is decent condition,” he said.
“Due to two previous fixtures being postponed because of the weather, we’ve had to be diligent in our preparations – hence the proposal to play the match at Bramley should conditions worsen – but thankfully doesn’t look necessary.
“We’ll be at home this weekend and aiming to build on last week’s performance against Hemel.”
The Hornets embark on a sequence of games that sees three of their next four at home, against teams that sit around them in the league.
Having seen his side push league leaders Hemel Stags all the way last Saturday, Coomber is hoping to go one better this time around.
“It’s important that we don’t let last week to go waste,” he continued, adding: “We talked about how certain facets of our game have improved and what we need to improve most is our position in the league.
“Most people would have seen that Hemel had travelled with a strong side, seen the result, and presumed that we must have had a few dual-registered boys in to get so close – but that wasn’t the case.
“Everyone that played – except for Kristian Hawkes who has been away with Wales Students – had been involved in the defeats to Kippax and Warrington, which shows just what we can be capable of.
"This run of home games should address those tough weeks on the road and see us back to winning ways."
