Success is not always measured in wins and losses. Effort, hard work and resilience are the foundations to building for the long term.

Last season Rochdale put over 100 points past the 2’s in one game. So to lose 59-0 was a small step forward for this group of young and inexperienced rugby players. Even in defeat the 2’s felt a sense of achievement in making Rochdale work hard for their win.

For the 2’s it about realising what success means. Which will not always be winning games this season, but about reducing the score lines and having periods of competing with the opposition. Short term making mistakes will provide opportunities to learn and develop in the longer term plan to improve year on year to establish themselves at this entry level in the league.

The 2’s are at home next week to Aldwinians 4’s
