“We don’t want the season to fizzle out…….”

| 03/04/2017

Reflecting on Saturday’s match Albion head coach Simon Morrell said: “First and foremost it was a good game and we set out with the intention of being really competitive for the full 80 minutes, which we were and we were much improved in several areas from our game against Clevedon.

“Against a really tough and strong Drybrook team our defence was superb because we could easily have been blown away if we hadn’t been on our mettle, so even though we lost and got nothing out of it I felt we put in a good performance.

Simon went on: “We lost Shaun Mahoney early on which affected our line out after which we were always going to be up against it.

“It was hammer and tongs stuff with both teams going for each other. Drybrook had to work very hard to get their chances and would have come away thinking that was a proper tough game.

“It was pleasing that given the number of injuries we have suffered that we gave the sort of performance we did at Drybrook.

Looking ahead Simon said: “”This weekend we have got a very winnable game at home to Midsomer Norton after which we will travel to Matson for our final match of the season.

“We don’t want the season to fizzle out so we are targeting this game as one we want to win especially as there will be a big crowd with the Friends of Bridgwater Rugby Club holding a lunch beforehand.

Simon added: “If we can defend and play with the intensity we did at Drybrook then we will be fine and should get a good win.”

Albion’s final home match against Midsomer Norton gets underway at College Way at 3pm on Saturday.
