Canterbury Rugby Club coach Andy Pratt admits next few games are vital
Andy Pratt says Canterbury
Rugby Club’s next few games may go a long way to deciding their
National 2 South fate this season.
The city club aim to respond from
Saturday’s agonising 37-36 defeat at Clifton when they host
Taunton, who sit one point behind them, on Saturday.
They then travel to Launceston,
five points ahead of them, the following week before games against
bottom two, Barking and Lydney, during the festive period.
Canterbury are 10th but could have
gone to within a point of Clifton had they held on through the
final 10 minutes on Saturday.
Pratt (pictured) said: "The teams
around us in the table are always going to be tight games but these
next few results can dictate how our season goes.
"It’s important to get points
before Christmas and if you can pick up points away from home, then
so much the better."
New arrival Jesse Liston could
feature against Taunton (3pm) after the former Blackheath back row
returned from a spell in Australia seeking regular first team rugby
but David Devlin-Jones and Juan Del Val miss out.
