Bosworth beaten, bring on Oakham
9:00am Fri Feb 03, 2012
Newark Rugby Club first team captain Chris Tate believes his side can continue their high-flying form on Saturday as they take on third-placed Oakham, having last week dispatched second -placed Market Bosworth.
The side take on Oakham looking to build on their current run of 14 wins out of 14 in the Midlands 2 East (North) division and increase their lead over the chasing pack.
Currently Newark sit a comfortable 16 points above Bosworth and 18 ahead of Saturday's opponents in their quest for promotion, after a 19-3 win at Kelham Road at the weekend.
"Play like we did last weekend, this Saturday and it will be the exact same result," said Tate - who recorded his ninth try of the campaign against Bosworth.
"The players know that if we beat Oakham we will have a very healthy gap going into the final few games of the season.
"We trained hard for the match against Bosworth because we knew it was set to be our toughest test so far, and I think it couldn't have gone any better.
"They made it tough for us all over the park but eventually our fitness and quality shone through in the second period."
