Gale Street club were beaten 82-22 on Saturday

Barking forwards coach Andrew Moreland was content with the display from the team on Saturday, despite losing 82-22 at home to Haywards Heath in London Two South East.

The Gale Street outfit slipped to their eighth straight loss, though gave a dogged display at home.

When given the opportunity to attack, Barking looked dangerous going forward and that is something which Moreland is keen to see continue in their next game.

“The positive it that it is the most points we’ve scored this term and it’s close to a year since we last scored over 20 points in a game,” he said.

“For the opening 20 minutes or so, we kept the ball well and showed what we can do in attack.

“Hopefully the display adds to the confidence of the squad, but we know we have to work on our defence.”

With the result, Barking remain at the bottom of the table.
