Essex One leaders secured another victory

May & Baker captain Andy Yarrow hopes the bit of arrogance that had slipped into their game will be gone when they face Writtle in Essex One this weekend.

Yarrow and his team-mates made it six wins out of six with a 30-6 success over East London on Saturday.

However, the league leaders were given their toughest match of the season and the Bakers skipper hopes it proves to be the warning they needed ahead of hosting Writtle.

“A bit of arrogance has been creeping into performances,” said Yarrow.

“But against East London we were in a real arm wrestle, so I’m hoping that will be our warning.

“I don’t think we can allow ourselves to be less prepared because we are facing a team near the bottom.

“We need to prepare like we are playing Dagenham or Upper Clapton because getting bonus points is important.”

Bakers managed to get another bonus-point win last weekend against East London.

Yarrow went over for a try alongside Josh Cook, Marc Tindall, Fred Morrison and Dan Stanbridge.

And he was pleased with the test they got, adding: “They’re probably the toughest side we have played.

“The main thing is that we keep ticking over and getting the results on the board.”
