Barking director of rugby Andrew Moreland is looking forward to a break from London Three Essex action as they visit Fakenham in Senior Vase this weekend.

The Gale Street club make the trip to Norfolk on Saturday as they look to build on their recent victory against Kings Cross Steelers and progress into the next round.

“I’m looking forward to that trip away and looking forward to not having a game in the league,” Moreland said.

“We can work on the development on the team and progressing as a side which is the reason we have entered the cup this season.”

Ater a mixed start to the campaign in the league, Moreland is now keen for the side to repay the club with a long cup run this term.

“We want to go as far as we can in the cup,” he said.

“I think the club is due a good cup run as I can’t even remember the last time we had a good one. Not only do the players deserve a good run so does the club for all their hard work.”
