Gale Street club suffered 37-17 defeat at home in league on Saturday
Director of rugby Andrew Moreland again believes there are plenty of positives for Barking to take from a defeat after going down 37-17 at home to Old Alleynians in London Two South East.
It was the second-narrowest loss of the season for the Gale Street club, who have seen displays improve in recent weeks.
And despite still being on the lookout for that elusive first success of the campaign, Moreland was pleased with how the team fared against OA.
“It was another game where there were a lot of positives for us. There was a good atmosphere before the game around the club, which was great to see,” he said.
“We know where we need to work on: in defence and the wing areas especially, and to be better in our decision making in attack; however, we can still be happy with the display.
“Our defence has improved, which is given us a lot of confidence, and we’re scoring tries in every game, but we’re still desperate for that first win.”
