Gale Street club beaten 92-0 at home on Saturday

New Barking director of rugby Andrew Moreland remained upbeat despite seeing his side lose 92-0 at home to Horsham in London Two South East on Saturday.

The Gale Street club started 2018 with a home defeat and were unable to get on the scoreboard.

Moreland, who recently stepped up from his role as forwards coach, was keen to take the plus points, though, and is happy with the spirit in the camp despite the run of results.

“The score is obviously not what we wanted, but it doesn’t show how positive we are as a group about the future of the club,” he said.

“The first 20 minutes was probably the best that we have played all season.

“We were camped in their 22 for a long spell, so we know we need to work on our attack.

“To have the team third in the table worried, though, is a real achievement. Now, we just have to work on our fitness and the first up tackles.”
