OUR victory over Moseley was our 17th consecutive win in all competitions, which signals how well our young side have done.

We’ve faced some tough trips during the first half of the campaign and visited teams like Rotherham Titans and London Scottish at grounds where away teams always seem to struggle.

Apart from our opening match, we’ve come out on top in all of those encounters and that has given this side great confidence going forward.

We’ve come a long way since the opening day of this season. We weren’t the finished article in the autumn and we still aren’t now but our progression has been clear for everyone to see.

It is important that we continue our momentum and hit the top of our form during the last few weeks of May, when the outcome of the campaign is decided once and for all.

The game itself against Moseley was a lively clash and we produced one of our most comprehensive all-round team performances to date.

It was the fourth time we’ve played Moseley this season and we certainly saved our best showing till last.

Our driving maul was virtually unstoppable. Sam Betty will get a lot of credit for his hat-trick, and deservedly so, but the whole forward pack must be congratulated for their dominance.

Not only were we fantastic going forward, but we also looked solid defensively and we will take a lot from that.

Sam is actually our top try-scorer now with 11 from ten games. It’s remarkable when you learn he’d only scored three tries in his previous three seasons!

This weekend we face Pontypridd in the B&I Cup quarter-final and we are expecting the Welsh side to come with an army of support.

Pontypridd have won every one of their league games this season and were only narrowly defeated by Bristol in the pool stages of the B&I.

With a place in the semi-finals at stake, you will certainly see two passionate teams looking to make their mark in the competition.

On the international front, all the players were delighted to see Chris Pennell called-up to the England Saxons squad.

Chris had an outstanding season last time out and is on his way back to top form after recovering from an injury set-back at the start of the season.

The call-up really does show that if you are playing well and have ability to be an international player, you won’t be overlooked just because you are playing in the Championship.

Chris has been a real stand-out performer and he will be a key player for us in the latter stages of the campaign.
