SOME of you might be worried to hear we hit the rocks this week — but it was purely in a fun sense and we all had a great time.

It was nice to come in for work on a morning to be told we would be going rock-climbing instead of rugby training.

I am not too sure rock-climbing is a sport that I will ever excel at — but Charlie Mulchrone showed he is something akin to Spiderman.

The forwards are probably not made for rock-climbing but Charlie scaled new heights in our session at Vertical Limit Indoor Rock Climbing in Worcester’s Shrub Hill Road.

We have had another great week as we prepare for Saturday’s trip to Jersey and I was very proud to see the boys get past Leinster ‘A’ in the semi-finals of the British and Irish Cup.

A few of our young lads put up their hands with good performances against a settled and talented Leinster team.

The whole of our forward pack scrummed and mauled well and that proved the difference because it allowed us to play in Leinster’s half and apply pressure.

Perry Humphreys got the praise for an excellent match-clinching try but there was a lot of hard work from the guys in front of him.

The boys will now meet Doncaster in the final on Good Friday. Doncaster are a decent side so it’s going to be a true test and they will also have home advantage. I will be travelling to the final and supporting the boys and I hope Warriors fans will turn out in force.

Saturday will be my first trip to Jersey, who fought back from 17 points down only to lose 32-29 when we played them at Sixways earlier in the season. Our discipline was poor that night.

Jersey thrive on achieving field position and have conceded only 15 tries on their home patch.

It’s never easy to play in Jersey and, from what I have heard, the conditions could be windy and the ground is next to the airport.

It’s going to tough and we know we will have to hold on to the ball and get good field position.

We were quite a way off par in our last league match against Plymouth Albion. A few changes are likely to be made from that side and, hopefully, we can step up.

I am a huge cricket fan and I am getting excited about the sound of leather on willow at New Road.

Chris Pennell, Mike Williams and I were lucky enough to be invited to train with the young Worcestershire players at Malvern.

I thoroughly enjoyed it and, hopefully, we will be going back soon. It was nice to strap on the pads and hit a few deliveries.
