EVERYBODY at Worcester Wolves is raring to go for the rest of the season following a weekend without any games.

We have seven matches left before the play-offs and the aim now is trying to make sure that everyone is firing on all cylinders for that task.

It has been a normal week of practice and we have stayed on top of what we’ve been doing in terms of the new offensive sets we have been introducing.

At this stage, it is important all the players are on top of their game and understand what they need to do both offensively and defensively.

All of our remaining fixtures should be good and exciting but also tough matches, starting at Leeds Force tomorrow (7.30pm) before travelling to London Lions on Sunday (4pm).

We also still have to face Newcastle Eagles, Leicester Riders twice and Glasgow Rocks.

Some of those teams we could potentially face at some stage in the play-offs so it’s going to be quite interesting to see how we play against those teams and what we need to do well to win.

We are looking at who we could come up against so there’s a lot of work going on behind the scenes as well as on the court and everyone is geared up to make sure we’re the best we can possibly be by the play-offs.

Last Sunday saw league leaders Newcastle win the British League Trophy, having already won the BBL Cup.

They have been a bit of a machine this year and have played exceptionally well. However, we’ve managed to put a game-plan together twice this season to beat them by taking them out of their comfort zone and doing things differently so that they couldn’t just have things their own way.

As well as beating them in the play-off final last May, we have beaten them twice in the league which is great. I know that when we play them at the University Arena on Good Friday they will have circled that date to come and prove a point.

I find it exciting playing Newcastle and teams like that because it’s always a challenge between the players and the coaches, as well as the strategy.

We seem to have had the right game-plan this season and as a team we have played well on those occasions.

They are an intimidating and aggressive team and I think a lot of teams play Newcastle and they’re 10 points down before they start.
