Head coach James Kerr says there is no need to panic despite Banbury Bulls losing three of their four opening games.

Bulls entertain Newbury Blues in Saturday’s South West One East fixture at Bodicote Park where Kerr will be looking for his side to bounce back from last weekend’s heavy defeat at Maidenhead.

I’m disappointed that we didn’t come away with any points because we had our chances

Head coach James Kerr

Bulls crashed to a 38-0 defeat to a Maidenhead side who had the benefit of a couple of recent training sessions with England head coach Eddie Jones and Paul Gustard.

The pair were invited down to his local club by former England international Will Greenwood and their input helped Maidenhead to extend their 100 per cent record on Saturday.

But Kerr said: “There is no need to panic, we have only played four games and three of those have been away.

“Every game is going to be tough this season and Newbury Blues will be another difficult game on Saturday. The players have to remember that we have the individual talent but it’s the collective errors which are costing us points.”
