Head coach James Kerr will be looking for his Banbury Bulls side to make their mark in their first home game since going up.

Bulls entertain Grove in Saturday’s South West One East fixture at Bodicote Park where Kerr will be hoping for an error-free display.

We can play good rugby but we can’t afford to give possession away to these teams

Bulls eventually came out on top 25-24 in a fluctuating game at Chippenham, who came down from National League Three last season, to earn their first victory.

Kerr said: “We allowed them to get into the game because we made errors which they took advantage of. But we changed a few things around at halftime and made a really good start to the second half to go 22-10 ahead.

“We may have thought that was enough but Chippenham showed all their experience to get back into it. We started to chase the game when we were leading and then found ourselves trailing.

“We can play good rugby but we can’t afford to give possession away to these teams or else they will punish us. We’ve played two of the more fancied sides so far and done okay.

“Now we look forward to our first home game against Grove. But there is still plenty to work on in training.”
