Head coach James Kerr will be looking for a positive response when Banbury Bulls entertain Swindon on Saturday.

Bulls go into Saturday’s penultimate home South West One East fixture on the back of a disappointing performance at Royal Wootton Bassett.

We’ll be working hard in training this week to put right the wrongs from last Saturday

Head coach James Kerr

Despite getting off to a great start at Wootton Bassett, Bulls lost their way and allowed the hosts to dominate proceedings before coming back strongly towards the end.

Kerr said: “We started really well but for the middle hour of the game our display was awful. We didn’t have any ball carriers and allowed Wootton Bassett to make the same attack time after time.

“They were a decent side but our intensity levels dropped off after scoring the first try. We came back strongly in the closing stages and scored two good tries but it was a case of too little, too late.

“The players, as well as the coaching staff, were disappointed afterwards, they knew it was a game we should have won. We’ll be working hard in training this week to put right the wrongs from last Saturday.”

Skipper Ian Isham is unavailable for Saturday’s game at Bodicote Park and Matt Goode is a doubt after picking up a back injury but Josh Deegan should be back in contention.
