Head coach Matt Goode will be hoping Sunday’s Oxon Knockout Cup success can boost Banbury Bulls for next weekend’s trip to Swindon.
Pete Boulton bagged a brace of tries as the holders beat last season’s beaten finalists Oxford University Greyhounds 50-27 to book their place in the last four.
I’m very happy with the win, you’ve got to be when you score 50 pointsBulls head coach Matt Goode
Goode said: “I’m very happy with the win, you’ve got to be when you score 50 points. We missed a couple opportunities and we gave them lots, but I think overall to get a good win and get some young boys out playing decent rugby is good.
“We’ve got really good strength in depth and the players that came in have given a really good performance.
“The league is the league but the cup is a totally different ball game. You only get one chance and we knew that, we had a game plan and focused on that.
“The win will definitely lift the boys which we can take into training on Tuesday and Thursday before the game against Swindon.”
