Head coach James Kerr is looking for Banbury Bulls to make progress in this weekend’s RFU Intermediate Cup tie with Camp Hill.

Bulls go into Saturday’s second round tie at Bodicote Park on the back of their seventh win of the Midlands Two West South campaign, a derby demolition of Leamington which sees them lead the way by three points from title rivals Berkswell & Balsall.

We knew we had the capability with ball in hand

Head coach James Kerr

The Warwickshire outfit are fourth in Midlands Two West North ahead of Saturday’s tie and Kerr is expecting a tough test.

He said: “It would be nice to have a good cup run, we’ve got a strong squad so I’m all for doing well in the competition.

“It doesn’t matter who we play it’s about our game. There are one or two areas where we need to improve.”

Looking back on Saturday’s victory, Kerr added: “All in all, it was a comfortable victory. They put us under a bit of pressure at the start but we were phenomenal in defence to keep Leamington out.

“The boys were ruthless in defence and once we broke their backs we could start scoring tries.

“We knew we had the capability with ball in hand. I would have preferred not to have conceded the late points but it’s difficult to keep that level up for 80 minutes.”
