Banbury Bulls head coach James Kerr is frustrated by the stop-start season his side is having in Midlands Two West South.

Bulls emerged 32-17 victors at Droitwich on Saturday despite having to endure a frustrating first half when they struggled to get to grip with the conditions. Bulls earned their bonus-point victory much to Kerr’s satisfaction but face another blank weekend because of the World Cup final.

It’s been a bit disjointed for us to get some continuity

Head coach James Kerr

Kerr said: “It’s been a bit disjointed for us this season and difficult to get some continuity, having twice had a week off through a bye in the cup and one in the league already.

“But there are still things for us to work on in training, we are allowing sides to slow us down and that was the case at Droitwich. It wasn’t until the second half that we kept the ball in hand and ran in some great tries.

“It was a good to get a bonus point win away from home, especially playing for the first time in wet conditions.

“We were strong in the set-piece, scrum and line-out but they were effective at the breakdown in the first half.”
