"We'll be up for Lichfield test" says Drew

Ben Tyler 11th Oct, 2019

ADAM Drew is looking forward to the test presented by visiting side Lichfield on Saturday (3pm) on the back of Droitwich’s 43-19 win away at Kidderminster.

A hat-trick by Cooper Bent, two tries from Nico Mason and one apiece from Chris Hooper and Phil Horton put Droitwich in control of the Midlands One West contest. Victory sent the Monners up to eighth place as a result.

Despite the convincing scoreline, Drew felt his side were below their usual standard.

“I was pleased with the ruthlessness, although we didn’t play very well,” said the Droitwich director of rugby.

“If we play a team below the top level, we always seem to play to a lower level ourselves.

“We made quite a few errors, but we managed to come out with the win.

“To be fair, I think the team across the board were consistent. In our general play we did very well. It would be unfair to single out anyone in particular.”

The Monners chief views the challenge at the Glyn Mitchell Memorial Ground on Saturday as another good measure of the quality of his side – especially with several first team players missing.

“We’re under no illusions who the good sides in this league are,” said Drew.

“But what we’ve learned against the better teams and from our trips to Twickenham is that you can only get better by playing the better sides, and that’s no different this weekend.

“We don’t fear anybody, we take each game as it comes, and in the losses that we’ve had this year we’ve nearly got points from each of them.

“So we’re under no illusions of what we can do against Lichfield.”
