Woodford head coach Tom Redfern believes his team gave a good account of themselves in difficult circumstances in a 39-21 defeat at Cantabrigians in London Two North East.

Having recorded their first win of the season at home to Chelmsford the previous weekend, Redfern had hoped the Highams club could build on that success.

However, Woodford came up short on their trip to Cambridge and were unable to claim any bonus points in defeat.

The Highams club, though, were forced into a number of changes for the match, and Redfern says the team deserve credit for still turning in a positive display despite that.

“It was a competitive game and a couple of late tries for Cantabs made the score suggest it wasn’t,” said Redfern.

“We had to make eight changes from the win against Chelmsford the previous weekend, so it was never going to be easy for us.

“That said, we’ve disappointed we were unable to take something from the game.

“We had a lot of ball in their 22 in the opening periods, but we didn’t score and if we had, it could have been different.”

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
