Highams club overcame Harlow 52-12 at home last weekend
Tom Redfern is excited for Woodford’s clash at home to Southwold on Saturday as two sides with 100 per cent records in London Two North East go head to head.
The Highams club have beaten Basildon and Harlow so far this term, while Southwold have defeated Stowmarket and Norwich.
Woodford, though, are a point better off than their opponents on Saturday having secured a try bonus point in both of their games this term.
And while head coach Redfern is happy with his side’s start to the campaign, he knows each week will present a new difficult challenge.
“We know the games are going to get harder and harder because every team is still trying to find their feet this season,” he said.
“We’re both yet to lose and both getting good results, yet because they came up last year I think we both don’t know much about the other.
“I’m sure we’re both looking for improvements on Saturday and both looking for the win as well.”
Woodford continued their great start to the season last weekend with a 52-12 triumph at home to Harlow.
The Highams club scored eight tries in total, with Sonny Spicer, Will Cooper-Rendu, Matt Farrington, James Baxandall, Rellon McRae, Johnny Smith, Tom Redfern and Tom Hemmings all crossing the whitewash.
And Redfern is delighted with how Woodford have begun the new campaign from an attacking point of view.
“Our attacking performance as a club so far has been really pleasing. Between the firsts and the seconds last weekend, we were able to score 100 points,” he added.
“That’s great to see, but we know there are still areas where we can improve and we were disappointed to concede 12 points against Harlow.
“We’re pleased with how we’ve started, but you can only play what’s in front of you and there are some tough games to come.”
Woodford will hope to continue their fine start by getting the better of Southwold this weekend.
And while Redfern’s full focus will be on simply winning, he would surely love another try bonus point too.
