Murphy after successive wins ahead of match at Hammersmith
Woodford head coach Andy Murphy says confidnece is high ahead of Saturday’s trip to Hammersmith & Fulham after a late show in their last fixture.
The Highams club edged their way to success in their latest London Two North West outing at home to HAC, thanks to Tom Redfern’s drop goal four minutes from time.
Woodford were able to cling on to claim a narrow 32-30 triumph in their first home game of the season and Murphy is positive about the chances of successive victories on Saturday.
“We know Hammersmith score a lot of points so we’ll be working on a gameplan to stop them this weekend,” said Murphy.

“I think if we are to win, we have to be good up front. We’re improving in the set-pieces and it’s looking good.
“We went close to scoring with a move off the back of our first set-piece against HAC, which is positive. The boys are learning all the time which is great.”

Following their relegation from London One North last season, Woodford are now unbeaten in two games.
And having seen a host of new players join during the summer, Murphh believes the team can continue to impress.
“It’s all about the team getting game time with one another and we’re looking very good at the minute,” he added.
“We did lose Ben Lawrence to a knee injury, but we now have the strength in depth to cover it, with players coming back.”
