Highams club won 36-20 away from home on Saturday

Head coach Tom Redfern admits there is room for improvement for Woodford, despite opening their London Two North East campaign with a 36-20 success at Basildon.

The Highams club claimed maximum points on the opening day of the new term with success away to the divisional newcomers.

Woodford ran in six tries in total in the success, but Redfern has already pinpointed the areas where his side must improve going forward.

“We weren’t happy with our first half display and I felt we went through the motions a little,” he said.

“We didn’t seem to get going and we made mistakes, but the boys roused themselves at half-time and gave a reaction in the second half that was led by them.

“We got a good tempo going in the second half and showed some good energy, which was pleasing to see.

“To get all five points away from home in our first game was good, but we know we can deliver better performances.”
