Warwick University Rugby League look to bounce back after a tough run of results
A difficult run of only one win in four games for a stoic WURL side is not what was hoped for but in an open-ended league the squad still hopes to achieve its target of a top 3 finish.
Tough losses to Birmingham, Coventry and Oxford in closely-fought battles took their toll on the side as injuries mounted. WURL stood up tall in every game but unfortunately ended up on the losing side each time, sometimes by less than a try.
"What's most frustrating about those games is that they were winnable." Says skipper George Edge. "We fought hard in every game. Against Birmingham and Coventry, on another day we would have got the win - arguably we should have. But that's on us and all we can do now is look forward to the next games and use those experiences to get us over the line next time we play these sides. Our goal for a top 3 finish is still there and the way this league is going anyone can beat anyone so we just have to stick at it and get a few more wins on the board."
The one win in this four game run came against Oxford Brookes at home, as Warwick took it home 8-4. Another Tom Palmer try, in a rich vein of form, as well as a conversion and a penalty from Bradley Sheridan was enough to see off a physical Brookes side.
Next up for Warwick University Rugby League is an away fixture against Cambridge RLFC, having already beaten them at home 33-12 one month ago.
