Matt Williams calls for consistency from Chinnor

Matt Williams says he wants to see more consistency as Chinnor bid to bounce back at home to Bishops Stortford on Saturday.

A last-minute try denied the side victory at Rams last weekend as they were forced to settle for just a losing bonus-point in National League 1.

Chinnor had led 14-3 at half-time and 21-15 with five minutes remaining, but they were unable to see the game out after they lost two players to the sin bin.

It resulted in the Thame-based side finishing the first month of the season with ten points from a possible 20.

While Williams is not pleased with the total, he is enthused by what he has seen.

Chinnor’s director of rugby said: “Every game we have played really well for a 30-minute block and we’ve got to turn that into 60 minutes.

“No-one plays well for 80 minutes, if they say they do they’re lying.

“So what we’ve got to understand now is that when we’re in front and in front well, we need to put our foot on the throat. And then when we’re trying to lock a game out for a result, we need to understand how to win that game.

“We’ve played some of the best rugby I’ve seen here, but it’s in small patches and we’ve got to now build that into more consistency throughout the game.”

Williams added: “Had we won three out of four I would have been pleased with the first month because we’ve had three away games.

“This is a very long season.

“It isn’t won or lost in the first month, but it’s important for us that we learn from our mistakes.”

Chinnor are boosted by the return of scrum-half Callum Watson (groin), while centre Pete Laverick, who is dual-registered with Exeter Chiefs, is in contention for his debut.

However, flanker Ofisa Treviranus is being assessed for concussion, while lock Joe Dancer (elbow) is sidelined.

Chinnor head into this weekend’s fixture against Stortford, having only beaten their Hertfordshire visitors twice in their last ten meetings.

Williams said: “We’ve struggled against them over the last few years.

“They always have a very good travelling support in their blue blazers, but it’s important that we build our home momentum this year and get our second win at Kingsey Road.”
