Rosslyn Park coach Scott Sneddon is under no allusions about what it will take to maintain their winning run.

A 46-22 win over Blaydon last weekend extended Park’s 100 per cent in National League One to four games.

However, this weekend they travel to Hartpury College the only side who can realistically catch runaway leaders Richmond.

Sneddon, who took over the coaching role until the end of the season with Andy Holloway after the club ditched James Buckland, is hopeful of still being in the role come next season, but on a permanent basis.

“It has not been an easy job, but hugely enjoyable,” he said.

“There are ongoing talks at the club about the coaching role, but we’ve shown some good form over the past two weeks and hopefully it will continue until the end of the season.”

Sneddon, who kicked 16 points in the win over Blaydon, added: “There will be changes over the summer, there always is without some players coming and some going.

“But we have a core of players we hope will stay, and with a couple of additions we’ll hopefully be in a strong position next season.

“We know we’re not where we want to be right now, but we are not a million miles away.

“We have a quality squad, but we know there will be clubs next year who have budgets far bigger than ours.”

Hugo Ellis (two), Paul Mackey, Harry Elrington, Tom Whiteley and Andrew Henderson got the tries at the Rock on Saturday.

Now they are pitting their wits against Hartpury College, the division leading scorers who have lost just once at home, and Sneddon is wary of the title chasers.

“They have nothing to lose because all the expectation is on Richmond to win the title,” he said.

“Hartpury are a very strong side, especially at home, and they will come at us with bonus points in mind, and they are very strong in the turnovers.

“But I am confident if we apply ourselves we can put in a good performance.”

He added: “We are without a couple of guys in the front row, and there are likely to be a few bumps and bruises from a physical game against Blaydon.

“We’ll have to make a call on them at training this week, and see how we go.”
