It has been another frustrating weekend for Rosslyn Park’s coaching team following a fourth successive defeat in National League One.

Park went down 18-13 at Old Albanians on Saturday, extending their 100 per cent losing record so far this season and leaving them 14th in the 16-team table.

Harry Leonard kicked Park ahead, and the same man went over for a try in the dying moments of the first half, which he converted to put Park 10-0 ahead against 13 men.

However, Park failed to press home their advantage, and fell for the sucker punch on the stroke of half-time when the old boys conjured a try that should have been defended.

A mere five-point advantage was a poor return for a good first half, and it was reduced to two when Chris May added a penalty for the hosts on 53 minutes.

And it disappeared altogether when winger Jimmy Spears broke away to score a converted try for 15-10.

Park were still in the match with every chance and they opted to kick a penalty with 13 minutes for 15-13, and look for a winning score.

However, another May penalty on 74 minutes left Park still searching for their first win.

Defence coach Scott Sneddon said: “Again it is another frustrating performance.

“We worked really hard into a strong wind in the first half, but didn't execute the game plan well enough to come away with more at half time.

“A lapse in concentration allowed them get into the game, and our ill-discipline gave them field position which resulted in conceding soft points and field position.

“Credit to Old Albanians, they took the chances we gave them.”

Looking forward to this weekend’s home game against third-placed Darlington Mowden Park, Sneddon added: “We'll go away this week and work on these little details which will make sure we are in a better position against a strong Darlington side.

“There have been some good positives over the past couple of weeks, but we need to ensure we take these opportunities and convert the pressure we are putting on teams into points.”
