Rosslyn Park backs coach Scott Sneddon says there will be some honest discussions in the dressing room after more lapses in concentration cost them valuable points.

A 26-26 draw at Loughborough Students on Saturday keeps Park in the bottom three of the National League table ahead.

But it could have been worse as Park’s unforced errors saw them trailing 20-0 at one point.

And life will get no easier this weekend when second placed Birmingham Molesey are the visitors to the Rock on Saturday.

Sneddon said: “We talked about backing up last week’s performance [a 36-16 win over Darlington Mowden Park] with an 80 minute performance against a young Loughborough team, who will always work hard for the whole game.

“Unfortunately, it was another case of too many unforced errors early in the game which meant Loughborough not having to work hard for their points.

“While there were some positives in the way we fought back to get the draw, we need to stop these lapses in concentration for 20-minute periods at the start of the game.”

He added: “We'll go away this week and be honest as a group that the weekend was simply not good enough.”

Park eventually got on the scoresheet at Loughborough through Sneddon’s penalty, and the coach also converted when full back Henry Robinson went over the whitewash.

Sneddon was among the points again with a penalty and the conversion of Stewart Maguire’s try to bring the scores level at 20-20.

Loughborough edged back in front only for a Sneddon penalty and drop goal to give Park the edge.

However, Loughborough levelled the scores with the last kick of the game.

Looking ahead to this weekend’s titanic battle against Birmingham Molesey, who beat Cambridge 72-14 last weekend, Sneddon said: “Moseley will bring a huge challenge to the Rock this week and we need to perform for 80 minutes like we did against Darlington.

“There's no doubting the ability in the group, it's just having a strong mental edge that can back this up”.
