TEAM manager Geoff Roberts has called for his Sedgley players to go for glory in their crunch play-off clash on Saturday.

After sealing second spot in National Two North with an emphatic 80-19 win at home to Sheffield Tigers last weekend, Roberts and his Tigers side head to National Two South runners-up Chinnor this weekend with the winner promoted to National One for next season.

It is a prize Sedgley are keen to secure after an impressive campaign that ended with a ninth successive win.

And Roberts is relishing the one-off tie in Oxfordshire, believing his team has what it takes to make it 10 wins in a row.

He told the Bury Times: “We are all really looking forward to it.

“We go into it confident after a fantastic run since Christmas but we are aware this will be a totally different kettle of fish.

“Chinnor have a similar style to us with a decent forward pack and handy backs.

“They have scored more than 1,000 points in their season so we have to respect them a lot. Thanks to the RFU hub, which sees teams load all their games onto the internet, we have been able to get a lot of information on how they play but they will have had the same opportunity to look at us.

“The fact we are the away team will play a part with the travelling we have to do but we are on the train early in the morning before meeting up with the team coach in Milton Keynes.

“They will be expecting a big crowd and it will be a huge occasion but we are ready for that and relishing it.

“We just have to go for it – it is a cup final for us and winner takes all.

“We will train well hopefully this week and have no injury concerns so have a full squad to pick from.

“Whatever happens, I expect it will be a lively bus trip home on Saturday night.”

Sedgley go into the game having scored 12 tries against Sheffield Tigers in their final home game last weekend.

Steve Collins and Jamie Harrison bagged hat-tricks and there was a brace for Will Lees.

Other tries on the day came from Nathan Rushton, Matt Riley, Callum McShane and Andy Riley as they inflicted a heavy defeat on Sheffield opposition for the second week in succession.

It was, says Roberts, the perfect warm-up for the Chinnor tie.

He added: “It was a similar story to the win against Sheffield the previous week.

“Not many teams lower down have been able to handle us – we have been too quick and too smart. When they played they were no mugs but we started well and went through the gears.”
