SEDGLEY Park coach Steve Hazzelby is taking nothing for granted when the Tigers put their 100-per-cent start on the line against Tynedale on Saturday.

Three wins from the first three games sees the Park Lane side second – just a point behind early leaders Caldy – ahead of the home clash this weekend.

But while their good form continued with a 27-10 victory at Huddersfield on Saturday, Hazzelby knows they have to be on their mettle every weekend to stay in the promotion hunt tis season.

He told the club’s website: “On Saturday we are home to old rivals Tynedale and this again will be a big challenge as results in recent seasons have gone their way.

“We know that we will have to be at our best to take the honours.

“But what a great start to the season so far – three wins, 13 points and second in the league just one point behind leaders Caldy.”

The Tigers go into this weekend in fine form after their hat-trick of wins – the latest against Huddersfield.

A penalty apiece in an even start saw the score at 3-3 just after the half-hour mark before a Nathan Rushton try, converted by Steve Collins, made it 10-3 to Sedgley at the midway point.

After the interval, a second Collins penalty increased the lead but the hosts hit back with a converted try on the hour mark to reduce the arrears.

However, a converted Will Lees try on 67 minutes set Sedgley back on the road to victory and Leon Simpson bagged a third try in the final minute to seal victory.

Hazzelby continued: “After the great win against Wharfedale the week before we were looking to put in another strong performance against a very powerful side.

“This was always going to be a big challenge with our young, inexperienced side – seven of whom were 18-22 years of age.

“Results at Huddersfield have always been close and we knew we were in for a tough afternoon.

“We did have the return of two of our powerful forwards in vice captain Bob Birtwell and tighthead prop Ben Black.

“The game was very tight with both sides testing the other’s tight defence.

“However, after great driving play by our forwards, our loosehead prop, Nathan Rushton, burst over for a great score converted by Steve to end a great half of rugby.

“The second half started well with a penalty to further extend our lead but Huddersfield did come back with a good try of their own through their big powerful forwards.

“But the second half belonged to the Tigers and a great team try by man-of-the-match, Will Lees, was followed up with a breakaway try for our flying right winger Leon Simpson, both converted.

“It was a well-deserved four-point win.

“It has to be said that our fantastic defence and team spirit are proving a winning combination so well done to the boys.”
