Aylesbury boss Dave Larham says his side are playing some of their best rugby of the season but knows there are tough fixtures ahead, starting with today’s home game against Royal Wootton Bassett.

Purring boss Larham says his side played some of their best rugby of the season in the bonus point win over Reading Abbey last time out where they ran in six tries.

Aylesbury entertain seventh-placed Bassett sitting in second place – the promotion play-off spot – in the Southern Counties North as the season enters the business end.

“We played some of our best rugby of the season (at Reading) and scored four tries to gain the bonus point within 40 minutes,” Larham said.

“That said, we allowed Abbey back in the game and conceded two tries where we have to question our discipline and concentration.”

Larham said the introduction of debutant Colts Alex Shearer and Luke Walmsley gave the whole side a lift.

“That lift (helped us) dominate the final quarter and score two more tries,” he said.

“While we are happy with the win and aspects of our performance, we know we have bigger challenges ahead.”
