RUGBY: Sherwin targets top three finish for Wellington
9:59am Thursday 5th September 2013 in Sport
WELLINGTON Director of Rugby Bill Sherwin is confident of a positive result in the club’s opening league fixture of the season on Saturday (3pm).
His side take on Torquay Athletic at home on the back of an emphatic 57-7 victory over Ivel Barbarians last weekend.
He said: “We have had a couple of good results in our pre-season warm-up games and things are looking good.
“We have had a lot of people training and some good Under-18s coming up through.
“I’d like to think we’ll be pushing for the league the whole way – the top three has to be the aim.
“Torquay will be a very good side and it should be a very good game. We’re all looking forward to it.”
Wellington ran in nine tries in their trouncing of Ivel Barbarians.
Ben Gamlin (2), Ben Williams (2), Tim Jenkinson, Robin Trott, Mickey Norman, Dan Moore and Joe Dyke all crossed for Wellington, who now head into Saturday’s Tribute Western Counties West fixture with their tails up.
