WINNING FEELING: Bury's Gavin Hogg

Gavin Hogg takes his Bury St Edmunds RUFC side into tomorrow’s game with Barnstaple (3pm) believing they have now turned a corner in their season.

A dramatic kick in the last play of the match against Barnes on Saturday saw them register back-to-back wins for the first time this campaign.

And asked if it can now provide a platform for the Wolfpack to push on towards their aim of a top-six finish, director of rugby Hogg said: “I think so. We said to the guys on Thursday night this game (Barnes) was really going to shape our season.

“If we can pick up another win on Saturday, it really does increase the gap to those bottom three or four sides and that takes away that looking over our shoulder, and gives us the opportunity to build a bit of momentum and a bit of confidence.”

But Hogg will not let over-confidence ruin his now eighth-placed side’s chances of three straight victories when the second-from-bottom side visit.

“They will come with nothing to lose and we need to do the basics right,” he added.
