Fullers head coach Rich Hoskins felt his side lacked composure during their 45-17 London One North defeat at Eton Manor on Saturday.

The winning margin was partly a product of some sloppy play from Fullers as they gifted their hosts a number of easy scores and also fell foul of the referee on occasion.

Hoskins said his side played well in patches but was critical of an overall display which lacked conviction and allowed Manor a big winning margin.

“We played some good rugby when we had self-belief. We lacked composure at critical times and gifted Eton Manor two or three tries,” Hoskins said of the defeat.

“We knocked on, missed tackles or gave interceptions. It was a better performance than last week and we are improving.”

Fullers, who were without some key names, started well on a 3G surface but couldn’t maintain their intensity as Manor soon took control.

A sin-bin for Steven McKenzie-Cardy complicated matters for Fullers and Manor took advantage to lead 26-5 at half-time.

Hoskins’ men looked to come back into the game after the break, but another yellow card, on this occasion for Andrew Alexander meant they stood little chance.

Manor continued to dominate and Fullers never really looked like getting back into the game as they went down to defeat.

They will target a better result when taking on Rochford Hundred in their next game.
