DAN Protherough is demanding his title winning Boars maintain their standards for the final two games of the season.

Bromsgrove beat Sutton Coldfield 54-12 at home last Saturday but the manner of the performance didn't impress the head coach.

He said: "I didn't think we played that well at all and we were lucky to meet a Sutton side that were struggling themselves.

"I thought there was always a chance of that happening after winning the league the week before but we all recognise that we didn't have a great game.

"It is a lesson for us as a team and as a group of players and it shows you that effort is huge in rugby and you have to have that.

"Thankfully Sutton are a team struggling themselves and had a few injuries and we got away with it and ran in a few long range tries."

Bromsgrove now head to Whitchurch this weekend before wrapping up the season with a home game against Worcester on April 13.

"We will have to be much, much better when we face Whitchurch this weekend," added Protherough.

"We still want to finish the season as strong as we can so we can carry that into next season.

"It's also about personal pride and making sure we don't take the foot off the gas."
