Cinderford director of rugby Andy Deacon says he used to try and plan three or four weeks in advance. Now he's given up and concentrates solely on the game ahead.

Cinderford's defeat in Launceston means they're back in the bottom three, but Deacon insists there's still a lot of rugby to play and points to fight for.

"We'll go to the death," he said.

"I want the players to stay upbeat and confident because we can beat anyone. Launceston is one that got away, but expectations are growing massively.

"I expect us to win these games.

"It was a frustrating day, we got on the wrong end of the ref but we can't blame that, we didn't take our chances.

"Elements of our game were not good enough but we're talking about such small margins between winning and losing."
