DRYBROOK team manager and chairman Chris Rawlings hailed the ‘resilient’ Squirrels after a 31-27 comeback win at Launceston put them on top of the South West One West table with two games left.

Drybrook usurped Exeter University as they lost 36-33 at Keynsham.

But the club’s former captain also warned of complacency ahead of two massive derbies against Matson and then at Newent.

“The weekend couldn’t have gone better for us,” he said.

“Launceston were a very good side and played some very good rugby.

“We went 15-0 down but we fought back and I think if we had lost we wouldn’t have deserved it.

“I think the key has been the resilence of the team. At Exeter University we went down by two tries but fought back.

“Some teams away from home could give up but we wouldn’t.

“The players back themselves to get back into the game and they are led excellently by Ben Large.

“We’re under no illusions about our next two games.

“I’ve never had an easy game against Matson and they’re fighting to stay in this league.

“Newent seem to be our achilles heel, our bogey team - they have had the better of us and will want to ruin the party.”
