LUCTONIANS are hoping to keep the 'ruthless edge' which saw them run over 55 points against a helpless Derby side last weekend.

Following an indifferent start to the season a run of three wins on the bounce has seen Ryan Watkins' side move into fourth and seven points from the top of the Midlands Premier.

Sam Boxhall kicked an early penalty for the hosts before a driving maul resulted in Aiden Cheshire grounding the first try.

Drew Cheshire then created space for Josh Watkins for a third try before a relentless piece of play resulted in Rob Bengry securing the bonus point before the break at 22-0.

The second half was more of the same as Aiden Cheshire charged through two tackles to cross the whitewash before Watkins made it 36-0.

Max Katjijeko continued the scoring before Bengry and Drew Cheshire completed the rout.

"It was our best performance this year," said head coach Watkins.

"I'm really pleased with the way we went about the game as we didn't stop for 80 minutes. We need to get over a bit of complacency and if we start easing off we will lose our way. We are asking for a ruthless edge.

"Every minute of the game we are trying to be on top and not relaxing but keeping our levels high. If we do that the quality will come through. If we start thinking it is easy then it will become harder."

Luctonians make the long trip to second from bottom Doncaster Phoenix this weekend.

Despite their form Watkins is wary of the challenge that will await.

He added: "Doncaster have won four games this season so will not be a pushover.

"It is a long travel for us so we will have to be on top or risk slipping up or missing the bonus point.

"These can be the biggest banana skins as they are not going to give up at home."
