LUCTONIANS head coach Ryan Watkins says he will be looking for more flow from his team as they prepare for their second pre-season friendly.

The Kingsland side went down 7-5 to Bridgnorth on Saturday in a game that was marred by a sending off for new recruit Adam Clayton.

Their next encounter is against National League 2 South side Dorking at Mortimer Park,

"They will be a strong side and I will be looking for us to push on," said Watkins.

"It's going to be a test, but I'm looking forward to the challenge."

Clayton was dismissed after connecting with an opponent's head when trying to hook the ball back following a ruck.

"That disrupted the game and it got a bit scrappy with no real flow," added Watkins.

Lucs solitary try was scored by Rob Cowley.

Prior to that match, the seconds also played Bridgnorth and ran out 24-12 winners thanks to two tries from scrum-half Jacob Ham.

"The seconds looked really strong and very organised," said Watkins.

"They were disappointed that they didn't score more points because they missed a couple of tries."

Both games lasted an hour, but the Dorking encounters are set to be a full 80 minutes each.

Watkins said that some of the second team players may make the bench for the firsts, but doesn't want to make too many wholesale changes.

"It's about getting the balance right," said Watkins.
