Sam Sterling bagged two second-half tries, but that was of no consolation to the Bury St Edmunds outside-centre following Saturday’s 27-21 home defeat to Henley Hawks in National League Two South.

“It was just like last week, and I don’t know what I can really put that down to,” rued Sterling.

“To be honest, maybe we should just go back to old-school, get out of the blocks and smoke someone!

“We came back in the second half, but we shouldn’t be having to do that. If we could do it in the first half as well, then we would be getting winning bonus points every week. There’s no reason why we shouldn’t be.

“We need a few more wins, but if we can play in the position we are in, like a dog with it’s back against the wall, then we will be fine. But I think people need to smell the roses and realise we are in that position.”
