Despite falling short against Riverview in the opening round last weekend, Newington first XV coach Tim Rapp is confident his side can bounce back and claim their first win of the season on Saturday against Kings, if they can make the most of their opportunities at Stanmore.

After trailing early, Newington took an unlikely 14-12 lead to the half time break following an intercept try, but conceded a try and a penalty goal in the second half in the 20-14 loss.

“Riverview probably got the jump on us early and we had to work hard to stay in the game, then we were probably chasing our tails a little bit for the rest of the match,” Rapp told Rugby News.
