Millwaters believes Supermarine are on the verge of something special
SEAN Millwaters believes Supermarine are on the verge of building something special this season and wants his players to add further bricks to their already impressive wall when they take on Devizes 2nds tomorrow.
The South Marston side sit top of Dorset & Wilts 1 North after the opening two games of the season following victories over Trowbridge 2nds and Combe Down, without conceding a try in either game.
The fast start has helped generate a positive atmosphere around the club with every score celebrated together as a team, and Millwaters believes their early efforts could go a long way towards building a successful season.
“We need to develop this roll and keep it going because if you develop a winning habit the winning keeps coming, and players really feel like they want to be a part of it,” he said.
“Players want to play for each other and when we score they celebrate together which has not always been the case.
“We are building something really special here but we need to keep adding bricks to that and develop what we’re doing.
“You’re only as good as your last game though, so we need to concentrate and carry on improving.
“It’s one game at a time for us and now we have to think about Devizes 2nds at Devizes, and we have to keep our feet on the ground and remember it’s only two games.
“We have some hard games to play in this league and we have nothing to celebrate just yet.”
As is always the case when facing second teams Millwaters is unsure what to expect from Devizes, mainly because he doesn’t know what strength side they will have available to them.
“We can’t worry about their game plan because we don’t know what it will be as we don’t know who will be in their team, although we can take snippets out of their match reports and work things out that way,” he said.
“Maybe a number of their first team can’t play away, who knows, so they could then drop down and play against us.
“You tend to find some players lower down the pyramid don’t do away matches and can’t travel for whatever reason, not because they don’t want to but because of work commitments and things like that.
“I’m not questioning players’ commitment because they’re not professional players and maybe a long trip from Devizes to Buckingham doesn’t appeal to them.
“But with Devizes having won a game this season their players will want to play, and the seconds are on a roll too so they might stick with the same players to face us.”
