Redruth boss Steve Larkins impressed by squad depth

Redruth RFC
Redruth have won five of their seven games so far this season

Redruth head coach Steve Larkins says the squad which won 23-17 at Dorking has put themselves in the frame for future National Two South matches.

The club were missing up to 10 players who could have featured in the game.

"We weren't up to full strength, but the boys that came up put a tremendous performance in," said Larkins.

"If you want to be involved in the home games at Redruth you've got to play well away from home and earn that shirt and deserve the call."

The victory was Redruth's third away win in four trips this season, beating the total number of away victories the club had during the whole of last season.

The club are sixth in the division, five points off leaders Taunton and three off Old Albanians, who they travel to on Saturday.

"We've got the strength in depth now," Larkins told BBC Radio Cornwall. "We've got players that can come in and they don't change the way we want to play and the ethos of Redruth.

"They're all about wanting to play for Redruth, wanting to do well for the team.

"To have guys like Tom Cowan-Dickie leading from the front, Chris Fuca, Damien Cook, we had all these guys who are experienced players, and to come to a place like this and win is a very proud day for Redruth. It's a real boost for the rest of the season."
