Launceston head coach Jimmy Tucker positive about team's chances next season

Redruth v Launceston
Launceston will play in the fifth tier of English rugby next season

Launceston boss Jimmy Tucker says he is upbeat about his side's chances next season despite going down from National Two South without winning a game.

The Cornish club lost 90-3 in their final game against Old Albanian and ended the season with just 10 points.

"We've been absolutely annihilated in this league in this current season," Tucker told BBC Radio Cornwall.

"But the boys that have stayed have stuck together and they are positive and motivated."

Launceston lost 19 of their 20 league matches, drawing their other game 17-17 with Southend in November.

They will now play in National Three South West and Tucker says player-coach Ryan Westren will be working his squad hard this summer.

"They're looking to put weight on and get fitter and stronger for next season, so we make a bit of an impact in that league," he added.

"We're positive about going into that division - it's probably the right division for us at the moment.

"We've got a moderately strong squad, and a squad that is united at the very least."
