London Welsh: Premiership strugglers 'full of fight' - Ferguson

London Welsh
Welsh have a points difference of minus 205 so far after five Premiership games

London Welsh assistant coach Matthew Ferguson says they still have plenty of fight despite their torrid start to the Premiership season.

Welsh have lost all five of their games, are bottom of the table, and have already conceded 249 points.

They face Newcastle next but Ferguson says the squad remain positive.

"We are still fully up for this fight and I sincerely believe that we have the ability to see this job through," Ferguson told BBC Radio Oxford.

"You want your players to believe and, as management, when you lose your fight you are in trouble.

"At the moment, as a group, we are full of fight and our players are very hungry to do a job.

"We will put that into the performance and see where it takes us."

London Welsh have been beaten 52-0 twice this season

Welsh only have one point to their name and face Newcastle who are directly above them in the Premiership table.

Ferguson says the squad have quickly moved on from last weekend's 52-0 defeat at Harlequins and are ready for the challenge of the Falcons this Saturday.

"These boys are chomping at the bit to turn things around and, as a coach, that is all you can ask for," he said.

"When you look into their eyes you still see that fight there and I'm confident we can turn it around this week.

"Because of the togetherness, and the journey the majority of squad have been on, they come to work on Monday and roll their sleeves up," Ferguson added.
