Launceston's director of rugby Neil Bayliss is hopeful the confidence gained from his side's victory against Worthing Raiders will stand them in good stead against Cambridge.

The 29-19 home victory last weekend was Launceston's first in five matches.

"It was nice to win one after five losses on the bounce," Bayliss told BBC Radio Cornwall.

"We have probably played better in a few games we have lost, but to get that win is a joyous thing."

The visit to Cambridge is the first away fixture involving a stay overnight for many of the first team and although Bayliss is expecting a tough test, he is hopeful of maintaining their momentum.

"We have been playing good rugby all season and to get the win last Saturday is obviously a massive morale boost, not only for the squad, but for the coaching staff and fans as well," he said.

"It is a big monkey off our back. It is just one game of rugby we have won, we were not as good as we could have been but we go to Cambridge away with some confidence.

"I want us to go there and play in the style we played on Saturday, and put in a performance."
