The Cornish All Blacks say they want to carry their winning form through to the end of the season.

Launceston are away to Canterbury on Saturday, after putting eleven tries past Barking last week.

They are only ten points behind rivals Redruth in the National League Two South table.

Coach Cliff Rainford reckons anything could happen. He said: "There's not much of a gap, no, between the top teams down to sixth position. But it's really just game at a time. Get the results, and the table will take care of itself. If we can put good performances in and get some good results, then who knows?

"I strongly believe that winning's partly a habit. Once you get a few wins together and start to get on that track, it makes the job that little bit easier. But you still have to really concentrate. This league is hard from top to bottom, and teams fighitng lower down, are still pushing."

Meantine, Redruth are hoping a home crowd boost will help them get back to winning ways against Southend.

The Reds have only won once in the last six games.

Last week's defeat to Henley all but killed off their promotion hopes.

Coach Ashley Morcom is keeping one eye on their Duchy rivals.

He said: "We want to win the last three games of the season, finish on a high, which leads us into next season. And the main thing for us now, is to make sure that Launceston don't overtake us. They're nipping at our heels, and we want to finish above them and I expect they're the same, they want to finish above us.

"We've showed this year that we've got a good crowd consistently week on week. Hopefully, they'll turn up this weekend and we can prove that we're not a bad side. We're a good side and we've had a little blip. We've been supported well this year, and we owe it to our supporters to do that."
