Waterloo hope to consolidate second spot as league action resumes for Deventer's side
by Tom Martin

FOLLOWING a week off Waterloo return to league action this weekend away at Ilkley, one of last season's promoted sides.

The Yorkshire outfit have made a solid start to their campaign at the higher level and are in 10th place with five wins from the eleven played so far. Although they are still not totally out of relegation danger being just three points above the drop zone.

“They will be an unknown quantity and on their own ground we can expect them to come at us from the first whistle,” confessed director of rugby Jan Van Deventer. “We have had a good run since the beginning of the season and although we have not been at our best in some of the games we have still managed eight wins out of the eleven played so far.”

“We are second at the moment and with three game still to go before the Christmas break at home to Sheffield after this Saturday and then away at Wirral the following week we will be hoping we can come into the new year still in second spot,” Deventer continued. “If we can do that we will be set up for the second half of the league programme and just where we would want to be at this stage of the campaign.”
