CHAIRMAN of Rugby Mike Crawshaw admits Windsor have got to cut out the mistakes in order to give themselves a chance of securing a first win this season, writes Rob Stevens.

Windsor have suffered defeat in their first three matches in the South West One East, including a 32-19 loss at Buckingham on Saturday, leaving them pointless and second from bottom in the table.

Crawshaw is confident the team will regroup ahead of a visit to Home Park from Royal Wootton Bassett this Saturday but is aware of the need to be more clinical.

He told the Observer: “The bottom line is the performance wasn’t helped after a crash at Stokenchurch meant the coach didn’t arrive until 2.20pm on Saturday.

“We then lost a player in the warm-up so preparation was not great but, in truth it wasn’t a great performance either.

“We were not clinical enough in the game and made more mistakes. Buckingham took advantage of our mistakes and we lost as a consequence.

“We’ve not been helped by having to play three of the best sides in the league in the first month of the season.

“The key thing is the boys will regroup but this league is tough and if you continue to make mistakes then you will get punished.

“The bottom line is we’ve got to me more clinical and cut out the mistakes because if you concede 30 points or more in a match then you can’t expect to win it.”

He added: “We will train hard and look to put in a performance but we know how tough it will be because Wootton Bassett are unbeaten and beaten some good sides in this league."
