Maidenhead RFC's players are putting in the hard yards in training and matches to ensure they finish above their play-off rivals for second place to send head coach Russell Bolton away on a real high.
Andy Berry, who crossed the line twice in Maids' 40-27 destruction of Drybrook at Braywick Park on Saturday, believes a little introspection at the halfway point of the season has seen the players return after Christmas with a more focused approach.
If so it was evident in their 30-20 win at Cleve and Saturday's impressive 'front foot' display of rugby against Drybrook.
"We came back after Christmas and evaluated the first half of the season and felt we let ourselves down a bit at Braywick," said Berry.
"We took a look at ourselves and since the start of the year there's been a real concentration in training, there have been better numbers at training and the boys are putting in the hard yards.
"So to put Drybrook to the sword for 70 minutes is really impressive. We ran out of steam a bit at the end but the game was done.
Credit to the backline today, they looked really sharp and were slicing the Drybrook backline to pieces. The forwards gave them a good platform but the backs were on fire today."
The ambition for Berry and the rest of the squad is simply to better last year's third placed finish and ensure their departing coach is given a memorable send off.
"Second is certainly the target," he said. "There are a couple of sides above us and I don't know how it's gone for them today but that's certainly the ambition. We want to better last season and send Russ (Bolton) off on a really strong high note.
Russ has got our full backing this season and I'm sure he won't be a stranger next year. Hopefully he'll be involved because the club means a lot to him and he means a lot to the club."
