Turnball ‘s side have suffered just one defeat at home all season while come into this match off the back of a fine win in the derby against rivals Hullensians.
Speaking to HU17.net Turnbull said;
“It’s a huge game this weekend, following from what was a great battle last week.
“We really had to dig deep at Hullensians, it’s a tough place to go, possibly one of the hardest in the league. We were accurate in our play barring two plays which they scored from.”
“The most pleasing thing was how we adapted and took Hullensians on up front. It was won by our big boys getting through a ton of work.”
“Matty Brown and Alexander McPeake were outstanding throughout, Doobs and Will Maynard played the game fantastically well; the back three were industrious and always looking for opportunities.”
“This week against Moortown will be a different challenge, it will be a titanic battle.”
“By all accounts they have recruited heavily from New Zealand and they were half decent at their place.”
“As long as we do the basics well we are more than capable of getting a win.”
Beverley RUFC now have their sights set firmly on promotion, flying high in the league a place in the playoffs is a very realistic goal.
Turnbull knows the importance of the game on Saturday but also the bigger picture pointing out that hopes of going up saying ‘It’s now in our hands.’
Moortown arrive at Beaver Park having drawn last weekend at home to Heath. They are 19 points behind Beverley in the league occupying eighth place.
Beverley have already beaten them once this season and with just one defeat at Beaver Park, it is hard to see Moortown taking anything from the game.
