Cambridge Rugby Club head coach and director of rugby Richie Williams apologises to fans after heavy RFU Championship defeat at Hartpury University





Cambridge endured a tough evening under the lights last Friday as they suffered a 61-10 defeat at Hartpury University.

The hosts, who also won the reverse fixture between the sides at Ellgia Fields, ran in nine tries to condemn Cambridge to an 11th RFU Championship defeat.

For Cambridge, Kwaku Asiedu in the 16th minute and Tom Hoppe in the last piece of action dotted down unconverted tries.

“A massive apology to the people that have travelled to watch us play tonight,” Cambridge’s director of rugby and head Richie Williams told the Richie & Jacko Podcast.

“That’s not what we’re about as a group. Individually we weren’t good enough (and) collectively we weren’t good enough. That’s two weeks in succession where we’ve conceded more than 50 points, which is not acceptable on any level.

“We’ve got a lot of reflecting to do and I’ve asked the players to watch their individual performances back and ask themselves was that level of performance good enough to play at this level. The skill level left a lot to be desired.”

Cambridge play host to neighbouring Bedford on Saturday (9 March).
