For Hemel Stags full-back James Cameron, Sunday’s loss to London Skolars was one of mixed emotions – delight at scoring two tries that brought his season’s tally to five being tinged with disappointment after the Stags let two vital competition points fall from their grasp.

“I was happy to cross the line twice at the weekend, but not coming away with a result in a game we should have won took away from my own personal performance,” said Cameron.

“We started the game so well, playing to how we trained all week for the match. But we then went away from our original game plan for some inexplicable reason and started playing reckless rugby, giving the opposition possession and chances to score points on us, which unfortunately they took full advantage of.”

The popular Australian says there is one area in particular the team can work on this week.

“Our defence at marker needs to be focused on at training this week if we want to improve for our next match.

“Other than that we just need to do the basics right and keep teams under pressure by not making mistakes on the first or second tackle when we have the ball.”

The unassuming Cameron concluded by looking ahead to this weekend’s clash against the basement dwelling South Wales Scorpions.

“We have a tough run for the remainder of the season and first up we have South Wales Scorpions on Sunday who will not be pushovers. We need to focus on getting everything right in this game and regain our confidence with a solid win at home.

After that we can turn our attention to our remaining games and concentrate on securing a place in the end of season play-offs.”
