Waterhouse’s assistant coach Daniel Bent said keeping a lid on Cavalier’s attacking trident – Alex Marshall, Chevonne Marsh and Nicholas Hamilton – in their Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL) first-leg semi-final at the National Stadium on Monday was crucial to their 2-0 victory over the Rudolph Speid-coached team.“It was a part of the overall tactic of the team to not allow Alex and company to feel comfortable because in their top form, they can be dangerous,” said Bent. “Alex in the second-half had a few look-ins, Marsh did as well, but they didn’t capitalise and we are very pleased. The recovery work of our central defenders, (Nicholoy) Findlayson and Shawn Lawes, was excellent, they were covering each other whenever one was out of position, so the back line had each others’ back.”Former Cavalier midfielder Keithy Simpson returned to haunt his former employers, giving Waterhouse the lead in the 34th minute before Tremaine Stewart doubled the advantage six minutes later.Bent thought that his team’s experience was what made the difference in Monday’s contest and believes that their greater know-how will be a major advantage as they continue their push for a spot in the final next week Monday at the same venue.“They may have gotten the better of us in the early season. They got a possible seven out of nine points from us, but when it comes to the semi-finals, it is a different level, and with the experience this Waterhouse team has, man-to-man, it is a big thrust versus Cavalier. Cavalier have experience, but they have young players and our experience brought us over the line last night (Monday), and I think it will even lead us into the final,” Bent continued.“It was a good showing from the team. Although we had some rest from competition, we went to the training pitch to correct and fine-tune certain things and it paid dividends in the match. We are two goals up in a two-leg tie. We still have 90-plus minutes to play and we are not out of the woods yet, but things are looking positive for us,” he added.Bent added that is the start they were hoping for, and now that they are in the driver’s seat, they are looking to drive home the advantage with another clinical display in the second leg.“It’s a good start, and in any sport, whether track and field or otherwise, you need a good start. The start often sends the momentum going forward, so we are pleased we got two early goals in the first half and managed the game well in the second half. It was a good team performance overall,” he said.“There is always room for improvement, so we will look at what we did right and try to improve, but we are looking to come next week and get the job done again. So it’s more of not taking our foot off the gas but continue pressing and try to press home the victory, so we can reach the final and solidify ourselves as one of the better-playing teams in this year’s RSPL,” Bent said. – L.S.
‘Recruitment and retention shows continued growth’ – Lam‘Recruitment and retention shows continued growth’ – Lam
England international Hughes signs a three-year contract ahead of the 2019/20 campaign, while Chris Vui, Steven Luatua and Alapati Leiua have all recently committed their long-term futures to the club.And the Bristol Bears head coach is excited by the club’s ‘continued growth’.“You’ve got to strengthen your squad every year and I think when we set our goals pretty high, I see it as a responsibility to make sure we’ve got the right players and the right people at the club.“I’m excited by our continued growth. There is some real quality here already and I’m seeing them grow every day and making sure we add a few players here and there to enhance the group is important for us as Bristol Bears.“One of the real positives is that Chris Vui, Steven Luatua, Alapati Leiua – those boys re-signing is huge.“They are enjoying the place, they’re loving it and they want to contribute more. That’s probably a more pleasing thing.” “There is some real quality here already and I’m seeing them grow every day and making sure we add a few players here and there to enhance the group is important for us as Bristol Bears.” Pat Lam, head coach Nathan Hughes, the 27-year-old powerhouse number eight, heads to Ashton Gate from fellow Gallagher Premiership side, Wasps.And standing at 6’5” and weighing over 126kg, Lam believes Hughes will add a new dimension to his exciting side.“As we grow towards being a consistent Champions Cup team and a team that wants to win trophies, Nathan Hughes’ physicality, strength and power is huge for us, and bringing those sorts of qualities to our game is massive.“Everyone has seen the quality of the player, but I think for me, having known him from my time in New Zealand, he’s a good team man and he’ll fit nicely into the environment, which is also a really important thing for us.“But I think some of the qualities he adds to our game with the other players around him, allows us to take our game to another level as well.“We all know that the game evolves over the years, but one thing that doesn’t change is that you’ve got to win your ball and you’ve got to go forwards, and certainly Nathan can go forward and I think he will fit nicely into the way we like to play the game as well.“He’ll be able to express himself through our systems and structures and will add a lot of value to us.“So, we’re really excited to have him joining us next season.”
