Cobham director of rugby Steve Pope expects his men to be pushed all the way to the London Division Two South West title.

Pope’s men put Weybridge Vandals to the sword in the Elmbridge derby on Saturday with a 58-13 triumph to follow up last week’s 43-7 win at Old Reigatian.

It has Cobham four points clear at the top of the table, but Pope, who took charge in the summer, is not concerned with the league standings – for now.

“In this league every game has been tight, we are not presumptuous enough to think we are running away with everything,” said Pope.

“We’re seven games in to the season and three points clear, but I don’t see it like that. Some of the games we have played this season we have won by a point.

“We had five or six first team regulars in the second team for this game. They were not dropped it was just that I want to give those playing well in the second team a chance.

“We will look at where we are when we have played everybody. I don’t see us running away with anything.

“For me it is about building something much more than that, but if our performances mean we push for promotion then that is great.”

Cobham, who only led 17-13 at the break, scored 41 unanswered points in the second half at Brownacres to leave Vandals marooned in the division’s bottom three.

One Cobham scrum was decimated by the hosts at the start of the half, but it only served to inspire Pope’s men as it was one way traffic after that – much to the delight of the Fairmile Lane chief.

“Fair play to Vandals. They never stopped trying and that was a really good from them,” he added.

“Each scrum is an individual battle and it is something we have been working on.

“I sent the message on that I was not pleased with that and the boys really addressed the issue.

“What has pleased me over the last couple of week has been the way we have kept the foot on the pedal in the second half.”
