DUDLEY Kingswinford coach Shaun Perry wants his side to put their hard work on the training pitch into action this weekend.

The DKs will welcome Preston Grasshoppers on Saturday and Perry is keen for his side to continue progressing.

He said: "It is still all about getting the best out of this group of players. Saturday's game against Preston is yet another chance for them to try the moves we have been working on in training. We have worked hard on a number of different things and I now want them to try and put some of that into practice.

"It is all about helping them improve. We have a young back line so I really want to point them in the right direction and help them learn before the end of the season."

The club's search for a new director of rugby appeared to take a step forward after Perry confirmed he has not been chosen to fill the vacant role.

A spokesman for Dudley Kingswinford remained tight-lipped about whether the club has found someone to take up the position.
