Adam Kwasnicki says that the squad are working harder than ever to return stronger after the recent run of results, and will be looking for a response when they face Jersey next weekend at the Athletic Ground.
The hooker admitted that it has been a difficult start to the season, with four wins and four defeats in the opening eight matches.
“We have had some excellent victories, especially against Yorkshire Carnegie and London Welsh but also some disappointing performances and losses.
“It has been a challenging start and we are searching for that consistency of performance which will send us back up the table where we want to be.”
Kwasnicki also described the Greene King IPA Championship this year as the toughest in his time at the club.
“The general standard of the league is as high as I can remember and there are no easy games as we have found out ourselves.
“It is physically challenging and a few injuries to key players makes it even more difficult.”
The club captain praised Doncaster for their victory in a fiercely competitive match last weekend. “Credit to Doncaster, they defended really well and pressurised us in the scrum which paid dividends for them.
“The boys gave it 100% and were close to winning at a tough venue, we are all hurting after the loss and working hard to get back to winning ways.”
With no match this weekend the Scots will have had the best part of a fortnight to prepare for the visit of Jersey next Saturday, and Kwasnicki is confident that Scottish will return to form.
“We are working incredibly hard on the training pitch to improve as individuals and as a team we will continue to do so, we are confident that consistency of results will follow.”
