New Barking director of rugby Nick Warren hopeful of adding to squad in time for Taunton test.

Barking director of rugby Nick Warren believes their hopes of staying in National Two South are realistic, otherwise he wouldn’t have taken the job.

Warren, a forwards coach at the club last season, replaced Dean Cutting as the Goresbrook chief last week following their 10th straight loss at Southend.

He guided them to their first two points of the season despite a 40-33 defeat against Clifton at home on Saturday and hopes to ease relegation fears around the club.

“Safety has to be the number one objective and it is certainly acheiveable. I wouldn’t have taken the position if I didn’t think we could stay up,” said Warren.

This weekend Barking travel to Taunton with new high-profile faces almost a certainty according to the former Leicester Tigers youngster.

“Taunton will be tough, but I hope we can get something from the game,” he added. “Hopefully there’ll be three high profile players coming in before Saturday. But they won’t be arriving to replace people, they’ll be strengthening what we already have here.”
