ROYSTON head coach Kevin Green is looking to end the season on a high with a victory against second-placed Old Haberdashers, on Saturday.
And The Crows could well play an important role in who wins the Herts and Middlesex Division 2 North, with Haberdashers still in with a shot at the title.
Green told The Crow: "It's a game we will be looking to win, and it would be nice to end the season with a victory at the Heath.
"When we played Haberdashers away we lost narrowly, in a game we could well have won. So they would be a great scalp to take, especially as they can still potentially be crowned league champions."
In recent matches, Green has shuffled his line-up and blooded a number of the club's promising youngsters.
However, he is leaving nothing to chance, by using all of Royston's experience on Saturday.
He said: "I will be going with my tried and tested players, the ones that have done us proud all season.
"We'll have Jamie Green back after a long injury lay-off, although we do have captain Steve Clay out."
It has been an up-and-down campaign for The Crows, who secured their league status last month with an impressive 29-21 win at Watford, following a string of disappointing results.
Green said: "League-wise, we finished where we had expected and we've done well to consolidate our position following last year's promotion.
"We've seen off some decent teams in Cantabridgian, Wisbech, Ely, St Neots, St Albans, and Biggleswade away from the league, and we also gave Hitchin a scare in the Herts Cup.
"We're all looking forward to next season, because this is a club that is going from strength-to-strength."
n On Saturday, Royston hammered Biggleswade 43-19 with Chris Wallis (2), Steve Clay, Dan Fox, Jamie Green, and Shaun McDermott (2) all grabbing tries. Jason Deards added a further eight points with his boot, while McDermott reached 100 points for the season.
