Edinburgh Monarchs’ real work starts on Friday even though his side have won all eight of their matches so far this season.

The team manager is adamant that all the focus is on ensuring they make a similarly strong push when they open their Premier League programme against Sheffield Tigers at Armadale later this week.

Monarchs have sailed through to the semi finals of the League Cup by topping their qualifying group, but Harkess said: “While it has been very encouraging that we have won all our meetings so far, the real work begins against Sheffield. The league is our priority and it’s what matters to everyone at the club.

“To win eight matches on the bounce is great, but now we must concentrate on finishing in the top six to guarantee our spot in the end-of-season play-offs. Sheffield won’t be easy opponents.”
