There were very few people who gave Broadstreet any chance of knocking National League side Leicester Lions out of the Powergen Trophy.
And those that did came from within the Coventry side's camp.
But while the rest of the rugby world wrote off the Midlands Two club, before their shock 19-10 win put them into round four of the competition, chairman Gary Watts revealed his club always had a belief that they could cause an upset.
"We saw the draw and thought that it was a game that suited us," Watts said. "They had just gone up and we had just gone down so the pressure was on them.
"But we played them last season in Midlands One and did pretty well in both games so we went there with confidence."
It was not misplaced and their victory, courtesy of tries from Dan Phillips, Eddie Simkiss and Luke Watts, was the most eyecatching of the day and confirmed that after two relegations in three years Broadstreet could be on the way back up.
Watts said: "Finally we have a little bit of solidity and consistency in our player and coaches. Some of the lessons our young lads learned in recent seasons seems to be coming good.
"It is only the start of the season but looking at our recent performances we can mount a challenge for the league."
If they do gain promotion they could join Walsall at level five - as long as Arnie Evans' men haul themselves out of the run of poor results in which they find themselves mired.
Walsall lost 35-19 at home to newly-promoted Burton and virtually gifted their opponents the points following a nightmare start in which they conceded four converted tries in just 18 minutes.
" We came out like lambs," grumbled Evans. " Our psychological approach has got to be better because we are allowing teams to get at us from the off."
Burton's tries came from Rob Scragg (2), Nick Smith, Rob Chive and Tom Bertram, with Jimmy Allen, Chris Mould and Andy Wood replying.
Bromsgrove's start to the campaign has been even worse and they slipped to another heavy defeat, this time 57-8 at home to Luton.
Rugby Lions continue to set the pace with a fourth successive win, 24-5 at Scunthorpe, while Bedford Athletic and Dunstablians also won.
Kenilworth stay top of Midlands Two West with a 26-15 triumph at home to Stoke but Newport also kept up their 100 per cent record by beating Malvern 16-5.
