Rugby: Weekend Preview
4:14pm 26th October 2012
Redruth hit the road on Friday, on the hunt for yet another win.
The Reds are away to Lydney, after beating Chinnor last week.
Our lads are sitting at second in the table, after losing just one match out of their first seven in the season.
The home side have only had one victory so far, but head Coach Adrian Edwards insists they can't be complacent.
He said: "They just lost to Taunton, and I think the week before, they lost to Chinnor by one point. They'll definitely want to try and take a scalp like Redruth. So we've got to be at our utmost best. We're away from home and then you've got a team that are desperate to get that next win. It's going to be a hard old afternoon's work for us I think.
"We want to be confident but we've also got to be aware that teams are out there. Lydney are desperate to get a win and they're a dangerous side. We don't want to get over confident, we've also got to believe in our abilities but we don't want to go there with an over-confidence or an arrogance that we're just going to win it. We don't sort of operate like that."
Meantime, the Cornish All Blacks are preparing for a "tough test" as they welcome Taunton on Saturday.
Launceston are on the hunt for points, after securing just two wins from their first eight games in National League Two.
Captain Tom Rawlings says playing in front of a home crowd is a boost: "There's no hiding it, when you lose you do get yourself down in the dumps for that following, but the guys will pick themselves up. We've got to, we've dusted ourselves down and we've go to go again this weekend. It's a completely different test, a completely different outfit bu we're at home."
The Cornish Pirates are back in Championship action on Sunday.
Leeds Carnegie are visiting in the half two kick off.
Both sides go in after victories in the Cup.
But head Coach Ian Davies is expecting another tough league clash. He said: "They've beaten us twice, and we've drawn once and we've only beaten them once, so they're a tough opposition. They're a young team now and they're doing very well, so they've lost that tag of 'we should be a Premiership side' and now they're fighting to become a Premiership side again."
