All three Cornish rugby teams are in action this weekend, in National League 2 and the British and Irish Cup.
The Cornish Pirates welcome Swansea in the latter competition having won all their matches so far.
But coach Harvey Biljon knows after the recent bad weather, it will not be an easy game: "Players from the Ospreys will be joining them in the team this weekend so we'll have the threat of some seasoned professionals but we get fantastic support at home and I know the players will want to maintain their position at the top of the pool.
"I don't think there's a dry pitch anywhere so it's going to be a heavy surface so we're going to need to really grind out another victory but I think the players are ready to step up."
In National League 2, Redruth travel to Southend.
The Reds are hoping for their fourth victory in a row against a side struggling near the bottom of the table.
Coach Ashley Morcom says they are focussed on their game plan for the next couple of weeks: "The team spirit's pretty high. Even though we've been hit with the monetary problems, we seem to be bouncing onwards. Obviously, beating Henley a couple of week ago was the icing on the cake and now we're building up to try and attack Launceston in three weeks' time."
Meantime, Launceston say they have got one mind-set as they welcome Canterbury and that is to win the game.
The Cornish All Blacks are looking for their fifth victory in a row on Saturday.
But captain and coach Tom Rawlings says there is no room for complacency: "We want to be climbing the table. We're currently in sixth, but there's teams all around us who are very, very close so if you slip up, suddenly you drop a couple of league places, therefore it's really important that we go out this weekend and get the win first of all."
Redruth kick-off at 3pm and the Cornish All Blacks kick-off at 2.30pm, both on Saturday.
The Cornish Pirates kick-off at 2pm on Sunday.
