Redruth welcome Chinnor on Saturday after problems on and off the pitch.

The Reds have lost two games in a row.

Plus the club has got money worries.

Some players have not been paid.

But forwards' coach Ashley Morcom says onwards and upwards: "It's hard to say we're just going to brush it under the carpet but we've got to be able to move forward because if we don't we'll end up plummeting down through the table. So, we've managed to retain pretty much most of the squad so it's crucial that the rest of the squad stick together and put in a performance this weekend.

"They are very loyal, they are very good. It's a rugby thing as well. There's an immense loyalty thing within rugby so it's good that we've got a place like Redruth which has got loyal supporters as well so hopefully we'll get a good crowd and some money through the gate."

Elsewhere, Launceston travel to top of the table Hartpury.

The Cornish All Blacks are 10th in the table but have a good track record against the National Two leaders.

Our boys have come out on top the last two games there.

Head coach Cliff Rainsford said: "It's a massive bonus and a massive gee up because we know they're not infallible. We know anybody in this league can beat anybody else on the day. It's just a case of getting your game together on the day. We've proved we can do it in the past so we have to take that as a massive positive and take it into Saturday's game.

"At the end of the day we're still looking to control the game and not let them control the game and not let them dictate to us. We've got quite a good record against them in recent times so we'll be looking to try and maintain that sort of form on Saturday"
