Rugby: League Two Round-up

Redruth are back in action after nearly a month away from the pitch.

The bad weather and a week's break have left the Reds chomping at the bit.

They are away at London Irish Amateurs hoping to pick form back up.

Forwards coach Ashley Morcom told Pirate FM: "We've lacked a little bit of momentum and obviously with such a big break in playing time it's hard to get back into it and get going. But we've been training hard and the guys have really bought into it and what it's all about and hopefully we can go away this weekend and put a good performance together.

"We're keen to get back on the field and start playing. Obviously we can't do anything about the weather and the last weekend was the free weekend anyway but the boys are chomping at the bit and ready to go."

Elsewhere, Launceston will want to get back to winning ways after a big weather break and that defeat to Ampthill.

The Cornish All Blacks welcome Southend.

The visitors are on a losing streak.

But head coach Cliff Rainsford says that means nothing: "You can't read anything into that. I think there's only 14 points from relegation to 5th/6th in our league at the moment so you have to be very wary and very careful about reading too much into that sort of thing.

"We've just got to concentrate on our game. Yeh, the weather's been a bit of an upset. But, we'll just go out and we'll try and put in the performance we know we can give and if we do that hopefully the result will go our way as well."
