Redruth welcome Canterbury to The Rec hoping to get a home win back under their belt.

The Reds are in a bit of a slump of form.

That and a break because of the weather means they have not won for over a month.

Head coach Ashley Morcom said: "This weekend is crucial. Obviously we set a target at the start of the year that we were going to win all of our home games so we're struggling to do that now obviously. It's important that we get off to a good start for the rest of the season."

It is the first game out for Redruth since Ashley announced he was stepping down as head coach at the end of the season. He has reassured fans over the future: "I'm not walking away from Redruth. I'm still hoping that whoever we sign as the new head coach that they will accept me on the coaching staff. I just haven't had the time that I thought I would have, it's been a stressful year and I need to put my family first."

Elsewhere in National Two Launceston take on Chinnor.

The Cornish Pirates are at Bristol in the Championship on Sunday.
