Rugby Round-Up

Redruth are at Shelford in League Two hoping to notch another win up on the board.

Last time out the two drew but Reds coach Ashley Morcom says at the business end of the season it is all about points: "We've played some really good rugby over the last two weeks. Obviously last week we played pretty well and came away with the spoils so it's important we try to replicate that form over the last couple of weeks away at Shelford and try and limit our mistakes which will hopefully give us the upper hand.

"Last year we went up there after some bad news regarding the money situation for Redruth and we put a really good performance in, I think we beat them 25 - 5 so we're hoping we can go up there and replicate that this weekend."

Elsewhere Launceston are at Cambridge for a make or break game.

The Cornish All Blacks have slumped to tenth in National Two.

This as head coach Cliff Rainsford is sacked.

But assistant head coach Tom Rawlings is feeling positive: "We're trying to finish off the season which is something that he started and which we started and it was a good run until a few weeks ago and now we've put ourselves in a bit of a rut. So we're going out and we're playing for him. We've tightened up as a squad, you could see that last week and you can see it in training.

"Cambridge, yep, they pose a lot of threats. They've only won a couple more games than us and when you look at the table no-one is really safe bar the top three. If you lose a bit of form then you can find yourself tumbling down the table as we have."
