The Cornish All Blacks go into another must win game.

Launceston are at Dings Crusaders, who are also in the bottom four of League Two.

But our boys beat bottom of the table Exmouth last week

Director of rugby Neil Bayliss says he is expecting another tough game: "Everyone knows in this league it's a hard place to go and win. But we know we've got to go up there, we are full of a bit of confidence after the weekend. We closed out a tight game and won it and it's going to be another tight game on Saturday because like us they're fighting for their survival in this league.

"We've got three games left and we need to win all three basically. That's what I want to do, starting with Dings away on Saturday. It's between us two teams at the moment. There are other teams in the mix, obviously we've got that vital game in hand but we've got to go up there full of confidence and play the way we know we can play. "

Elsewhere Redruth host Clifton for their last home game of the season. Reds coach Ashley Morcom is hoping Launceston can do them a favour on the pitch: "It's important we get as many points as we can and hopefully Launceston who are playing Dings this weekend will do us a favour by beating them and then that'll make our final game against Cambridge a lot easier.

"I just hope the fans come along and support the boys. It's important that they hear them and more than ever this weekend because not only is it my last home game it is Craig Bond's last home game as he's retiring at the end of the season and we've got two guys who are reaching the milestone of a hundred games for Redruth so it's going to be a pretty impressive game."
