Redruth and Launceston are doing the derby this weekend.

The Reds welcome the Cornish All Blacks after getting their season off to a winning start.

They beat Southend Saxons away last weekend, 36 - 31.

Head coach Steve Larkins said: "It is a critical time of year for both teams. You want to get off to a good start in the league and you want to, you know, get a couple of wins within those first three or four games just to kind of settle yourself and then you're not playing catch-up for the rest of the year."

But Launceston are playing catch-up, after last week's frustrating defeat at home to Bishops Stortford.

The Cornish All Blacks pulled it back in the second half, but lost by a point at Polson Bridge.

Forwards' coach Mike Lewis said: "If you win by a hundred or lose by ten or lose by one like we did last weekend you'll learn some lessons and hopefully, the ones we've taken on board are the ones that can take us forward. Instead of losing by a point we may be able to push on and win by a point this weekend but it's a big local derby so you never know what's going to happen."

That match kicks off at 3pm on Saturday.

Elsewhere, the Cornish Pirates welcome London Scottish after last weekend's home defeat to Yorkshire Carnegie.
