Redruth travel to Cambridge in National League Two on Saturday.

The Reds have won both of their games so far this season and are hoping to stay on track.

They beat Southend 36-31 and local rivals Launceston 14-13 in the derby.

This season they have two players on loan from the Cornish Pirates and several back from injury.

Coach Steve Larkins says they are feeling positive, he said: "We are pretty confident after our first away trip and a success and win up at Southend, then winning the local derby our confidence is fairly high, we just need to change a couple of things for Saturday like the way we played and our performance and we'll see if we can keep the result the same.

"There has always been a little bit of history with Cambridge and Redruth, they have lost their first two, and I'm sure they are going to come out strong and want to overturn that and want to get a win in their first three, so I'm sure it's going to be a tough encounter, they are generally strong both at home and away."

Elsewhere Launceston welcome Shelford.

The All Blacks have lost both their games so far this season.

The last time the two teams met they beat Shelford 16-6.

Director of Rugby Neil Bayliss said: "We will be the first to admit our discipline cost us the game against Redruth, we have looked at it in training, we have worked on it, and if we cut out those stupid penalties we were giving away we will be much better for it, you need to be whiter than white in this league and we have proved that over the last two games losing by a point.

"Shelford are known for having a big pack, and big ball carriers, they have got a big back row, they are a pretty straight up and down team and I expect nothing else from them on Saturday."
