Redruth RFC welcome Hertford knowing a win will lift them clear of the relegation dogfight.

Last times the two sides met the visitors came out on top.

Director of Rugby Dave Penberthy says he is looking to settle that score and bounce back from their last home match too.

"We've got to put that defeat against Richmond to bed, and there's no better way to do that than to perform. We've had great preparation this week, which has put us in good stead for the game and hopefully we can take that confidence, big crowd there as well which always lifts the players, and have a good day all round."

Dave adds he is hopeful they can maintain their sixth placing in the league: "This will absolutely guarantee it mathematically so it will be nice to do that. But you know, we're targeting the top six finish still, and I think we're about thirteen points clear of the team chasing us but we're about eleven points behind the team above us."

Meantime, Launceston insist they are not dwelling on last weekend's defeat as they welcome Lydney.

The Cornish All Blacks are back at Polson Bridge after losing to Henley.

Last times the League Two sides clashed our lads edged out a win.

Captain Tom Rawlings isn't getting complacent though: "Obviously it is slightly in the back of the mind, but in this league, anything could happen. We've come up against a lot of sides this season, where we've lost by a point, and it's because we've given teams that little incentive to go on and get a couple more points."

"We beat Lydney by a narrow point up at their place. We know they're going to come down to us and they're going to give us a really big test. But we want to finish on a high note, and we want to finish off in style and carry on into next season, so it's got to start this Saturday."
