Redruth travel to Shelford hoping to end the season with back-to-back wins.

Our guys beat Westcombe last week.

But boss David Penberthy knows the home side will be after revenge, after the Cornish clinched victory last year: "They've done exceptionally well of late and they're a couple of places below us in the league but certain of National Two status next year, so I'm sure they'll be wanting to do the same as we did last week and go out on a winning note at home. It's going to make it a tough task for the boys".

David is hoping to go out on a high for what will be his last game as Director of Rugby: "The standard in this league has improved dramatically since we left it back in two thousand and five. There's some very, very good teams at the top of the table. There are lots of good players in the league. I'm sure it'll get stronger but it's vital Redruth get stronger with it".

The last game of the season is set to be the toughest for Launceston.

The Cornish All Blacks are at home to top of the table Old Albanians later, after they beat us last year.

But our guys have had four wins on the trot now and Captain Tom Rawlings wants a fifth: "We're mid-table. Some might say we've got nothing to play for, we're not going up and we're not going down, but we want to send Tony Wakes out on a high this season and we want to finish the best we possibly can.

"There aren't any easy games and it is quite tight down at the bottom and up at the top. Looking forward to it and I know all the guys are looking forward to it as well. Getting close to the end of the season and it's important for us to finish on a high".
