Redruth Rugby Club are hoping to make it six wins out of six on Saturday.

The Reds are away to Worthing, after winning their first five matches of the season.

The side are sitting in second place in National League Two South, with their rivals in fifth.

Roger Watson, Club Secretary, said: "The boys are confident. Obviously, you know, a great start to the season, five out five. This is going to be perhaps the biggest challenge so far but after another really good performance last week, particularly in the first half, there's a really good mood in the camp.

"Worthing of course, are higher up the League than anyone we've played so far. Indeed, up until last week, they were also unbeaten, so they'll be keen to put that right and bounce back, and obviously on their home patch, they're going to be a tough challenge."

Meantime - the Cornish All Blacks take on Southend at home at Polson Bridge.

Cornish Pirates fans are being urged to get behind the players for their first British and Irish Cup clash.

Our guys are at home to Carmarthen Quins on Sunday, after a frustrating defeat to London Scottish last weekend.

The visitors are new to the competition.

Coach Harvey Biljohn says: "I think it's going to be a really tough fixture. With them new in the competition they're definitely going to be pumped up for it. I'm hoping we get the right support down at the game to get behind the players because it is going to be a very good fixture."
