Redruth RFC are hoping to get back to winning ways at home on Saturday.

The Reds are hosting Dings Crusaders at the Recreation Ground.

It comes after defeat to Hartpury College in their last match brought their unbeaten run to an end.

Head Coach Adrian Edwards admitted a win would be a confidence boost. He said: "We've won seven, so it proves hopefully that most of the systems and things are working and everyone's kind of happy. I think everyone, they've set themselves high standards and they want to get back to that again this week. But nobody's going to let you do that easily, and certainly Dings won't. We're going to have to scrap for every point this weekend.

"Well, we've got a tough month. You know, away to Shelford and then home to Henley. The next month's going to be really tough anyway, and this is another tough game. So, without thinking too many games ahead we've just got to take this challenge on this weekend. We've certainly not created any crisis or panic from last week."

The Cornish All Black are not in action this weekend.

Meantime, the Cornish Pirates are expecting a tough test as they welcome Rotherham to the Mennaye on Sunday.

Our lads are hungry for points after a draw against Moseley.

The Titans are coming off a win.

Assistant Coach Harvey Biljon said he was hoping for a homecrowd boost: "Yes, there's lots to play for but we're back at the Mennaye in front of our home support, wanting to perform. Unfortunately last week, you know, we didn't get the result we wanted. It was a draw, but we need to build on that, and build on our record that we're building at home.

"We obviously want to be doing better; we got a draw against Moseley, we lost in the very last play of the game against London Scottish. So, those games that have been away from home, we need to learn from them. But overall, I think alot to build on, and we're getting there."
