The Cornish All Blacks are travelling to Bournemouth on Saturday, on the hunt for points.

Launceston are back in action after beating Lydney 17-12 two weeks ago.

So far this season, the side have won just one of their fixtures away from home.

Captain Tom Rawlings admitted they tend to perform better at Polson Bridge.

He said: "Yeah, we would like to find some better form on the road. We have come unstuck a few times, but saying that, we've found a different life to our game and a real boost throughout the last couple of weeks and the last few games.

"We want points again, we want to keep climbing the table, it's important that we do so. We've got a big run of games coming up, including Bournemouth this Saturday. We've obviously recharged batteries and we're ready to go again and kickstart this Saturday's game with a big performance."

Meantime, Redruth are also facing an away clash, against Shelford.

It comes after their convincing 21-0 victory over Dings Crusaders last weekend.

Club Secretary Roger Watson, said: "It's always tricky when you're a long way away. I think you're away from your home support and you know, over the years, we've never travelled well. We travel with a full squad generally, but it's a psychological thing as well.

"We know Shelford are going to be tricky side, they've had a great record. You know, you're never going to win the league at this stage of the season but we want to be there amongst the contenders and a win would certainly put us in a good place for that to happen."
