The Cornish All Blacks are facing a tough test at home.

Launceston are hosting second in the league side Henley Hawks later.

The opposition are unbeaten on their home ground, but have lost several away clashes. They are the top point scorers in National League Two South.

Launceston are coming off two wins, and are eager to get back into action after last weekend's match was postponed because of the cold weather.

Tom Rawlings, Captain and Assistant Coach, said: "It's going to be a tough encounter this weekend. Saying that, we played quite well up at theirs, so we're not going to fear them. We are aware of what they're capable of, and what they're going to come down, what they're going to throw at us, but we want to go out there, we want to play, we're on good form at the moment. Yeah, we're ready and we're waiting.

"We've got home comfort, we've got our supporters there and our big crowd. I am confident that we can do a job on them, but it's going to be a big task, it's going to be a mammoth task. They're not second in the league for nothing, they're a very, very good outfit."
