Rugby Round Up

Redruth are away at Chinnor on Saturday, looking for a points boost.  

Last time the two met The Reds thrashed them 44 points to 14.

But the hosts are riding high at their best league level ever.

Captain Chris Fuca said the lads are taking nothing for granted: "They're not going to let us shift a score like that at home so we've got to go up there and be really aware that we've got to be on our game. They've only lost one game at home this year and that was Hartbury and they've beaten Worthing themselves, so we can't take them lightly."

He added it is too early to be thinking about things like promotion:

"We're just trying to build in the good form that we've had recently, because we've had a few games off with no continuity so this week's a chance to build on that and the last few games that have been really good for us."

Elsewhere, Clifton visit Polson Bridge and a Launceston team gunning for a win.

The Cornish All Blacks want to turn round a recent losing streak.

But last time the two met our boys lost.

Number 8 Josh Lord said: "It's massively important. It was obviously a very disappointing result last weekend and last time we played Clifton we underperformed up at their place as well, so this weekend is huge for us as a team and as a club.

"On paper we do look the better side, but we don't play rugby on paper. In recent weeks I think maybe our discipline's let us down, particularly last week, which is something that as a squad we need to get a handle on and learn that we can't act the way that we do and expect to win games."
