Rugby Round Up

Redruth have revenge on their mind as they welcome Hartpury College on Saturday.

 

Last time the two met our boys got a bit of a drubbing.

 

Reds coach Ashley Morcom says it is all to play for: "Revenge is very dominant in our thoughts as to how we're going to attack this weekend obviously because of what happened up at their place.

 

"If Hartpury win they'll jump ahead of us so it is very tight. We're all fighting for those top two spots which makes it fun for the rest of the season."

 

On Sunday the Cornish Pirates welcome Moseley to The Mennaye, hoping for a home boost.

 

Our boys have lost their last three matches and a place in the Championship play offs is now out of their hands.

 

But Head Coach Ian Davies says it does mean some of the pressure is off: "We didn't play particularly well in the second half of the last home game so the boys are determined to put a bit of a show on and to a certain extent, because our destiny is out of our hands. now we can play with a bit of a freer spirit.

 

"Many people could argue that's how you should play the game from day one but we've got to be horses for courses a little bit. We've had to cut our cloth accordingly this year. With our recruitment over the summer we may evolve again. So we've got to make sure that we are still play winning rugby, but the right way of rugby."
