The Cornish All Blacks hit the road on the hunt for points.

Launceston are away to Shelford on Saturday afternoon, after losing to Lydney last weekend.

Last time the sides met at Polson Bridge, our lads lost.

Head Coach Cliff Rainford wants to turn the tables.

He said: "At the start of the season, very early on, we were still developing as a side then. I think we're a more rounded side now, and playing alot better rugby. So, yeah there is a little score to settle. If we can get a result this week, then yeah, we won't have done bad out of the three away games.

"It's a mixture of the old, experienced guys and the young guys that have come into the side, have gelled together now as a single unit. That's how the team's developed, as all these players have come together as a side now, rather than new and old."

Redruth are travelling to Canterbury, determined to make up for a home defeat to Hartpury.

The Reds won the last time the two sides met, and are currently sitting at third in the League.

But coach Ashley Morcom said there are no easy games: "I think we took Hartpury a little bit lightly. Hopefully we can carry the last twenty minutes that we played against Hartpury, into the start of the game against Canterbury and there shouldn't be any worries then because they played some really good rugby in the last twenty.

"We don't really know alot about them. We know they've got a tiny pack and they like to move the ball around a bit so all we've got to think about is ourselves. If we can go in an play to the best potential that we can, there's no doubt that we'll come away with a win."
