Redruth visit Henley Hawks on Saturday knowing only a win will do.

After being on course for promotion The Reds have lacked a bit of form lately.

The hosts are two places above our boys in National Two and have a game in hand.

Forwards coach Ashley Morcom says there is a lot to put right: "We've had a few disappointing performances over the last few weeks. So we're going up to Henley with all guns ablazing really and it's the only way we can keep our hand in I suppose. We've got to go away, we've got to perform and we've got to come away with a one hundred percent performance.

"All we can do now is make sure we win the remainder of our games. If we do that, we can't do no more. So all we've got to do is make sure we go away and give our everything and make sure we come away with that result."

Launceston are pushing to finish the season as high as they can in National Two.

But Head Coach Cliff Rainsford says the basement boys will not be a pushover: "They've had their problems this year to be fair. They are bottom of the league and they've only won one game. But they stick at it and certainly when we went to Barking, although the scoreline doesn't reflect it, they never gave up and they keep trying to the end so you've always got to be wary of things like that.

"Everybody's had upsets this year with lower sides and with higher sides so you've just got to take it as the next game in the series. We had five games last week which we were targeting, Bournemouth being the first one and Barking is the second one so we'll approach that just the same as we approach any other game."
