Our first taste of Cup Rugby. After the bye in the first round we travel north to the undefeated Rugeley which will be one of the toughest game of the season they are high on confidence and scoring tries for fun, but so are we.

As with this level of rugby, changes are made, but unlike most I will comment on who's here not who's missing.

We welcome back to the club Ronan Jones who had a brief spell away and is joined on the back row by Ben Hands and Andrew Haughian after a few weeks off. All will bring speed and power to attack and defence.

A reshuffle in the back line sees Australian import Charlie Hands move from 8 to 12 and Gareth Windsor to 13. On the bench comes in Ross Harrison for his first game of the season and Scott Waite also who could also make his debut. He's always at training and watching, if not playing, and puts his hand up to play for other teams when short and deserves his spot in the squad.

Coach Matt Cappell
