A big day at the Wheats as we welcome Tenbury RFC to the Stade for the Quarter Final of the Midlands RFU Junior Vase.

Both sides come into the fixture with 100% records for the season! Tenbury have maximum points from 3 league games in Midlands 5 West (North) and have beaten Wheats league rivals Greyhound and Claverdon on their way through this competition. Wheats have maximum points from 6 league wins and sit top of Midlands 4 West (South) and have beaten Rugeley and had a home walk over v Bedford Swifts to progress to the quarter final.

This sets up a huge game for both clubs and should make for a great day at the Stade with £2 a pint from 1pm until the full time whistle!!!

Team News

A few changes for the Wheats from last weeks away win v Pershore.

2 changes in the pack this week with Richard Saunders coming in at prop and Ben Hands onto the flank. Wheats have been strong up front this season and will look to dominate again this week!

A few changes in the back line from last week. Sam Eaton and Richard Lowe have been rotating to great effect this season but no Lowe this week or for a few weeks after his hernia op in the week. Sam Eaton partners up with best mate Gareth Windsor at halfback after an injury to fly half Clark McCallum last week. With Windsor moving from fullback speedster Jamie Hutton moves from wing to fullback and Lewis Faulkner comes in on the wing. The strong running centres of Huw Edwards and James Hancox will look to cause havoc again!

Another really strong set of replacements this week to make a huge impact on the game. We welcome back Max Goodyer from his 6 months away in Greece and Marc Rubery who will make his first appearance of the season.

Kick off is at 14:15 and remember its £2 a pint from 13:00. Get down and support the boys as they continue the road to Twickenham.
