Wheats look to bounce back after last weeks last second defeat in the cup against Tenbury. The boys will face Redditch at The Stade and look to go 7 out of 7 in the league.

Wheats sit top of the table on 30 points where as Redditch sit 10th with 6 points.

Team News

Some enforced changes this week in the pack. Ben Craig comes in at prop and Guy Maycock into second row. The back row is again strong with Dean Beauchamp, Ryan McSorely and Ben Hands lining up this week.

Sam Eaton and Gareth Windsor continue at half back with Tom Brown partnering James Hancox. Lewis Faulkner is on the wing for the second week running after a great performance last weekend. Hard tackling Mark Rawlings lines up on the other wing with Marc Rubery at fullback both making their starts of the season.

Yet again another strong bench for the Wheats with Rob Clarke making the 1st XV squad for the first time after joining the club in September. Deserved called up from the Stags after some great performances.

Coaches Corner

Selection this week tough again with people putting their hand up in the Stags game last Friday night.

Ben Craig comes back in at his new position loose head where he's loving the experience.
Tom Brown, Marc Rubery and Mark Rawlings all come off the bench to start after strong performances from the bench in recent weeks.
Josh Waring is set to make his first appearance this season from the bench due to work commitments but he played last Friday and was like he had never been away. This will add more competition to the back row area which is as strong as I've known it at the club.

And could be a special day for Robert Clarke who could make his first team debut on Saturday. He turned up in September and has been at training ever since he keeps working hard and this is his reward for that commitment.

Kick off is at 14:15 get down and support the boys!
