First Team

Other games in N2S this weekend

Barking v Bridgwater & Albion

Amid rumours of financial problems and sponsors deserting them, Barking return to Gorsebrook to take on basement club B&A. On paper a comfortable 5 point win here for Barking.

Barnes v Southend

4th placed Southend will be too strong for Barnes. Although Southend have only won twice on the road, Barnes Elms will be a happy hunting venue for them. Away win and all 5 points.

Clifton v Westcombe Park

Interesting game. On league position Clifton should take this one, their home form is good. but I have a hunch – very painful too. Closer than expected home win, maybe Coombe to get a point as well.

Lydney v Rosslyn Park

Park on form after last week’s demolition of Richmond at the Rock. Lydney’s form against the top four teams has only produced a loosing bonus point against Clifton!  No points here for them either. Away win with all the points

Richmond v Henley Hawks

The Hawks could run Mond close – A turnaround for Henley? Maybe – Let’s go for an away win, a close one!

Shelford v Dings Crusaders

7th placed Shelford take on 8th placed Dings!! Difficult to talk about form when there has been so little rugby , but Dings don’t travel too well, unless its to Lydney! Shelford to be too strong at home in my humble opinion, they have only dropped points to Clifton and Southend. Home win, but maybe Dings come away with a bonus point.
