Fareham Heathens are looking to get back into action as they host Ventnor RFC at Cams Alders. Following the disappointment of being afforded walk overs in both Cup competitions last week, the lads are looking forward to competitive Rugby this weekend, DOR Bernie Rhodes said.
Assistant Head Coach and 1st XV Captain Dave Wheaton said, “once again we have had a positive headache in selection this week as we have strong availability and preparation for all our Senior games has been going well over the last two weeks. We need to build on our 5 pointer at Ellingham & Ringwood and carry that form into this game. Ventnor are rooted to the bottom of the League but we will take nothing for granted as we hit the proverbial banana skin away on the island last year when we played probably our worst game of Rugby for over 3 seasons.
Hooker Andy Burns returns to the squad following an ankle injury sustained in September.
DOR Bernie Rhodes said, “we have seen improvement in our games and building on the defensive work we have done, we need to keep the momentum going and nothing less than 5 points from this game will be seen as success.”
Kick-off is 3.00pm at Cams Alders.
