Match preview

The Abbotts take on Drifters at home this Saturday looking to continue on an upwards trend after last weekend's improved performance away to Marlow. The side boasts a load of 1st team experience and all the players involved will be looking to keep the heat on the first team players by putting in good performances.

Treacle Knights makes his first appearance as this season's Abbotts' skipper after being called up to the 1st team on the last two weekend, he is partnered by another of last year 1st team regulars Chris Shaw in the second row. The front row all have a wealth of 1st XV experience and will be looking to put a marker down for the game as well performances that will see them challenge for 1st team selection.

The backs are more settled with only John Holden coming in for Matt Eldridge is the only change. Players like Steve Warwick, Will Handley and Jules Greenaway will play 1st team at some point this season but the most pleasing thing is that players like Tom Hogan and Louis Pawlett are starting to show a lot of promise.

Last week the side felt they were unlucky to come away with a draw as they felt they had the beating of Marlow II, this week at home Abbotts' under Treacle will look to go one better.
