Match preview

In the absence of the ever present and live-wire Louis Pawlett, longtime Abbey faithful Nathan Tovey steps up for the Abbots, when they take on Oxford Harlequins 3rds this Saturday at Rosehill.

The Abbots are looking to make right last week's defeat to Newbury and skipper Treacle Knights wants a response from everyone one of them on Saturday. The side boasts once again a load of 1st XV caps and experience and will look back upon last week's 2nd half performance when they dominated territory and possession.

Last week's 2nd half backrow debutant Gerhard Sutherland makes his first start at 12 and Luke Daniels comes in at tight-head after injury in the 1st XV's win against Buckingham in the season opener.

All the guys have braved the weather thrown to them this week which has been commendable and will be looking to impose themselves on the gain-line in defence or attack as they have shown against the apparent Storm Barney.

Last week's narrow loss was a humbling loss but this team has had some very good performances this season and will need to try and recall on that belief to try and get over the line.
