The two unbeaten sides in the Ravenscroft Manx Trophy go head-to-head when Douglas Celts host Ramsey at Port-e-Chee.

Matthew Meechan’s Ramsey side are two from two and top the table, albeit at an early stage in the competition. Dan Richmond and Brandon Atchison have ninety points between them after just two games and Ramsey are clearly playing well. Douglas brushed aside Vagabonds 31-5 in their only outing, but have experienced a manpower shortage which led to the postponement of their other scheduled match.

There are some changes to the Ramsey line-up this week. With Tom Moffatt out with a broken wing, Dan Bonwick moves to ten. Dave Keenan moves to centre to cover and Rory Nicholson gets a start in the back row. Jared May continues to fill in for Eddie Lord in the second rwo.

At full strength the Celts will be a match for Ramsey but if there’s a sniff of weakness this Ramsey side will find it and punish it.
