This week sees United Services Portsmouth RFC travel a short distance up the A3 to take on local rivals Petersfield RFC. On the opening weekend of fixtures both sides lost narrowly to rival Hampshire sides, United Services Portsmouth losing to Winchester and Petersfield tasting defeat away at Portsmouth RFC. This weekend presents a great opportunity to kick-start their respective seasons, neither side will be satisfied with anything less than a win.
A pre-match lunch and the close proximity of the fixture should hopefully see good support for both sides. Conditions look good with only cloud cover forecast, it only remains for both sides to put on a great spectacle of rugby.
