EVESHAM RFC will be hoping home comforts can help their bid to overhaul the team directly above them in Midlands Two West (South) on Saturday.

Fourth-placed Earlsdon will be the visitors to Albert Road with Evesham sat fifth, trailing by seven points going into the clash.

It seems set to be a stern examination after Earlsdon ran close runaway leaders Droitwich in their last outing, losing 26-20.

Revenge will be on Pershore’s minds ahead of their Midlands Four West (South) showdown with Bedworth.

The reverse fixture saw the men from Piddle Park trounced 65-8 by the team that sits second in the table.

In Gloucester One, Bredon Star will also be looking to make amends when they journey to Gloucester-based Old Cryptians.

Eighth-placed Star were sank by the same opponents 40-22 on their own patch back in November. Cryptians sit sixth in the standings with a nine-point cushion over Bredon ahead of the weekend.
