WORCESTER RFC will be looking to bounce back from last weekend's first home defeat of the season when they make the trip to Whitchurch this Saturday in the Regional 2 West Midlands.

Worcester were beaten 22-12 at Westons Field by Hereford last weekend and were replaced by their opposition in second place in the table.

It was just the second defeat of the 2022/23 campaign so far and now they will look to stay in touch with the teams at the top.

Second-placed Hereford go to league leaders Ludlow on Saturday, so Worcester have the chance to cut the gap either way.

Malvern will be looking to maintain their recent good form when they welcome a struggling Evesham to Stadio Spring Lane.

They won their fourth game in a row last weekend away at bottom of the table Droitwich and return home on Saturday to try and keep up their 100% home record.

Malvern currently sit in fifth but could rise as high as third if results go their way, whilst Evesham will be keen to pick up points that would see them move away from the bottom of the table.

Elsewhere, winless Droitwich go to Old Halesonians with hopes of picking up their first points of the campaign after seven defeats from seven.

The other games see Stratford Upon Avon host Crewe & Nantwich and Wolverhampton go to Walsall.
