HENLEY Hawks welcome back skipper Jake Albon for their first trip to basement club Broadstreet in National League 2 South tomorrow

The lock was a late withdrawal for last week’s 20-15 defeat by Tonbridge Juddians due to flu.

So David Hyde is set to return to his prime position at No 6.

The other change up front sees Juan Wunder take over from Tom Emery.

In the backs, Alan Awcock is preferred to Liam O’Neil at centre, with Jack Robinson taking over at full back.

Hawks won the first match between the clubs 41-17 at Dry Leas, so are hoping to complete the double over the Midlanders.

The second-placed hosts returned to winning ways with a 31-29 victory at Redingensians last week.

Scrum half Mike McDonald injured an ankle in that game and is replaced by Alex Gliksten.

Following their 28-19 success over Salisbury, Oxford Harlequins are at home to struggling Swindon in South West East 1.

Matt White moves to lock with Charlie Ward switching to flanker.

Improving Grove face another Oxfordshire derby.

Following their narrow defeat to Banbury, they visit fellow bottom-three club Bicester.

Guy Nicholl and Chris Turner are back from injury for Grove, replacing James Wiltshire (injured) and Luke Matthews (unavailable).

Tom McCarthy comes in at loose head for the unavailable Pat Wiltshire, while James Marshall and Paul Miles return to the squad.

Witney take on high-flying Chippenham at Hailey Road.
