CHINNOR’S away clash at Rams was postponed due to the freezing weather.

The National League 1 encounter was called off on Friday following a pitch inspection.

The derby was set to be an opportunity to see what Chinnor have picked up during Nick Easter’s first weeks at the club.

The 44-year-old former England player was appointed director of rugby on December 2.

Easter played at three World Cups for England – in 2007, 2011 and 2015 – and was most recently defence and forwards coach at Worcester Warriors.

Chinnor’s home clash with Bishop’s Stortford was set to be the first chance to get a glimpse of Easter’s influence, however that fixture was also postponed.

Easter told the club website: “As far as the rugby is concerned, I think we have been underperforming and not reaching our potential.

“The shackles do now seem to be off and I think the penny has probably dropped the last few weeks.

“The players have shown what they are capable of, but there is a lot more to come.”

Henley Hawks’ home clash with Old Albanian in National 2 East was postponed, as was Oxford Quins’ trip to Royal Wootton Bassett in Regional 1 South Central. Banbury were beaten 82-15 at Maidenhead.

All fixtures in Regional 2 Tribute South Central and Counties 1 Tribute Southern North were postponed.
