HENLEY Hawks face a major test this weekend as they travel to Redruth in National 2 South.

Two of the division’s top five do battle in Cornwall, just three weeks after the sides played out an entertaining 21-21 draw at Dry Leas.

Redruth led National 2 South for most of the season until Christmas and are still right in the mix for promotion, sitting third – just four points off leaders Clifton.

Henley are nine points further back, so will not want to lose any more ground as the end of the campaign draws closer.

Scrum half Will Crow and hooker Tom Emery both return to the side as head coach Luke Allen makes just two changes to the starting line-up that beat Westcliff last weekend.

Samson Adejimi, who scored two tries against the basement boys, returns to bench duties.

Banbury Bulls are four points clear at the top of South West 1 East heading into Saturday’s trip to Beaconsfield.

The north Oxfordshire side won 34-3 at second-bottom Frome last weekend to maintain their lead over Oxford Quins, who go to Somerset this weekend.

Grove will see Saturday as a chance to leapfrog Frome, who they trail by one point at the foot of the table.

They are at home to eighth-placed Marlborough.

Meanwhile, Witney also have an away tie as they travel south to face Newbury Blues.

In Southern Counties North, third-bottom Bicester host Thatcham and Gosford All Blacks go to High Wycombe.

Wallingford visit Milton Keynes, who sit directly above them.
