FORMER Premiership star Junior Fatialofa has been appointed Chinnor’s new head of community.

The ex-centre is a popular figure at Kingsey Road following a three-year spell as a player and coaching roles with the age-group and senior teams.

The 41-year-old, who represented Wellington in New Zealand as well as Exeter Chiefs and Bristol during his career, brings a plethora of experience to his new position.

He said: “It is important for me to reconnect with everyone at Chinnor, especially with the youth section which is the lifeblood of the club, as well as all of the volunteers, members and sponsors that put the community at the heart of everything they do.”

Chinnor return to National League 1 action this Saturday after a week off, with second-placed Caldy the visitors to Kingsey Road.

Meanwhile, the games do not get any easier for Henley Hawks in National 2 South.

After travelling to second-placed Redruth last weekend, Luke Allen’s side go to table-toppers Esher.

In South West 1 East, Oxford Quins will look to back up their great work off the pitch with more success on it.

The club collected £800 for a fundraiser set up by ex-All Black Malakai Fekitoa in aid of the Tongan islands hit by a tsunami.

Academy coach Keni Fisilau and senior backs coach Vili Hakalo have family there, who have been confirmed safe and well.

Quins go to Sherborne this weekend, while league leaders Banbury Bulls host Grove and Witney entertain Buckingham.

Bicester host Stow on the Wold in Southern Counties North, Wallingford go to High Wycombe and Gosford All Blacks visit Shipston on Stour.
