Match Preview

A proverbial 8 pointer!




“It’s that proverbial 8 pointer again! A win keeps us in touch with the pack, a loss make the hill a little steeper each day” commented manager Luke Burton before the visit of Bridgend Athletic.

“We sneaked a win against the Athletic in October. We need to repeat the 1st half performance of that day and make it last 80 minutes this Saturday” added coach Matthew Bolton. 

For the visit of Bridgend Athletic the Wanderers shuffle the resources again as they try to find that winning combination. In the backs Gareth Cull starts at centre with Mike Stephens replacing Ed Doe at full back. Tim Cronin is fully fit and starts at scrum half. Up front Jack Dando starts at hooker and the young second row Will Higgins gets a place in the boiler house alongside captain Alex Luff. Dan Richards starts at his normal position of number 8 and newcomer Andy Evans joins the squad on the bench.
