Rugby fans are spoilt for choice again this weekend. As well as all the Rugby World Cup action, there’s three home league games for our 1st XVs too.

Old Laurentians will be hoping for a better scoreline than their opening matches, when they host Kettering at Fenley Field, Lime Tree Avenue.

Also in Midlands 1 East, Newbold are hoping to build on their excellent start to the season when Matlock are the visitors to Parkfield Road.

Rugby Welsh also have a home league game, in Midlands 5 West (South) against Trinity Guild at Alwyn Road, Bilton.

In Midlands 3 East (South) Rugby St Andrews have a trip to Oundle and in West (South) Rugby Lions will be keen to put last week’s 28-27 defeat by Old Coventrians behind them when they travel to league leaders Old Leamingtonians.
