RUGBY UNION: Chinnor step into unknown
CHINNOR break new ground when they visit Ampthill in National 2 South tomorrow, with head coach Matt Goode not sure what to expect.
Ampthill were promoted after winning National 3 Midlands and have made a solid start to sit three points behind Chinnor in seventh.
“I don’t think we have played them before,” said Goode.
“I know a couple of guys who play there and I have been following their progress.
“We don’t really know what they are capable of “But they have Maama Molitika at No 8. He was at Cardiff Blues previously and poses a real threat.”
Will Millett should revert to fly half, with Sam Angell coming in at centre.
Prop Nathaniel Titchard-Jones and hooker Edd Vickers are doubts, but utility back Ricky Hopwood returns after illness.
Tom Allen is back for Henley Hawks’ home clash with Richmond in National 1, but fellow centre Danny Wells is still out with a knee injury.
Charles Incledon moves from inside centre to the left wing.
Richmond’s coach is former Oxford University director of rugby Steve Hill, who led them to promotion in 2012.
Henley Hawks (v Richmond, home): O’Neill, Robinson, Nutt (capt), Allen, Incledon, Comben, Carter, Milford-Scott, Brennan, Penny, Clements, McNally, Dwyer, Long, Stapley. Reps: Steventon, Hadfield, Woodward, Haynes, Baggett.
