RUGBY UNION: Chinnor seeking stability
CHINNOR add prop Andy Berry and back-row forward Evan Sawyer to their squad for the trip to Lydney in National 2 South.
Having defeated likely promotion contenders 36-21 Worthing last week, Chinnor climbed to sixth in the table, just five points off second.
But head coach Jason Bowers said: “For us, it is all about sustainability and stability in National 2.
“We can’t look beyond that really.
“The more games you win, the higher up the league you go, but we know there are some really tough games to come.
“All we want to do is win more than we lose.”
Bowers added: “We had a really good win against Worthing last week.
“What we need to do this week is back that up.
“Lydney are a decent established side in this league.”
Leaders Henley Hawks are without as game as they were due to visit Rugby Lions, who were expelled from the league before the season started due to financial problems.
Chinnor (v Lydney, away): from Colver, Gray, Goode, Stoop, Fielding, Cathcart, Jones, Hopwood, Winpenny (capt), Stock, Berry, Holyland, Whelan, Pickett, Mowbray, Smith, Gilbert, Sawyer, Hastings, Wood, Seymour, Kava.
