The victory saw Hawks move to just three points off top spot.

They make just one change, George Primett coming in at prop with Brad Cook dropping to the bench.

Chinnor are looking to bounce back when they make the trip to Old Elthamians in National League 1.

Captain Carl Kirwan is expected to return after sitting out last weekend’s fixture.

“We’ve been doing a lot of analysis from the weekend,” said backs coach Ricky Khan.

“Myself, Dan (George, head coach) and Matt (Williams, director of rugby) have got a strategy of what we will do next.

“We’re not sitting back on our laurels and that’s the most important thing. ”

Khan added: “We’re massively disappointed with the weekend and losing to Rotherham the way we did.

“We did get two valuable bonus points, but really it’s a game we should have won and obviously we’ve got a lot to work on to try to put that right.”
