A FAMILIAR face will aim to thwart Chinnor’s attempt to bounce back this weekend.

The Thame-based outfit host Cambridge, who are led by former player Richie Williams.

The Welshman has a long history in Oxfordshire, turning out for Grove and spending time as a PE teacher at King Alfred’s School in Wantage.

Both sides contested closely-fought fixtures last weekend, but only one tasted defeat.

Chinnor were beaten 23-20 by Darlington Mowden Park, while Cambridge drew 22-22 with Caldy.

In a twist of fate, Richard Thorpe’s side had drawn with the north west club just seven days earlier.

Chinnor remain fourth in National League 1 and they will be looking to close the gap to the top three.

In National 2 South, Henley Hawks are back at home after last week’s long trip to Guernsey Raiders.

Luke Allen’s side host Bury St Edmunds as they look to maintain a 100 per cent record at Dry Leas.

The head coach makes two changes for Saturday’s game, as wing Reuben Norville returns in place of Iwan Macrae.

Skipper Jake Albon returns to partner Sam Lunnon in the second row.

Henley are tenth in the table and can go above their seventh-placed visitors with victory.

Elsewhere, Oxfordshire’s sides further down the pyramid are back in action after several had a week off last week.

Second-placed Banbury Bulls return to action with a short trip to Grove in South West 1 East.

The hosts are bottom of the table with six defeats from six, while the north Oxfordshire side have won their last three matches.

Oxford Harlequins are a point and a place behind Banbury in the table despite their own 100 per cent record, due to a five-point deduction earlier in the campaign.

They will be given a tough test by Sherborne, who are only behind Quins on points difference.

Elsewhere, Witney visit Buckingham as they look to carry their momentum from last weekend’s victory at Beaconsfield.

The second Oxfordshire derby of the weekend comes in Southern Counties North, where Wallingford are at home to Bicester.

Meanwhile, Gosford All Blacks travel to Berkshire to face Reading Abbey.
