Basildon RFC will be looking for their fourth win in five games when they travel to East London RFC in a London Division 3 Essex league fixture.
“We find the top four sides in our league all playing each other this weekend and although it’s early in the league campaign, this weekend will show which sides are serious about their league positions. We played East London twice last year and honours were even with one win each, but they finished above us and rightly so. East London RFC are a very well drilled side, with some very gifted players, they like to play an expansive game and we are expecting a very tough match.
But Head Coach Mark Cushi and Forwards Coach Kris Chesney have prepared the side well this week, training on Tuesday had an edge to it as the boys set about improving our game strategies and competing for a First XV shirt”.
Mark Farrell – First XV Manager.
