DORCHESTER and Weymouth second XVs will be hoping it is third time lucky tomorrow at Coburg Road (2.15pm).

The Dorset & Wilts Two South derby between the sides has already been postponed twice due to a waterlogged pitch.

Weymouth, third in the table, have won their last five in the league but haven’t had the best of luck against their local rivals so far this season.

The county town team got the better of them at Monmouth Avenue back in September before a last-ditch defeat in the shield last November.

Both sides go into tomorrow’s clash in good form with Dor-chester winning their last three, leaving them one place and three points behind Weymouth in the standings.

Meanwhile, also in Two South, Puddletown face arguably their toughest assignment of the campaign to date with a trip to leaders Dorset Dockers (2.15pm).

The Dockers brushed the Villagers aside 53-3 when they met earlier in the season and hold a five-point lead over Lytchett Minster at the top of the tree.

They have won every game this season in the league while Puddletown are looking for a sixth victory this term, however they go into the encounter on the back of an 88-0 drubbing at the hands of Lytchett.

The likes of Bridport, Swanage & Wareham and Dorchester’s first team have got the weekend off to enjoy the first round of the Six Nations.
