DORSET & Wilts go in search of their first County Championship win of the season tomorrow when they head to Witney RFC to take on Oxfordshire (3pm).

Despite going down to a 37-18 defeat against Berkshire at Royal Wootton Bassett in their opening fixture, the Twin Counties are still in with a shout of progressing to the semi-finals of the competition.

But they can only do so if they conjure up a convincing victory against Oxfordshire, who beat Berkshire 37-19 last weekend to leave the door open for Dorset & Wilts.

The Dorset & Wilts youngsters scored three tries against Berkshire and were still very much in with a chance of victory after 60 minutes.

However, in chasing the game they left the back door open and shipped points in the final quarter which left a scoreline that flattered their visitors.
