A BUSY weekend beckons for Dorchester Rugby Club, with home league fixtures for both its first and A XV sides.

The first team, looking for their third victory in a row, welcome Corsham to Surcouf Park tomorrow in the Tribute Southern Counties South (2.30pm).

Dorchester lie in sixth place in the table, with their opponents one place off the foot of the table in 11th.

Last time out the team picked up a last-minute hard-fought victory on the road, showing great spirit and team fight after coming close to letting the win slip away.

Head coach Josh Ovey said: “With almost half of the first XV unavailable for our last fixture, to take five points away from home is testament to the depth of quality we now have in each position.

“This weekend our team is strong allowing us to play people in their preferred positions, and therefore to play to our potential.

“Combe Down was without doubt a great win but we need to show that heart and determination to win every game. It’s fantastic to see yet another product of our own youth teams with Brook Legg making his debut in the backs.”

The front five in the pack remains the same. James Newsam returns at flanker and Freddie Charles reverts back to his preferred position of scrum-half.

Lewis Allan moves out to the wing whilst last game’s man of the match Jamie Morgan continues at outside centre.

Ovey will remind his team to concentrate from the whistle, play for each other and take nothing for granted.

This will be a tough game and the club needs another win to consolidate their standing in the league.

Meanwhile, Dorchester’s A XV entertain Tribute Dorset & Wilts Two South league leaders Lytchett Minster in their fixture.

With the opposition sitting top of the table, even with a bonus-point win the home side cannot overtake them.

However, it would lay down a marker of intent to win at Surcouf Park and set the stall out for the second half of the season and a push for the title.

Captain Matt Fry will pick his strongest side to counter the threat of Lytchett (2.30pm).

With two big league games the club is expecting great support for both teams and the partisan crowd to be vocal in support of both teams.

Sunday morning sees training for the under-six and under-sevens along with the under-16s. On Sunday afternoon the Colts entertain Wimborne with the Ridgeway Roses taking on Trojans II at Weymouth’s Monmouth Avenue.

The Seahorses’ men’s team host North Dorset at Monmouth Avenue in Tribute Dorset & Wilts One South tomorrow (2.30pm).

Also in One South, Puddletown entertain Swanage & Wareham Seconds and Bridport visit Wimborne Seconds.

Seahorses: Comben, Sankey, Davis, Eckersley, Oaksford, Norton, Patsouris-Belcuore, D Bowditch, Barter, Legg, Beynon, Lewendon, M Savage, W Quick, Cummings. Reps: L Savage, Purcell, A Bowditch.
