WEYMOUTH & Portland co-coach Simon Litster has wished for a “nice Christmas present” when the Seahorses entertain Wimborne Seconds at Monmouth Avenue in Wadworth 6X Dorset & Wilts One South tomorrow (2pm).

Litster’s men put up a strong examination of leaders Swanage & Wareham on Saturday, suffering a 34-18 loss but in no disgrace having edged the second half 12-10 on points.

Speaking to Echosport, Litster hopes to achieve a mirrored level of performance against the Minstermen in his side’s final game before the festive period.

He said: “They play a similar style to Swanage, they like running the ball. We’ll have our work cut out, definitely – we’re not counting our chickens.

“If we put in a performance like we know we can, and like the second half against Swanage, it could be a nice Christmas present because it’s the last game before Christmas.

“A win would be really good. That would set us up for the second half of the season.

“Wimborne are not an easy side, but we’ve made improvements. They can’t expect to be gifted a win. We’ll make them work for it and hopefully deny them the win.”

The Seahorses have no fresh injury concerns ahead of the clash.

Elsewhere, at the Terrace Playing Fields, Sherborne Rugby Club, currently sitting on top of the Southern Counties South table, play host to fifth-placed Devizes in a double header (2pm).

The two clubs elected to postpone their Dorset & Wilts Cup final and allow the winners of the league clash to also lift the knockout trophy.
