Press Release.

RFU County Shield, semi final.

Dorset & Wilts vEssex@BournemouthSaturday 21.05 2011.

Kick Off2.30 pm.

Only theEssexboys now stand between theTwinCountiesand a second successive Twickenham final.

The current Shield holders, Dorset & Wilts. have already brushed aside the challenges ofBerkshireand last weekend Oxfordshire.

Head coach Simon Culley said: “We have only played Essex once since they emerged from the Eastern Counties set up a few years ago and we won that game, but Essex have produced some good players over the years so we are leaving nothing to chance and our approach will be no different to both our pool games. The changes we have made are Alan Manning back to start at prop with Sean Jones dropping back to the bench. Both Lewis Warner and Tom Baldwin return to the bench from unavailability last week. This is a huge match for us as we have come through a strong group and Semis are pressure games. Hopefully we can use the experience from last year to stay calm and play our game”.
