Weymouth & Portland Rugby Club Press Release.
The Seasiders entertain Salisbury second xv at Monmouth Avenue tomorrow (Saturday 22/10/2016) kick off 3.00pm and will have to be at their very best if they are to add more points to their current league tally of 10.
The visitors currently lie in second place in the Dorset and Wilts division one south league table behind leaders Yeovil while Weymouth and Portland trail them in eighth position with a playing record of played four, won two, losing twice.
First team manager Vaughan Carter said: “It’s going to be a tough game, Salisbury are a quality side and it should be a good test for the lads, but if we can repeat the performance that we produced at Swindon Supermarine last week then we must be in with a chance of victory”.
“We still haven’t named our starting xv, but the squad is listed below, we have a number of players carrying niggling injuries and because we have good numbers available we have decided to give them a rest and draft in a few others to replace them.”
“Young Tom Wildman is following in the footsteps of his dad Mark who turned out for Weymouth throughout the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s making his debut in the front row”.
The Seasiders second team, currently sitting proudly on top of the Dorset and Wilts.
division three south league league table, visit Chapel Gate to lock horns with Bournemouth fifth xv.
On Sunday at Bryanston School Blandford the Dorset & Wilts under 20 county squad are holding a training session in preparation for their forthcoming county championship campaign.
