Bude Away

The Chiefs will make the short journey into North Cornwall for their second away trip in as many weeks.

After their victory at Torquay Bideford will have to be on their guard against Bude.

Bude come of the back of a tough game with Truro who we all know are a strong team at home. Bude lost the game 38-8. Bude are always a tough team to play against their forwards are more than a match for any team in our league. Last season saw the game played in terrible weather conditions but both teams put in good displays of attacking rugby, hopefully this weekend will be a bit better allowing more running rugby for the spectators

Bideford will have to force some changes due to weddings but have been able to replace like for like into the roles if not strengthen certain areas.

Team selection has been very tough and it will be finalised on Thursday pending some minor injuries. Stefan James is expected to make his début in the squad as is David Evans both new signings to the club.

As always it was great to see the travelling support who often seem to sound more vocal that the home crowd and the lads appreciate it massively and look forward to seeing familiar faces this weekend.
