TEAM NEWS: Wells back and we have a new face in the front row.

10 months ago By Sam Harrison

Clifton Rugby make four changes to the starting XV from last week.

After a heavy defeat last week the Clifton side have regrouped this week and had two very positive training sessions.

Unfortunately due to the horrific injury Charlie Bullimore sustained last week there have been some changes in personnel in the front row. Ricky Cano joins Clifton Rugby on loan from National One side Plymouth Albion. Ricky is no stranger to National Two Rugby having spent a number of seasons at Chinnor RFC, we will give him a warm welcome to the club this Saturday. With regards to Bullimore we can inform you that he has undergone surgery to repair a dislocated and fractures ankle and is now back at home. He is in good spirits and says he'll come back stronger!

More changes are seen in the back row with captain Andy Chesters unavailable due to a head injury last week. He is replaced by Hamish Renwick.

As for the captain arm band, this returns back to Dan Wells who is back fit having suffered a small fractured hand in preseason training. Wells will return to the 12 shirt outside Barnes at 10. On the wing we see Harry Butland make his first start in a lavender jersey. Butland joined us this season having played his rugby at Clevedon in previous years.

Come and join us this weekend for some high quality rugby. Gates open from 12:00pm. Tickets are £10 with concessions prices from £5 per person. Parking is free of charge.
