TAUNTON Titans face their toughest test so far this season as they travel to National 2 South leaders Cinderford tomorrow.

The hosts have won 26 of their 27 matches so far this season, including 33-14 in the reverse fixture at the Commsplus Stadium in December.

Taunton paid for a slow start against Cinderford's fellow high-flyers Chinnor last weekend, eventually losing 56-43, so will be hoping they can stay in the game for longer this time around.

Elsewhere, Cornwall & Devon leaders Wellington are looking to keep their title bid on course as they welcome struggling Hayle to the Athletic Ground.

The Cornish side are languishing near the relegation zone so once again rhe R&Bs will have be prepared for a tough battle as Hayle try to put some distance between themselves and the teams below them.

In Somerset Premier, Wiveliscombe have had three weeks without a match so the players cannot wait to return to action at Nailsea and Blackwell on Saturday. 

The North Somerset team, who are in fifth position in Somerset Premier, will provide a good test for second-placed Wivey, who go into the weekend sat seven points below leaders Gordano with a game in hand.

The West Somerset team will be cheered on by a large contingent of past players on an away day jolly!
