Chinnor are back in action when they travel to Hartpury College on Saturday (kick-off 3.30pm).

The black-and-whites have had an extra week off since their last outing, a dramatic 35-34 win over Redruth at Kingsey Road.

It was only after a Redruth conversion attempt sailed wide that a 13 man Chinnor could truly celebrate holding out for the win. Outgoing boss, Jason Bowers, has taken Chinnor to new heights this season and they are on course for their highest ever finish in the 50-year history of the club.

Chinnor sit sixth in the SSE NL2 South but face a stern test against fourth placed College on Saturday. The second XV have also discovered their opponents in the Oxfordshire Cup Final will be Oxford University Greyhounds.

The Greyhounds were given a walkover by Wallingford in the semi-final.

Chinnor will face the Oxford side on Sunday April 21 at Iffey Road (kick-off 3.30pm).
