Today we welcome to Silver Leys second-placed Darlington Mowden Park. After a fast and unbeaten start to the season, DMP have recently managed to maintain their 100% home record, but have been struggling to translate this into their away fixtures having lost the last 3 at OAs, Blackheath and Esher. There is no doubt, though that they are a strong side, as evidenced by a home victory in between over Plymouth.
A player to look out for is fullback, Grant Connan, a member of Newcastle Falcon's Academy and a big threat from fullback.
Although it's fair to say that even last time's improved performance against Esher failed to match the high standards that our team has been achieving pretty consistently away from home, they will hopefully be lifted by the visit of a side sitting 7 points above them in the table. Both sides are likely to be refreshed after last week's rest, so we can look forward to both sides coming out hard for what will undoubtedly be a hard-fought contest. COYB!
