Third-place Chi begin the new year on familiar turf at Havant

CHICHESTER RFC will have a familiar foe to defeat if they are to start 2018 off with a bang.

 

Scott Ashley’s side make the short trip to Havant tomorrow (2pm) seeking a victory that will keep them in touch at the top of London Division One South.

 

Chi went into the winter break in third place, seven points behind league leaders Medway, after a bruising 24-17 victory over Tottonians.

 

That was the Blue and Blues’ fourth victory in a row – a streak which began with a win away at the side leading the pack at the halfway mark of the campaign.

 

Tomorrow’s task will not be easy, though, with Havant sitting just one place below Chi in the table.

 

The return fixture at Oaklands Park earlier in the season ended in a 30-17 victory for the home side. Win the return, which is the Blues’ first trip in the league to Hook’s Lane since 2013, and they will record a much-needed double.

 

* Bognor RFC travel to Sandown & Shanklin tomorrow (2pm) looking to close the gap on league leaders United Services Portsmouth. The Purple and Greens are currently second in Hampshire One.
