Buoyant Blues need two more victories

Chichester RFC know that two more wins is all they need to secure their London One South status for another season.

 

The Blues return to action tomorrow after a rest week, making the short trip along the A27 to play bottom side Hove (2.30pm).

 

With the hosts not winning a single match all season, ninth-place Chi will head into the match as red-hot favourites.

 

With four matches remaining of the campaign and nine points separating Blues and the bottom three, Paul Colley’s side know that two more victories will guarantee their spot in the league for another season.

 

Chi supporters will want to see a repeat of their last performance a fortnight ago.

 

Blues ran in five tries in inflicting a 39-22 defeat on Chobham, a result which condemned the visitors to relagation.

 

That win means they have now won four of their last six in the league.

 

In Hampshire Premier, Bognor will want to keep up the pressure on the top two as they head to Eastleigh IIs tomorrow (TBC).

 

The Hampshire Avenue side – who beat Fareham Heathens 36-7 a fortnight ago – are currently third in the standings, two points behind Sandown & Shanklin.

 

With just three matches of the season to go, Bognor are seeking a bonus point win which will keep up the pressure on the top two.

 

–Chichester’s Jess Breach wrapped up a record-breaking women’s Six Nations as she scored two tries to in England’s 80-0 demolition of Scotland last weekend.

 

The result at Twickenham saw the Red Roses lift the Grand Slam – with the former Chi youngster picking up praise from all quarters for her stellar performances on the wing.

 

The 21-year-old winger scored nine tries in the tournament – and has touched down an extraordinary 20 times in her seven test appearances.

 

The Harlequins player also ended the competition with the highest metres made and the most line breaks.
