Back-to-back wins the target for Blues

Chichester RFC are going all out to record back-to-back wins for the first time this season – and will be hoping to be inspired by England’s world cup heroes.

 

Blues are currently seventh in London One South after winning four and losing four of their opening eight games of the season.

 

But with a third of the campaign gone Director of Rugby Paul Colley will be looking for more consistency from his side.

 

After beating Cobham 23-20 in a hard-fought contest last time out, Blues now head north to Medway tomorrow (3pm).

 

With their opponents sitting fourth, Chi know they will be in for a tough match.

 

But they will hope to draw inspiration from England, whose match against South Africa in the World Cup Final will be shown at Oaklands Park before the team head north to the Kent estuary.

 

They will hope for a similar start to last week when they began well against Cobham.

 

Two tries in the first half in extremely wet and windy weather gave them a good 17-3 lead heading into the break.

 

Conditions were so bad the home team needed to change kits mid-game.

 

Chi kept their stranghold on the game though and two further penalties were enough to seal a four point victory, which lifted them above their opponents in the standings.

 

The game was extra special for Harry Seaman, who made his 100th appearance for the 1st XV.

 

Having come up through the mini and juniors he made his first team debut against Dover in September 2012.

 

This season he is proving to be a utility player with appearances at scrum half, centre, winger, full back and flanker.

 

In Hampshire Premier, Bognor will be looking to make it three wins from win when they welcome Farnborough to Hampshire Avenue tomorrow.

 

The Purple and Greens won a narrow contest away at Alresford last time out, edging out the home side 7-6.

 

That victory lifted Bognor to seventh in the standings, with bottom side Farnborough next up for a side who are starting to find their stride.

 

The club will be opening its doors at 7.30am on Saturday for breakfast for the World Cup Final with all welcome.
