Basingstoke RFC gearing up for pre-season visit of Bracknell
BASINGSTOKE RFC return to action on Saturday, when they host Bracknell in what is currently scheduled to be their only pre-season friendly.
The squad have spent the last week taking part in intra-squad matches as their preparation for a return to National Three London moves through the gears.
Next up is their first game against another club as National Three South West side Bracknell made the trip to Down Grange on Saturday (kick-off 3pm).
Like Basingstoke, the Berkshire side are newcomers to the fifth tier of English rugby, having won South West One last season, so the teams should be evenly matched.
’Stoke director of rugby, James Croker, said: “Training has been going really well but everyone is starting to itch for games and we are all looking forward to getting out there.
“It’s a chance to try out the things we have been working on, see how we go with the new scrum laws and get 80 minutes under our belts.”
