CHARD RFC's 1st XV travel to Cornwall this weekend for a tough fixture against St Austell.

The hosts are third in the table, with 15 wins from 19 matches so far this season, while Chard are in mid-table going into the weekend.

Chard pushed second-placed Devonport Services close last weekend, going down 17-10 after an excellent team display, but they have struggled on their travels this season and it will require a similar level of performance to try and get a result in Cornwall.

Chard 2nd XV host Yeovil 2nds (2.30pm) and Chard 3rds are without a game, but a combined Chard & Crewkerne Veterans team will go to Portland Prison to play the Young Offenders.
