Canterbury v Blackheath – Team News

Posted by

It’s the first of Blackheath’s Kent derby matches tomorrow, as the Club travel down the A2 to Canterbury for their first ever league meeting with the City side.

Newly-promoted Canterbury lost at home 37-14 to their other Kent rivals, Old Elthamian, in their opening match, but they had a superb season last time out on their way to the play-off match, their only defeat at Merton Lane coming against champions Redingensian Rams.

Blackheath will also be looking for a first win after the disappointing showing against Chinnor in which they were probably a little fortunate to only lose by two-points, 17-15, and claim a losing bonus point.

James Shanahan makes two changes to starting front-row, with Harry Fry at hooker and Harry Seward at tight-head, while Andrew Daish is brought in to the second-row.

Kick-off at the Marine Travel Ground is 3.00 pm
