Esher v Blackheath – Team News

Posted by

Blackheath moved up to second place in National League One with last Saturday’s 39-24 win against Darlington Mowden Park and now look to keep the pressure on Coventry at the head of the table when they make the short journey to Esher tomorrow.

EEEs currently sit in tenth spot having lost their last five games, but Molesey Road has not always been the happiest of venues for Blackheath with just two victories in ten visits, although both those successes have come in the last couple of seasons.

Neale Patrick returns to the second-row, with Tom Stradwick moving to blind-side, and a re-shuffle of the front-row sees Mike Perks (who collected a brace in the same fixture last term) and Kieron Scutt handed starts.

In the backs, Mark Cooke misses out after tweaking a hamstring, so Geoff Griffiths moves to centre, with Tom Chapman back on the wing.

Kick off at Molesey Road is at 3.00 pm, but if you can arrive early, the Heathens are in action (following their excellent victory against Richmond IIs last week) against Esher Cardinals from 1.00 pm.
