Ampthill welcome Nottingham Rugby back to Dillingham Park as both sides look to record their first wins of the season. With both teams having been on the wrong end of 50 points from Championship favourites Ealing, form would suggest this will be a keenly contested match!
There are two changes in the Ampthill pack. Home crowd favourite Joe Bercis returns on the open side following a minor injury and the number eights rotate with ex-Loughborough Student, Suvwe Obano getting the starting jersey this week.
Paul Turner has shuffled his pack in the backs this week. Club captain Louis Grimoldby returns at 10 and is partnered at 9 by Matt Marsh who impressed against the Knights two weeks ago. Jarryd Sage partners Joe Roberts in the centre with Will Foster starting on the left wing this week as Ampthill look to play on the front foot.
Local boy Matt Collins is amongst the replacements and will make his first appearance this season from the bench.
The Game Kicks Off at 1 pm and is available on a Livestream through the RFU at

Paul Turner comments “Nottingham are an experienced Championship team who are always well drilled. Error count has cost us points on both the pitch and the table in the last two weeks – we’ll need to improve that to get a positive result on Sunday”
