It’s a busy weekend for Weston-super-Mare rugby club with their squads looking to close out their seasons in winning form.

Weston-super-Mare have two home games remaining to complete their Regional 1 South West campaign starting with the visit of Ivybridge on Saturday March 23, kick-off at 2:30pm.

In the pack Sam Coles starts at loosehead prop, Gary Carpenter moves to hooker, skipper Tom Sugg switches to the second row, Jay Davis moves to No.8 with Callum Kingscott at openside flanker.

The one change in the backs sees Huw Morgan returning at outside centre.

When the two sides met at Cross-in-hand in December, Weston led 27-23 but Ivybridge regained the lead thanks to two Matthew Grieveson penalties to set up a tense final five minutes which saw George Nuttycombe spoilt an impeccable afternoon of kicking by being off-target with a late penalty.

Weston United have two games on the road to play in the Counties 2 Somerset league this season starting with Saturday’s trip to face Huish Tigers, kick-off 2:30 pm, with three places and six points separating the two sides.

With just ten Clubs in the Counties 4 Somerset South league, Weston Athletic’s season comes to an end on Saturday with a visit Charter Way to face Wells 2ndXV.

There is action at the Recreation Ground too, where the Weston U15s take on Pontypridd U15s in the Malcolm Hughes Memorial game at 12:30pm.

The wider family of the late Pontypridd-born Malcolm Hughes includes one of Weston U15’s players and one of their coaches.
