Having made the arduous (successful) journey down to Herefordshire last week the Green Machine are at home on Saturday to old friends Stourbridge. We have played Stour virtually every year since 2001. If we didn’t meet in the league then we played a pre-season friendly. As with Luctonians this is one of the last meetings with the Midlands club as we will be in separate divisions after the reorganisation at the end of this season. Luctonians and Stourbridge going into National 2 Midlands whilst we stay in 2 North.
We have had many great battles against Stour over the years and this week should be no different. Dale are committed to a famous brand of rugby that we expect at the Avenue. 15-man rugby; exciting to watch and exhilarating to be part of on the pitch. Anything can happen in the next half hour!!!
It is certainly worth getting down to the Avenue and joining in the fun. KO is 3pm but there are things occurring in the clubhouse before and after the match.
