This week's journey for the Okes is not into the unknown, but is however a lengthy one. Drybrook RFC are the Okes hosts this week, difficult opponents always and especially on their own Mannings Pitch in the Forest of Dean.
The sides have met on four occasions recently in SW 1 before both sides were promoted . Okes only have boasted one victory. Drybrook are a side similar to the Okes, one that relies on homegrown talent and development. Both sides boast a won one, lost one record so far. Drybrook defeated by a much fancied Maidenhead outfit before bouncing back against Newbury last weekend.
The Okes also demonstrated creditable bouncebackability with an excellent home win over Camborne in their first ever level five home fixture. Several of last week's unavailabilities may also return to the squad this week as competition for places hots up. Team news will be announced here later this evening.
Also in action this week are the Colts, at home and the mighty thirds/ legends who commence their campaign with a trip to the Bude seaside. All sides would love your support, so wherever you are going this Saturday..cheer on your chosen side.."Come On You Okes!"
