North suffered their first defeat in 4 last weekend, and are looking to bounce back.

Puddletown have a 50% win record this season. They lost their last game to Blandford


The Stats

North and Puddletown have only met in the league twice. Both in the 2002/03 season, North ran out comfortable winners back then 79 - 0 and 53 - 0. However, expect a lot tighter contest this weekend.


Couple of Weeks ago we asked the question

North have 3 players in their current playing squad who played against Puddletown back in 2002/03, can you name them?

The answer is David Stickland, Mike Green and Jonathan Hooper.


The Teams

North have a couple changes from last weekend. 4 changes in the pack, Tom Spinney comes in on debut for David Stickland. Thomas Barfoot starts his first match of the season relegating Gavin Bain to the bench. Marcus Randall impressed on his first appearance last weekend and earns himself the starting 6 shirt and Brandon Ward in welcomed back into the 8 shirt after a week off.

There are also 4 changes in the backs, Jonathan Hooper comes in for Henry Lunn at 13. Whilst there is wholesale changes in the back 3, Tom Bridger Chilvers is given the 15 shirt, Tom Rose returns to the wing and Owen Tiltman makes his debut on the other wing.


Possibly the heaviest bench in the clubs history. They probably all qualify for Route one.… Eric Munezero makes his first appearance of the season. He is joined by a couple of Gavs, Gavin Weeks, Gavin Bain. Charlie Jobling returns from injury and former club captain Will Willoughby makes his first appearance for a couple of seasons.
