TICKETS are now on sale for another key National One home game with in-form Leicester Lions on Saturday.
Rams made it four bonus-point wins in a row at Bishop’s Stortford last time out, keeping hot on the heels of leaders Chinnor ahead of what will prove a stern test.
Last year’s National Two West champions Lions have hit a rich run of form themselves with four victories in five games to haul them up the table, the streak including eye-catching wins at Richmond and against Plymouth Albion last time out.
Leicester also inflicted Rams’ first defeat of the campaign when they snapped a perfect six-match winning start with a dramatic late 26-24 victory back in October, and another crucial tussle is in store with the hosts also looking to continue a good New Year run.
With only four home games remaining this term chances are running out to see Rams in action, so make sure you come down for what should be a terrific battle!
