VS Rugby entertain Stafford Rangers looking to get back to
winning ways after four straight defeats.

defeats now but I really dont think that reflects the way we have been playing.

"I had hoped to have a settled side by now but that has just not been possible.

stage I hope to have almost everyone available and then I think we will start to earn the
rewards that our play deserves."
