Hastings & Bexhill Rugby Club will contest its final home game of 2015 tomorrow (Saturday).

H&B will entertain King’s College Hospital keen to continue their fine form in Kent One. Kick-off at Ark William Parker Academy is 2.15pm.

Fourth-placed H&B are five positions and 10 points above King’s College, and will be targeting a fourth successive league victory.

Head coach Chris Brooks expects to have a pretty full squad and acknowledges that on paper his team should come out on top, but is taking nothing for granted.

H&B’s latest success was a 19-12 win away to bottom side New Ash Green last weekend.

Brooks said: “It was a bit of a war of attrition. It was another appalling day in terms of weather, but it was a very good game and far more even than the billing would’ve dictated.

“They were very tough up-front, their scrum was very powerful and they nudged us around a little bit, but our defence was very good.

“In the second half we looked like the better side. I was always pretty sure that something was going to give, it’s just that I was getting a little nervous that it took so long to give.”

Brooks was also pleased that H&B weren’t adversely affected by a few late changes in personnel.
