Gosport & Fareham are unchanged for the first time this season as they look to avenge their heaviest defeat against Twickenham at Gosport Park.

They guaranteed their London south west two survival last weekend with a thumping 44-24 win at KCS Old Boys and, with the shackles off, are looking to turn the tables on their visitors.

The fact it is captains’ day at the club – an occasion when over 100 ex-players and former captains will sit down in the clubhouse for lunch beforehand – will only offer a further incentive.

‘At Twickenham, we put in our worst performance of the season,’ said director of rugby Jamie Daly.

‘The players have a point to prove – that it was just a bad day at the office and that Twickenham are no better than us.

‘We are safe after last week’s win so there should be no pressure on us.

‘If we can play well in our three remaining games then we can improve our league position and that has to be the target.’

Gosport & Fareham: Heron, Thorne, Dugan Wayne, Moggeridge, Paterson, Duncombe, Dugan Wes, Burton, Clark, Whitehead, Woodford, Pollard, Barnes, Snowden, Westerman, Reynolds, Foster.
