Hove make the trip to Maidstone for their second away game of the season. After redeeming themselves in a tight contest against Charlton Park last week, Hove will be looking to keep up the momentum against a strong Maidstone outfit.

For the first time in a few weeks, the coaches have had a luxury of picking a consistent team. In the pack Carl Buckland returns from his German travels and packs down in the second row with Ian Saunders, Charlie Watts shift to number 8 with Toby Brown moving up to flanker. In the backs, Jerome Pye returns at scrum half. George Brown, Charlie Knight and Tyler Hooper make up the bench.

The seconds are also at home this weekend to Hellingly, similarly they have also picked a strong team with a number of backs returning particularly Captain Johnny OW. Ash Parker, Max Marshall, George Davies, Bryn Garrish and Danny O'Connor all return.

Head coach Sandy Roberston said "we have had a solid weeks training, consistency in selection in the first team reflects the strong win against Charlton Park last weekend, we are also boosted by a number of players coming into the second team and we are looking for a big performance after a tough couple of weeks". Kick offs for both teams is 3pm.
