Rugby action this weekend begins with a postponement in the Tribute Western Counties West division. 

Falmouth Eagles were set to travel to runaway league leaders Wadebridge Camels but Falmouth confirmed in a statement on Friday morning that the game had been postponed for a later date. 

A statement on the clubs' Facebook page said: "Unfortunately we are having to postpone tomorrow's fixture with Wadebridge Camels.

"We have not taken this decision lightly but in the current climate, player welfare and safety is our priority.

"We will look forward to when we can rearrange this fixture and keep you updated as to when that will be."

Falmouth's next game is scheduled for January 15 when they are set to take on Bideford. 

Penryn RFC have won their last two matches and will be aiming for a hat trick of victories when they take on 11th placed Paignton at the Memorial Ground. A victory could see them rise to sixth depending on how Newton Abbot fare in their game against Teignmouth. 

Truro will be favourites, on paper going into their match against bottom-placed Honiton. Truro are third in the league and could ascend to second with a victory against their so-far winless opponents. That is dependant on the outcome of Chard's game at Bideford. 

Tribute Western Counties West fixtures:

Penryn v Paignton

Teignmouth v Newton Abbot

Tiverton v Kingsbridge

Wiveliscombe v Burnham-on-Sea

Bideford v Chard

Truro v Honiton
