Penryn travel to north Cornwall to take on Bude in another vital Cornwall/Devon League fixture for the title chasers on Saturday, writes Ben Gilby.
The Bencoolen Meadow side can consider themselves unlucky to have been relegated from Western Counties West at the end of last season having won a game more than Burnham-on-Sea, but it was a lack of bonus points gained that ultimately proved their undoing.
They lie in fifth place with nine wins from their 15 games. 
The postponement of Penryn's game with Wessex on Saturday meant that Honiton took advantage to leapfrog the Borough into third place. 
Bude, who are always tough to beat at home, know that if they can defeat Penryn, they could move to within ten points of their opponents at the weekend. The North Cornwall side have lost just two home games all season, to second-placed Wellington (21-27) and third placed Honiton (17-20).
Earlier in the season Borough beat Bude 11-0 in atrocious conditions at the Memorial Ground, thanks to a try from Ben Birkett and two Mitchell Vague penalties. 
After the postponement of their midweek game against RNAS Culdrose Seahawks due to pitch conditions, Penryn Saracens will be hoping for better luck on Saturday when they take their impressive recent Duchy League record to Tregorrick Park to take on St Austell IIs. 
The Saints' second string, known as "The Sinners", are having a fine season, presently in second place in the division, with only one loss in the league. However, Penryn know that a victory against strong opposition could potentially move them up to third place in the table.
PenFal Colts return to action for the first time in 2018 on Saturday when they host Hayle on Saturday. 
They will be looking to build on some improved performances towards the end of the old year against a Lions side who always provide tough opposition.
