CHINNOR will target a fourth successive Oxfordshire Cup final appearance when they host Witney on Sunday (2.30).

The Thame-based club have to field their second team this season, but having won every match in 2012-13, they will be strong favourites to win the semi-final.

Flanker Tim Muller returns on the bench for Witney, who will be hoping for a better showing than when the clubs last met.

On that occasion, Chinnor hammered Witney 68-0 in the 2010 final.

Also in knockout action tomorrow are Wallingford, who host Wimborne in the RFU Intermediate Cup’s Southern Counties final.

Chipping Norton entertain Marlborough at the same stage of the RFU Senior Vase.

Chinnor 2nd (v Witney, home): from Stock, Ludgate, Horwood, Harrison, Rixon, Newman, Angell, Powell, G Blewitt, S Blewitt, Rowley, Mountford, Kent, Brown, Lavin, B Hackshaw, Hillier, Woodhouse, Nicholls.


Witney (v Chinnor 2nd, away): Monks, Lee Manning, J Lamb, Clarke, L Collins, H Lamb, G Campbell, Burke, R Harris, Richens, Haire, M Copperwheat, J Hicks (capt), C Campbell, Rowles. Reps: Stratford, Douglas, Muller, Fuller, Calley.
