RUGBY UNION: Grove to lead way
GROVE, who visit Reading Abbey tomorrow, should be Oxfordshire’s leading side in Southern Counties North, provided they can keep their best players fit.
Their pre-season highlight was a 21-19 victory at Oxford Harlequins and confidence is high going into the new season.
Wallingford host Alchester at the Hithercroft, with mid-table looking the best hope for both.
Banbury’s Midlands 2 West South opener is at Upton-on-Severn.
