RUGBY LEAGUE: Cavaliers take on defending champions
9:30am Friday 13th July 2012 in Rugby
OXFORD Cavaliers will face a stern test of their title credentials tomorrow when they visit defending champions Somerset Vikings.
The improving side go into the game off the back of an impressive 60-10 victory over Bristol Sonics a fortnight ago, which took them top of the Rugby League Conference Weston Division.
Somerset edged the game at Oxford 39-36 last month and Cavaliers club captain John Connaughton is well aware it will be a tough trip.
He said: “I’ve been pleased with how we’ve gone this season, but Somerset are the current champions, and we have to respect that.”
The Vikings lost their last game, but Cavaliers coach Tevita Vaikona warned: “We know that they’ll come out strong and will have a point to prove.
“We’re ready, and I’ve every confidence we’ll put in a performance.”
