2e2 Douglas Take on Ruskin Park
2E2 Douglas have a massive game this weekend at home to Ruskin Park. Win this and the promotion chase is still firmly in their hands.
Ruskin are the only side to have really troubled the Douglas outfit this season, most other losses have been much closer. Local rivals Vagabonds nearly caused an upset last week and it was only a Ruskin penalty right at the death that saved some blushes.
Expect some big battles in the forwards with the large visiting pack looking for dominance against a Douglas eight that has successfully punched well above it weight all season.
Ruskin have not had much success against the Capital side on home soil and they will have to bring their best game this weekend against a Douglas side reeling from an ugly defeat last weekend against Dunkinfield.
Skipper Ryan Maddox will have more players to choose from with the fixture being at home and will be picking the side for a win. Kick off is 14:15 at Port e Chee with an ex players and WAGs lunch prior, contact Tony Wilson-Spratt to book your place.
Finally if you can manage to split yourself in two, Douglas 2s take on Vagabonds B in the Manx Plate Final at Ballafletcher, kick off is 14:30. Whoever you choose to watch both sides will be looking to make this a massive day for Douglas RUFC so show your support.
