Not surprisingly, all the Chard rugby games were postponed last weekend as were most games in the South West, writes Glynn Hughes.

However, two games did take place in the Tribute Western Counties West with Devonport Services beating Wadebridge 28-20 and St Ives beating Truro 13-38.

Neither of these results affected Chard’s current league situation.

Weather and ground conditions permitting, the league programme will get under way again this coming Saturday (March 10), with Chard having a very important game away at Paignton

This is a big game for both teams as a win for Chard would go a long way to securing their place in this division next season. Chard won the home game against Paignton quite comfortably.

You may also want to watch:

However, their form since - particularly away from home - has been very iffy and Paignton will be aware that if they snatch a win they would only be 3pts behind Chard.

Supporters travelling to Paignton will find the ground very easy to find as it is immediately behind the railway and bus station right in the centre of town.
