London Welsh will be looking to carry on the momentum from last week's victory as Oxford Harlequins visit Old Deer Park this Saturday. 

The Welsh bounced back from a crushing defeat on the opening weekend against Maidenhead by winning away from home against Royal Wootton Bassett last Saturday. 

Those results leave the Exiles in ninth place in Regional 1 South Central, level on points with fourth place Wimbledon, but they are in for a big test at Old Deer Park this weekend. 

Oxford have won both of their opening two games, against Brighton and Bournemouth, and will arrive in South West London with plenty of confidence. 

Kick-off this Saturday is at 3pm at Old Deer Park. 

Teddington RFC will be getting their season up and running this weekend as they host Old Rutlishians in Counties 2 Surrey. 

Having had their first two matches of the new season postponed, Teddington will finally get to start their season by welcoming the Merton-based club. 

Old Rutlishians have been able to begin their season, winning 36-29 away at Effingham & Leatherhead, leaving them joint second in Counties 2 Surrey. 

Teddington are playing Bushy Park and kick-off is at 3pm. 

In the Premiership, London Irish are travelling to Northampton hoping to follow up a dominant win over Worcester last weekend and Harlequins host Saracens also hoping to build on a winning start to the season. 

Elsewhere in the area this Saturday, Kingston RFC will be hosting Hove in Chessington, Ealing Trailfinders are on the road at Ampthill RUFC, London Scottish are on the road against Bedford Blues, and London Cornish First XV are travelling to Beaconsfield.
