PROUD Redingensians Rams head coach Seb Reynolds cannot wait for his side to host Chinnor in one of the biggest games ever played at the Old Bath Road ground on Saturday (2pm), writes Richard Ashton.

A stunning run of 11 wins in 12 games has seen Rams soar to third in the National Two South table, just nine points behind their opponents.

A bonus-point victory could heighten the chances of a sensational promotion charge, just three years after Rams were playing in National Three South West.

And Reynolds told the Chronicle: “I’m incredibly proud of this club that we’ve got ourselves into this position where we’ve got such a brilliant game coming up.

“When we came into this league the target was just to survive, and that was only two years ago.

"Last year the aim was just to survive again, and now we find ourselves fighting up near the top.

"It’s wonderful for the players that they get to play in these matches and we’re incredibly excited.”

He continued: “Chinnor are a very good side and they’ll be well up for it too – it should be really good fun.

“It’s a huge game – and if we win we’ll see what happens – but we’re excited and it’s just great to be in this position.”

And with a bumper crowd expected, Reynolds said: “We want to provide exciting, top-quality rugby for the Reading area and we want to bring people in to watch and be proud of this club.

“If we get a few extra people down each week because of the way we’re playing and the smiles on the boys’ faces then that’s brilliant.”
