Arguably the biggest game played at Bourne’s Milking Nook Drove ground since Division Two rugby was a regular fixture in the early 1990s takes place on Saturday.

Bourne face Queens in the quarter-finals of the Midlands Junior Vase with the chance for their first victory since the surprise win at Midlands Four East (North) side Mellish on January 2.

It’ll be a very tough game for us because Queens have come down from Midlands Three East (South)
Bourne joint coach John Forbes

Bedford-based Queens will be firm favourites to progress based on their third position in Midlands Four East (South) and a 53-10 demolition at home on December 5.

Bourne joint coach John Forbes said: “It’ll be a very tough game for us because Queens have come down from Midlands Three East (South).

“Training together before the game will be key for us as we need to be a bit more clinical with our kicking and more organised as a defensive line.”
