Bournemouth visit fellow league challengers Ding Crusaders in what might turn out to be a title decider match. Bournemouth faced Ding Crusaders back in October where Dings won by just one point. With Dings topping the league and Bournemouth closing the gap behind in second place the game is poised to be one of the closest and hardest fought games of the year. If you cannot make the game you will be able to follow the action on the Bournemouth Rugby Twitter feed.

Will has spoken to the Daily Echo about the game against Dings: 
''There will be a big expectation from their crowd for them to do well but we have to go there to enjoy it and thrive on the atmosphere. Dings are a big, historic club who draw from a fairly big pool of players.  Having beaten us at home they will expect to win at their place but we have seen from results in recent weeks that the top of the table is getting tighter.  We can go there knowing, if we put in a good performance and take the spoils, not only does it help us close the gap on Dings but it also gives us an opportunity to pull away and cement second.''
