Ealing Trailfinders welcome local rivals Richmond to Vallis Way this Saturday (8 October) aiming to make it five wins from five so far this season.

The 2021/22 Championship and Championship Cup winners recorded a strong away win over Coventry last Saturday, backing up from their impressive 42-7 victory over Hartpury University two weeks ago.

A dominant eight-try performance in the West Midlands saw Ealing Trailfinders climb to the top of the Championship table.

A brace from Jonah Holmes and a superb defensive display sees them finish the first four games with maximum points and will complete this first block of games at home next weekend as they welcome Richmond to Trailfinders Sports Club.

Richmond make the short trip to West London aiming to secure their first ever Championship victory at Trailfinders Sports Club. Richmond’s last visit to Vallis Way resulted in a 60-10 defeat, the same afternoon Ealing lifted the 2021/22 Championship trophy.

This Saturday’s fixture is set to be an entertaining contest with both sides emphasising fast, attacking rugby. There’s also the opportunity for spectators to enjoy the post-match entertainment with a live DJ playing hits in the clubhouse from 5pm-9pm.

Kick off is 3pm and tickets are available here.

Trailfinders Sports Club is at W13 0DD.
