The RACC will play in The POWER Cup semi final on Wednesday, 27 June. As yet, neither the opposition or venue is known. The dreadful weather, this season, has caused chaos with both fixtures and re-arrangements. As a consequence, the last of the Group games will be played on 25 and 26 June.
The pundits suggest that it is most likely that RACC will play RECC, at Chatham, as the Sappers require only 3 points from their match, today. Check here, later, for confirmation of opposition and match location which will be posted as soon as today's result at Aldershot is known.
