Bournemouth Lions set for familiar battle with Chinnor in return to home action
The Bournemouth Lions face an old foe this weekend as their adventure in the fourth tier of rugby continues.
The Dorset side face Chinnor at Chapel Gate on Saturday, who the Lions know all too well.
"We know Chinnor like the back of our hand" explained Bournemouth RFC Director of Rugby David Dunn.
"We've come up against them in the past so we know what to expect. There will be no surprises there."

The Oxfordshire side were promoted from National Two South West along with Bournemouth, but had to go through the playoffs.
Like The Lions, Chinnor have made a bright start to the season - narrowly defeating Launceston in their only game so far.
The visitors to Chapel Gate had last weekend off due to the odd number of teams in the league. With National League Two South much more physical than either side are used to - Bournemouth's link with Bath Rugby Club could play a key role.
"It's interesting that some of the boys are already starting to feel the pain in this league" explained Dunn.
"Bath Rugby approached us and we have some players on loan just to help our strength in depth.
"We're working on a lot of different areas and always looking to improve and get more confident."
