Coach Ray Egan has named his starting 15 for the Pacific Rugby Premiership Round 5 game against Life West Rugby. Coach Egan's team is a mix of youth with some veterans inserted. " We have a great opportunity at home this weekend.” coach Egan said, “We know Life West are a big team who can play with the ball. We’ve really focused on our defense this week as it will be key for us to secure a victory.”
Fresh off a 55-22 victory over Olympic club, Life West comes into the game with a 2-2 record and currently sit in 4th place. A bonus point win could see them leap frog to 2nd place. Meanwhile Belmont Shore are in 2nd place with a 3-1 record having just defeated Santa Monica Rugby 19-3. A win could possibly propel them to 1st in the standings or at least put distance on the 3rd place team.
