Woodbridge coach Adrian Foulger was hoping to be able to pick from a strong squad, but unfortunately several players are unavailable and he is forced to make changes.

In the backs newcomers Rautenbch and Bredenkamp are unavailable so Rafferty and Novosad complete the line-up.

Woodbridge: Harris, Gray, Illingworth, Woodley, Brigginshaw, Reeve, Crowther, Percival, Johnson, Smith, Manning, Sutor, Harper, Novosad and Rafferty (capt). Reps: Hurlock and Cooke.
