Having beaten Pinner in the quarter final, Watford find themselves playing against local rivals Mill Hill for a place in the HM2 League Cup Final.

Watford's previous visit to North London didn't end well for the men in red, white and blue with Mill Hill recording a comprehensive victory by 41 points to 5. The home sides pack were in dominant form that day, and Watford will need to address set piece concerns to stand any chance of gaining a result this time round.

Watford began 2019 slightly off colour, suffering a narrow defeat away at the hands of London French, losing influential centre Sam Holloway from this weekends game to a nasty facial injury in the process. Holloway joins a lengthy list of absentees including Luke Hammill, Jon McClennon, Jon Portway, Stephen James, Tathan Williams and Josh Wilkinson. On the plus side, Watford welcome Scott Menzies back for the first time since injuring himself against Mill Hill before Christmas along with James Powell making his first appearance of 2019. Paul Dunlop and Luke Bees also start, both having missed the previous fixture against Mill Hill.

Kick Off is at 14:00, with the winner of old Millhillians vs London Scottish awaiting the victor.

All support is greatly appreciated - Come on Wats!
