WELWYN face a tough task on Saturday as they travel to Surrey to take on Staines in London 2 North.
Staines are currently second in the league with six wins and only one defeat from their opening seven games this season.
Last weekend they defeated Ruislip 18-5 away from home to keep up their title challenge.
Welwyn, meanwhile, have struggled so far this season, still feeling the effects from Peter Engledow's departure and the loss of some key players to Bishop's Stortford and Hertford.

Andy Riley's side will be without Luke Williams, who is leaving the area to work in Wales, and Rob Muggridge, who is unlikely to be able to play again until at least Christmas.
Tom Jankowski, who injured his shoulder in the derby defeat, is another who is doubtful to play.
