Barnstaple confident of ending National Three south west losing streak
Barnstaple have a golden opportunity to end their National Three south west losing streak tomorrow.
After six successive defeats, Barum host Maidenhead, the division's bottom side, at Pottington Road (2.30pm).
Maidenhead have lost all 11 of their away matches, although they did pick up their second home win of the campaign on Saturday, beating Avonmouth Old Boys 25-20.
Kevin Squire, the Barnstaple director of rugby, said: "I would have preferred not to have seen that result but I'm confident we will have too much for them."

London Irish Wild Geese certainly had too much for Barnstaple last time out.
Squire said the biggest lesson his players could learn from their 72-17 defeat to the league leaders was that they need to spend more time in the gym.
"All you can do from an experience like that is learn from it," he said.
"One of the main things is strength and conditioning. They hone their bodies in the gym.
"If you want to play at the top level, you have got to turn into a beast of an athlete.
"If you are not naturally a big specimen, you have got to work to become one."
Scrum half Ben Vellacott is unavailable after he was confirmed in the Scotland under-18 squad for Sunday's match against Ireland.
