Hertfordshire have named the same team that thumped Cornwall 50-0 to reach the final of the Bill Beaumont County Championship.
It means Old Albanian pair, Dan Watt and Chris West, will start against Lancashire at Twickenham on Sunday while Woollams team-mate Oli Walliker and Harpenden’s Luke Barber will enter the action from the bench.
It will be Hertfordshire’s third appearance in the County Championship, with the previous two both against Lancashire.
And although they lost 32-23 in 2011, they got their revenge a year later with a 38-30 success.
Under the guidance of head coach and former Welsh international Michael Owen, Herts have played some thrilling rugby this season, none more so than Sunday’s crushing victory at Hertford Rugby Club.
West, Walliker and Barber all scored in an eight-try demolition that was their highest-ever victory over their Cornish visitors.
