Worthing must get used to being favourites as they head for Sussex rugby's clash of the champions.

Mike Imrie's side, fresh from clinching the London Three South East title, tackle newly-crowned Sussex One champions Chichester in the Sussex Trophy final at East Grinstead on Sunday (3pm).

Both teams beat higher division opponents in the semis, with Worthing ending Haywards Heath's six-year domination of the county event.

Skipper Imrie said: "Whatever happens it is good for Sussex rugby that the Heath monopoly is over.

"Once you get to a final it does not matter who is the favourite. We will give Chichester full respect and expect them to come out with all guns blazing."

Worthing were beaten county finalists in the last two years but have not lifted the trophy since 1993 while Chichester are in their first final.

Chi have doubts over Steve Bradford (ankle) and Tom Polhill (hamstring), neither of whom are named in the starting line-up. Skipper Ben Polhill said: "This is our last game of the season and we have nothing to hold back.

"The players' attitude has been superb in the last few weeks and we are looking forward to it."

Visitors to Saint Hill will also be able to enjoy the Sussex women's final, between holders Worthing and Hove (1pm).

Haywards Heath continue their bid for third place in London One tomorrow.

They stage an attractive clash with Norwich, the team immediately above them, to round-off a highly entertaining season at Whitemans Green.

Henry Goodburn is likely to come off the bench in his last home game as skipper.
