Wibsey Warriors hope it's men against Boys
A number of Bradford area sides take part in the second round of the BARLA Yorkshire Cup on Saturday, with Wibsey Warriors making the short trip to fellow Pennine League side Batley Boys.
The Warriors should have too much firepower for a Batley side who are struggling in Championship One, having lost all their opening three games.
Coach Jason Hirst will not be complacent, however, and will expect his side to be fully focused.
Luke Helliwell provides plenty of creativity at half-back while forwards Harry Hall and Mark Darragh provide the go-forward up front.
Bank Top Harriers also face Pennine League opposition when they travel to New Earswick All Blacks.
The Harriers have prop James Rhodes in fine form, and the skilful Adam Mitchell is always a handful.
The All Blacks sit a division below a Harriers side who should prove too strong for the York outfit.
Queensbury welcome Hull side Embassy in what's sure to be a bruising encounter.
Embassy operate in the Premier Division of the Hull league, and 'Bury will need to be at their best to reach round three.
Gareth Chambers is on top form for Queensbury, while experienced goal-kicker Scott Swann could ultimately prove the difference.
In Championship One of the Pennine League, Birkenshaw face a difficult trip to Newsome Panthers.
The latter lie in second place but victory for Birky would see them leapfrog their opponents.
Odsal Sedbergh face a tricky Division One encounter at Boothtown Terriers.
The Terriers have won both their opening games so far but with the likes of free-scoring Josh Tordoff in their ranks, Sedge will be confident they can end that unbeaten run.
Wyke entertain leaders Brotherton Bulldogs at the Recreation Ground, with both sides needing points for different reasons, Wyke needing to push away from the foot of the table.
Andrew Patchett is the man to watch currently for Wyke, while Sam Redmond is also catching the eye.
