Bradford Salem's Sam Gardner is out for the season
Bradford Salem’s experienced centre Sam Gardner will miss the rest of the season.
Salem’s first-team manager Neil Klenk said: “Sam got his leg wrapped around the post and has torn his posterior cruciate ligament.
“We hope to re-sign Tom Barnes in time from Otley to replace him.”
Salem, who are at Old Rishworthians, are also without new Kiwi Marc Gibbons.
Klenk explained: “Marc clashed knees with Damien Pearson but the injury is not as serious as was first thought and hopefully he will only be out for a week.
"Damien was also injured and is on the bench but Danny Belcher returns at full back.”
Baildon, who need to find a cutting edge in attack, may give a debut to scrum half Patrick Sowter at Sheffield Medicals. Sowter hails from player-coach Adam Falkner’s former club at Gosforth.
It will be a busy weekend on the junior front for Baildon as they hold their first girls’ training session on Saturday for under-11s to under-16s at Sir Titus Salt School (10.30am-noon). Further information is available from Phil Wilson on 01274-532278.
On Sunday, it is the mini-festival at Baildon for under-sevens to under-12s (10.30am).
Bradford Salem (at Old Rishworthians): D Belcher; S Savage, S Dunn, T Barnes, C Malarkey; A Robinson, M Child; J Bradbury, A Veitch, S Davies, B Scarbrough, S Leach, J Booth, J Cunliffe, J Fawcett. Replacements: S Markey, D Luxton, D Pearson.
