Wibsey Warriors are confident of national success
Wibsey Warriors will be confident of victory when they meet Thornhill Trojans in the second round of the BARLA National Cup at Northfield Road on Saturday.
The Warriors came out on top 32-16 in the league encounter four weeks ago following a super contribution from impressive prop Chris Vogel, who posted two touchdowns.
Something has to give when Bank Top Harriers visit Westgate Wolves in the third round round of the Pennine President's Cup, with both sides level on points in the Championship Division.
Queensbury, who proved that they are still resolved to avoid the Pennine League Premier Division drop with a spirited display against leaders Hunslet Old Boys last week, are on the road again at Slaithwaite Saracens, who are a handful on home soil.
Championship leaders Keighley face a difficult game at third-placed Knottingley Rockware, while West Bowling, rejoicing the return from injury of leading try-scorer Gareth Cullington, should keep second spot with a victory over struggling St Joseph's at Fartown.
Division One form team Birkenshaw, who have timed their promotion push to perfection, will be confident of maintaining the momentum at Newsome Panthers, with full back Ben Nabozny and centre Damien Smith in dazzling form.
There is a Division Three top-of-the-table clash between second-placed Odsal Sedbergh and unbeaten visitors West Leeds, while Division Four title contenders Undercliffe Wildboars will be without packmen Andy Kilmartin and Josh Page at Whitehall Warriors.
Chris Rafferty and Danny Barok are recalled and new signing Jamie Hitchen-Vause makes his debut.
