Bees must do without Henry Paul for three weeks
Bradford & Bingley will be without Henry Paul for three weeks.
“He is going to India to coach their national women’s sevens team,” said the Bees’ first-team manager Benji Pickin.
The Wagon Lane club are second from bottom in SSE National League Three North, and Pickin said of their 27-12 defeat at Sandal: “We should have won as they had 18 players out from the last time they beat us.
“We made wrong decisions on the pitch and didn’t play to our strengths, and scrum half Kirk Arundale injured his groin again, so will be out for a few weeks.
“We hope to have centre Richard Tafa and fly half Nick Wainwright back at home to Stockport tomorrow.”
Promotion-chasing Cleckheaton have Jonno Marshall in the first-team squad for the first time since March, following shoulder trouble.
He is on the bench for the SSE North One East derby at Huddersfield YMCA but Ollie Akroyd is unavailable.
Ryan Piercy reverts to the back row to replace him, Alex Dawson being promoted from the bench to lock.
Andy Piper starts in the front row, Chris Piper becoming a replacement.
Bradford Salem have recalled Terry Frankland to solve a scrum-half crisis for their SSE Yorkshire Division Two match at home to Roundhegians.
Salem are without Matt Child, Ian Woodwiss, Dave Howcroft, who all could have worn the No 9 shirt.
Baildon are without Alistair Beaumont and Tom Massey for the home derby against West Leeds.
Beaumont is unavailable and Massey injured for the winless Jenny Laners.
Wibsey hope to have utility back Connor Davis and winger Martin Howarth, both signed from Cleckheaton, in their 20 at home to Rossington Hornets in SSE Yorkshire Division Five.
Cleckheaton (at Huddersfield YMCA): R Hayden; M Woodhead, Matt Piper, James Marshall, J Wilson; Michael Piper, J Bickerdike; P Turner, B Thrower, A Piper, A Dawson, G Turton, R Piercy, R Piper, R Afoa-Peterson. Replacements: C Piper, R Bennett, Johnno Marshall.
Bradford Salem (home to Roundhegians): D Belcher; C Malarkey, S Savage, S Dunn, I Clayton; A Robinson, T Frankland; J Bradbury, A Veitch, S Davies, S Leach, J Cunliffe, J Booth, D Pearson, R Green. Replacements from: D Luxton, S Markey, J Fawcett, J Morrell.
