Local pride to play for in Wibsey Warriors v Queensbury derby
Wibsey Warriors take on fierce rivals Queensbury in what is sure to be an explosive Pennine League clash on Saturday.
Both sides need the points to help ease them away from the wrong end of the Premier Division table – and there is also the small matter of local bragging rights at stake.
Queensbury coach Andy Senior is able to add Andrew Walker, Matthew Flanagan and Gareth Crowther to his squad but forward Gregg Marriott is unavailable.
Wyke should have far too much firepower for bottom side Dodworth as they go looking to secure top spot in Division Two.
Veteran Simon Owen has been rolling back the years so far this season, while winger Liam Hay is in top try-scoring form.
Clayton coach Darren Collins will be looking for his side to secure their first points of the season as they entertain West Craven Warriors.
The visitors have lost more than they have won this term and if Collins’ youngsters can put in a big performance, they have every chance of success.
Scrum half Dane Bairstow and hooker Ben Porter are the current Clayton danger men.
Odsal Sedbergh have a real chance to apply pressure on the Division Three pacesetters as they travel to winless Pontefract SSC.
Coach Gary Priestley will be eager to return to winning ways and, in master tactician Shaun Flynn and the ever-reliable Jonny Ward, he has the quality to achieve that objective.
There is also knockout action this weekend and Birkenshaw welcome East Yorkshire neighbours Norland Sharks in round two of the Reichenbacher Hamuel BARLA Yorkshire County Cup.
The visitors sit top of the Hull & District League Premier Division and the tie will prove a huge test for Birky, for whom centre Gavin Mezals is the key man.
West Bowling travel to fellow Pennine League side Methley Royals, who sit mid-table in Division One.
Championship Division high-fliers Bowling start as hot favourites, given their current rich vain of form.
Richard Lumb and Danny Gregory will provide their forward momentum while the lively Liam Coe secures the important number seven jersey.
