ROME wasn’t built in a day, and neither will Bradford & Bingley be under the coaching duo of Antony Posa and Hugh Gumbs.

The Bees have lost both of their opening matches in North Two East, and Posa admitted: “It is a bigger job than I expected and we are still getting used to playing with each other.

“We blew five dead-cert tries last week at Cleckheaton, and the culture and discipline will have to change, but numbers at training have increased from the tens to 30 and the rugby committee have been brilliant.”

Posa said that his team would have one or two positional changes tomorrow in another derby at home to Huddersfield YMCA, while Cleckheaton are without the injured Ryan Piercy and the unavailable Josh Plunkett at Scarborough.

Tom Austin replaces Piercy in the second row, while James Crowther starts in the back row in place of Plunkett, with Niall Jackson coming on to the bench.

Bradford Salem have cousins Kody Brook and Kristian Dobson in the backs for their Yorkshire Division One match at Selby.

The visitors also give scrum half James Simpson his seasonal debut, and switch Harry Hall to fly half.

Injuries from last week’s tough game against Sedgley Park have meant changes to Wharfedale’s team for their National League Two North clash at Hinckley.

The most notable is man of the match Matty Houghton.

With Joe Altham unavailable, George Martin gets a seat on the bench as front-row interchange.

Meanwhile, Will Bell returns to first-team duty after a long spell out of the game through injury.
