WITH three games to go in Kingstone Press National Conference Division Three, Drighlington’s play-off hopes hang in the balance.

They beat Batley Boys 22-8 last time out, thanks to a brace of tries from Jake Dearden, and are currently placed sixth, in the last play-off spot.

They have the difficult task of travelling to second-placed Hunslet Warriors this Saturday, who only need a point to secure automatic promotion.

In the Yorkshire Men’s League, under the Friday night lights, Wyke could move within one win of a perfect season if they can overcome local rivals Keighley Albion in Division Two.

They go into the game full of confidence, after thrashing Bradford rivals Wibsey Warriors 54-4 last weekend.

Also on Friday, Queensbury welcome fellow mid-table side New Earswick All Blacks in the Premier Division, while on Saturday Queensbury’s A Team host Odsal Sedbergh in Division Four.

They finally picked up their first win of the season last Saturday, beating a pointless Crigglestone All Blacks side 24-0.

In Division Three, basement side Birkenshaw Bluedogs welcome Kirkburton Cougars, off the back of a 24-0 defeat at high-flying St Josephs, while Birstall Victoria, who got a shock 32-24 win over Moldgreen last Saturday, travel to Cutsyke Raiders A.

On Sunday, both of the district’s women’s teams make the trip to Wigan. In the Women’s Super League, Bradford Bulls travel to Wigan Warriors, while Keighley Albion head to Wigan St Patrick’s in League One, looking for their eighth win in a row.
