Standings are at the fledgling stage at the moment but there is a top-of-the-table clash in North One East between Bradford & Bingley and leaders Moortown at Wagon Lane.

Both have won two from two, with Moortown’s maximum haul giving them a one-point advantage, and Bees coach Hugh Gumbs said: “We have made a phenomenal start compared to where we were 12 months ago and have been able to integrate some of the younger players.”

Club captain Tom Booth is absent but Ali Macdonald comes in against visitors who have thrived under Carl Thewlis-Johns.

Cleckheaton, who are ninth, host Huddersfield YMCA, who are 13th and have hit the headlines recently because their local YMCA organisation (not the rugby section) are being asked to pay £166,000 to the YMCA Pension Trustees Ltd.

At stake as usual in this derby is the John Bower Trophy, which Cleckheaton hold.

Bradford Salem will be hoping for better fortune at Selby than when they played there last season in Yorkshire Division One.

Salem were leading 8-0 at half-time but lost 15-11.

Back for the visitors comes To’i Auali’itia but there are injury doubts over scrum half Harley Robertshaw (hip and knee), skipper Christian Baines (hamstring) and centre Connor Malarkey.

Keighley, who are bottom, host seventh-placed Old Crossleyans.

Old Grovians, who were expecting a difficult September due to unavailabilities, have surprised themselves by winning their first two matches in Yorkshire Division Two.

Grovians, who are second, also have Halifax visitors in Old Rishworthians, who are 11th.
