IT IS difficult to know what to expect from tomorrow's re-arranged Yorkshire Division One clash between Bradford Salem and Beverley at Shay Lane.

"We had chalk-and-cheese results against them last season," said Salem chairman Neil Klenk.

"Some 13 months ago we beat them 45-18 at home in one of our best performances of the campaign, but then we went to Beaver Park in February and were beaten 68-17.

"We took a slightly weakened side but we didn't play that badly. It was just that everything Beverley tried came off.

"Also Dan Scarbrough got sin-binned and they scored a few tries while he was off."

Klenk added: "It is very difficult to predict anything in Yorkshire Division One but if we do manage to win - and it will be difficult as Beverley are a very good side - it would move us two places up the table to 10th.

"Also we don't know how heavy the pitch will be as there is due to be a frost tonight and it is forecast to be dry tomorrow."

The hosts hope to have Glenn Morrison back from his thumb injury, and Andy Robinson will also be in contention, but they will be missing young winger Morgan Mirzaali - he has been called up by Yorkshire Under-18s to face Northumberland at Blaydon on Sunday - and experienced prop Pete Tennet.

Salem have won their last two matches and fourth-placed Beverley their last three, with their only setback in five away trips so far being by 31-28 against Old Crossleyans on the opening day of the season.

Bradford & Bingley also have a re-arranged league match in North One East, and it too is difficult on paper.

The seventh-placed Bees, who have won their last two outings, are at fourth-placed Morley, who have won five out of five in 2019-20 at Scatcherd Lane.

Baildon, who have been to Twickenham twice on the back of success in the Yorkshire Silver Trophy, are in Yorkshire Vase action tomorrow.

They face familiar foes in Old Otliensians at Chaffers Field in a second-round tie, with the winners progressing to the quarter-finals.

Otliensians are fourth in Yorkshire Division Three and Baildon third, but the Jenny Laners have already beaten the hosts this season, triumphing 28-12 at home in the league on October 19.

However, Otliensians have won all four league matches at home, racking up 179 points while only conceding 54.

Wibsey, who are eighth in Yorkshire Division Three, were also due to be in Vase action - at home to Mosborough in the first round.

However, the south Yorkshire side, old adversaries from Wibsey's Yorkshire Division Four days, have a re-arranged Yorkshire Division Four South East match at home to Hessle.

Second-placed Mosborough, who have won six of their seven league matches, their only defeat so far being last Saturday by 26-12 at leaders York RI, will now visit Northfield Road on December 21.
