NOT for the first time in their short history, Bradford & Bingley, formed in 1982, are looking west for a replacement ground.

Wagon Lane is out of action for the foreseeable future due to three successive weekends of flooding, so the Bees are using Keighley RUFC on Saturday for their home North One East fixture against Morley.

Keighley's third XV have a Yorkshire Merit Table fixture at home to Old Brodleians thirds at 2.15pm on the Rugby365 artificial pitch so the Bees will start their derby at 11am.

It is not the first time that the Bees have played 'home' matches in the town as they temporarily used Cougar Park in the 2000-01 season when the pitches at Wagon Lane were covered in effluent after the River Aire had again flooded.

There is no problem with effluent this time but Chris Hemsley, the Bees' senior rugby chairman, said: "We don't know when we will be back at Wagon Lane.

"It could be two or three weeks. It just depends on how much more water we get."

Ninth-placed Bradford & Bingley have won seven of their 10 home matches this season, but the visiting Maroons, who beat Malton & Norton 14-12 at Scatchard Lane last weekend but have lost their last four away matches, triumphed 48-7 at Bingley last season.

The Bees lost their Yorkshire Shield semi-final 24-13 at Moortown last weekend, with No 8 Tom Cummins and centre James Morton impressing.

Cleckheaton have another test of their promotion ambitions on Saturday as the second-placed club are at home to third-placed Driffield (2.15pm), who are only two points behind.

The cherry and whites have won nine out of 10 at Moorend this season, only losing to Morley 14-10 in November, while the visitors have won four out of nine away.

Keighley, hoping to build on their excellent 7-7 draw with Old Brodleians two weekends ago, are at Leodiensian in Yorkshire Division One.

The visitors are still in a relegation place, but are only two points behind third-from-bottom Dinnington, while Leos showed that they are no pushovers at their North Leeds home by defeating Old Brods 17-12 there in November.

Bradford Salem have the difficult task of playing at third-placed Beverley, who have only lost to Pontefract (12-7) and Heath (28-20) at home this campaign, winning the other seven.

Eighth-placed Salem, who won 32-29 at Pontefract this season, will travel with a decent squad, however.
