Brods welcome Scarborough to Woodhead on Saturday (2.15) for what is bound to be another enthralling Yorkshire One clash.

With last Saturday’s four points safely banked, Brods sit well placed in third position having played against many of the top sides.

Scarborough were early season pace setters although their early victories were over sides in the lower half of the table.

In recent weeks they have been involved in some really close battles, drawing with Ilkey 17-17, defeating Dinnington 15-11, losing to Selby, 22-20, and registering another draw with North Ribblesdale last weekend, 21-21.

With Brods similarly being involved in weekly close shaves there is no doubt that this game will also be hard fought.

The Woodhead men will be looking to build on the good form which so far has only be seen in glimpses.

There is no doubt that they are capable of improvement and the Woodhead crowd have not seen the best of this group of players.

Coach John Cole will be looking for continued improvement, especially in discipline which cost the side nine early points last weekend .

Pre-match entertainment will be provided by top comedian, Zac Stevens, and special guests at the pre-match lunch will be from the club’s new sponsors Coral Windows, and a party including Paul Gowland of the Yorkshire Air ambulance to whom all gate monies will be donated.

The second team travel to second-placed Huddersfield in confident mood following their recent successes.

As clear leaders of the Western Championship, they will be looking to increase the points difference over the Lockwood Park club.

The Beavers entertain Doncaster Dragons and the Development side will again be looking for a fixture in the pool.

On Sunday the Colts return to league action with a game at Sheffield Tigers. This follows progress last week in the National Cup when they hammered Doncaster away from home with an emphatic 54-5 victory.

They will now play West Park Leeds in the next round at Woodhead on a date to be announced.

The top game at home on Sunday will be the Junior Colts (U17) game with Pontefract (12.30).

The Minis will be entertaining Skipton across all age groups plus several sides from Ovenden Park .
