This Saturday in our Remembrance Day match against Loughborough Students we have some returning players. After featuring in the Sale Sharks team playing in the Premiership Cup we have Kieran Wilkinson, Matthew Postlethwaite, Nic Dolly, Paolo Odogwu and Connor Doherty back in the side. With Rhys Davies and Jonty Rawcliffe moving to the bench, Mark Lawrence moving from the centre to full back this team is made up of 13 of the boys who won National 2 North last year. Kieran Wilkinson comes in for the departed Chris Johnson who has moved back to Huddersfield following the birth of his son. Elliot Hodgson gets his first start at Heywood Road and Ryan Parkinson gets his first start at Heywood Road in 11 years! The full team is here

Remembrance Day Game

This weekend we take on Loughborough Students. With a tough month behind us, including the first loss in 18 months at the CorpAcq Stadium. We look to get back on track against the team who seemed to have turned their fortunes around, although rooted at the bottom of the table, they have two convincing wins over Birmingham Moseley and Darlington Mowden Park.
