Aire travel to local rivals Leeds Modernians after both teams have had a stuttering start to the season.

With both teams only amassing one victory each so far this season it adds a bit of extra spice in what is always a highly competitive game.

Aireborough welcome Lewis Myers into outside centre in what will be his league debut for the Wolf Pack. Stu Wilson retains his role as general at scrum half. 1st XV captain Ollie Catherall comes back into 10 moving Nick Holdsworth one out meaning Harley Stevenson-Cocks goes back into his preferred full back position. The wings remain as they were last week with Kris Brook and Jamie Sykes on the flanks.

In the pack Charlie Middleton, Nick Jackson and Tom Clayton all miss out through injury. Andy Fuller comes in to hook with Martyn Booth back in the starting line up to cuddle him at scrum time. Lewis Eastwood retains his place in the starting line up at loose head.

Jonny Hiles unfortunately drops out of the boiler room due to a training ground injury which is a real shame following his Man of the Match performance last week. In his place comes Dan Walker who partners mainstay Sy Hill.

In the back row, Mikey Dolan returns after a week off to partner VC Chris Chapman, while Jonny Mackey takes the role of number 8.

Aire also welcome Tim Baxter, Phil Shopland-Reed, Luke Exley and Steff Newport all back from absence on to the bench.
