This weekend Aireborough face Wensleydale at home in what should be a fascinating fixture.

A few weeks ago in cup competition, Wenselydale came out on top having 31 unanswered points and rarely looked troubled by Aireborough.

Since that fixture, Aireborough have showed good fighting spirit in the league despite their continuing losing run.

In the pack, Rich Lister makes his 1st start in his quest for match fitness following injury. He plays at tight head and is partnered by Martyn Booth at hooker and Lewis Eastwood at loose head. In the 2nd row, Alan Justham moves from 6 to partner Head coach Simon Davies in what is his 2nd start for the Wolf Pack in the past 2 seasons. Mikey Dolan come back into the openside role having rested his shoulder for a couple of weeks, with vice captain and pack leader, Chris Chapman moving to 6 and Jonny Mackey keeping his place at number 8.

In the backs, Stuart Wilson and Ollie Catherall continue their half back partnership. Outside them, Lewis Myers and Harley Stevenson-Cocks start in the centres for the 2nd week in a row. Steffan Newport continues on the right wing, with Tony Clitheroe coming back from injury to come in on the left. Kris Brook starts at full back having had a week off due to social commitments.

On the bench, Tim Baxter (unlucky not to be starting) and Nick Jackson (back from injury) hold the 2 front row interchange positions. Sy Hill (back from a week off) and Jonny Hiles (back from injury) complete the bench in terms of forward replacements. Utility back, Iain Craven starts on the bench having made a successful return to playing following injury.

Kick off is 2:15pm and as always, your support is welcome.
