Aireborough welcome Sheffield Medics to Nunroyd this weekend knowing that a victory will take them above their South Yorkshire opponents in the league.

We will be hoping to continue our bid to climb the table in which should be an entertaining fixture against the student side. This could also present us with our first opportunity to get a double over a side having beaten them on their own turf earlier in the season.

From last week's squad, Rich Lister (unavailable) and Anthony Clitheroe (concussion) drop out of what is a generally unchanged squad to that which beat high flying Harrogate Pythons last week.

Lewis Eastwood continues at loose head with Nick Jackson at hooker. They will be partnered by Martyn Booth who comes up from the bench to replace the unavailable Lister at tight head.

In the boiler house, Alan Justham continues and is partnered by Sy 'Big John' Hill who will be looking to create havoc with his barnstorming style of playing (watch out for their 10, he is a strong boy).

The back row stays as it was last week (after a slight adjustment) with Philip Shopland-Reed, Chris Chapman and Jonny Mackey starting at 6, 7 & 8 respectively.

The half back partnership of Stuart Wilson and Ollie Catherall continues and will play an important role in the outcome of the game.

Last week's forced centre pairing of Nick Holdsworth and Mikey 'Little John' Dolan continue in the midfield.

Again, on the flanks, Joe White and Jamie Sykes fill the wings while Harley Stevenson-Cocks returns to the 1st team line up having returned from a sternum injury.

The interchange bench welcomes Charlie Middleton back from a week's rest where he will cover front row. Luke Exley starts on the bench waiting to make an impact later on in the game. Aireborough also welcome back Lewis Barrett from long term injury. Adam Bishop remains on the bench this week having impressed when he was pushed into action against Harrogate and Lewis Myers comes back into the frey having had a week off.

The match kicks off at 2:15 and your support is welcome as always.

The clubhouse is sure to be busy with the Crusaders also at home against Halifax Dukes.
