Acklam entertain Barnard Castle at home Saturday and hopefully a great display of Rugby will be on show for our Ladies day!
Barnard Castle haven't enjoyed the best start but as we found against Whitley Bay Rockcliff, doesn't mean they are to be dismissed and will bring a highly contested game.
Acklam have fared well in the opening encounters of the league season having gained 2 wins from 4 collecting valuable bonus points along the way in particular in defeat.
Minor changes are made due to availability Danny Ashton comes in at 9 for Len Hogg with Marcus Sudron moving to stand off. Paul Roberts comes in to centre providing a great work rate in the middle of the park. Nathan Faint remains at full back to provide a threat along sinde his back 3 partners in Josh Abraham & Jacob Robinson. 2 changes are made in the pack due to injury and unavailability. Patrick O'brien bolster the back row along with John Morgan at 8. Xander Collins & Nathan Thompson who partnered well last week remain at lock. The powerful front row remains the same.
