Otley head north this weekend to play Tynedale, and both sides are without a win so far this season. After a narrow loss at Wharfedale, followed by an improved performance against Huddersfield last weekend, the Yorkshiremen will be looking for the ‘W’.
Otley came oh so close last February when they lost 25-22 to Tynedale, the assistant referee denying them a try in the closing moments. On such moments games turn, and had it gone the other way Otley would have got their first league win at Corbridge.
There is one change to Otley’s starting line-up this Saturday, Freddie Watson replaces Jack Scott-Paul who is on the bench.
For their part Tynedale are level on points with Otley despite losing both of their opening two fixtures. Back to back defeats against newly promoted Luctonians and Hull is not the start Ben Woods and his side would have envisaged so the North-East club will be itching to put those two disappointing results behind them this weekend.
Let battle commence!
Don't forget the England v Samoa game is on the big screen on Sunday at the clubhouse - come down and enjoy yourself.
