This Saturday sees rugby return to Stocksfield sports field as P&S host Jarrovians RUFC.
Jarrovians have been out of the league structure for a couple of years, however, have returned to league rugby this year, and have been competitive in all three fixtures so far this season. Last time out the visitors lost 19-27 to TDSOB whilst P&S were again picking up two losing bonus points in the 44-38 defeat at Newton Aycliffe.
Chris Russell has a large squad available despite losing Jonathon Dodds to a broken wrist. His place in the backline is taken by the returning Graham Crosby. John Robson is also available to add an abrasive edge to an exciting backline. In the pack, Adam Murphy has recovered from the leg injury which saw him miss last week, and Clive Robson is in line to make his first appearance of the season.
