Conference fixtures released

Fixtures for the Rugby League tier 3 Conference leagues have now been released with the Premier, 1 and 2 divisions due to kick off in just 18 days time.

NCL Premier Champions Thatto Heath Crusaders will begin their title defence with a tricky looking game at Leigh East on the opening weekend of Saturday March 3.

After a break for the Carnegie Challenge Cup the Crusaders’ first home game on Saturday March 17 sees a repeat of the 2010-11 Grand Final as Siddal arrive at Close Street, whilst in round three they will hit the road again as they travel to Hull to take on Skirlaugh.

Promoted Oulton Raiders and Myton Warriors will start life in the top flight with games against Wath Brow Hornets and Skirlaugh.

In Division One new boys Hunslet Warriors and Egremont Rangers both begin with away games at Rochdale Mayfield and Castleford Panthers, whilst Wigan St Judes and York Acorn will start their push for a return to the premier division when they start against Millom and Oldham St Annes respectively.

There’s a Wakefield derby in Division Two as Normanton Knights and Eastmoor Dragons meet at Queen Elizabeth drive, and Dewsbury Celtic mark their return to the league with a home game against Heworth.

Conference 3 gets underway on Friday 21 April with Bramley Buffaloes playing host to Warrington Wizards, whilst champions Huddersfield Underbank Rangers will be looking to reclaim their crown starting with a long trip to Hemel Stags.
