One of the games of the weekend could come in NCL’s Division Three when third-placed Woolston Rovers clash with league leaders Drighlington.

Both teams have made a flying start to the season and both are on six points after winning all three of their opening games.

Woolston boss Mal Holt is looking forward to this big encounter saying: “This will be our stiffest test so far but one that we are really looking forward to. Drighlington have had three fine wins just like ourselves so it really promises to be a very exciting encounter.

“We are really happy with how we have started the year but know that we will need to improve even more on Saturday if we are to get the win. We will be working on some areas in training to ensure that we are ready to give put in a good performance.”

Woolston kicked off their campaign with a slender 20-16 win away at Heworth. Rovers then restricted Batley Boys to just two points as they went on to claim a 10-2 victory in West Yorkshire.

In their last outing, Woolston proved too strong for Hensingham and ran out 38-14 winners in their first home game of the season.

Drighlington, who were relegated from Division Two last season, began their campaign with an away 34-18 win over the Salford City Roosters. They then followed up with a comfortable 30-6 victory over Millom.

However, things were a lot more intense two weeks ago when the Leeds outfit held on for a narrow 22-20 win away at Leigh East.
