Should be an interesting one, with two teams not in the best form, each picking up just one win and six points since Christmas.
An amazing turn around for Rossendale, who had won seven of the ten games in the run into Christmas, plus a draw and a losing bonus point, to sit in fourth place with 46 points, but have now dropped back to ninth. This was followed by a run of six loses in a row, broken last weekend at home to bottom club Wilmslow.
For Kendal a good performance and a few promising debuts last weekend at Billingham, following the disappointment of losing a potentially winning position at Mintbridge three weeks ago, plus seeing Lymm pick up ten points in their last two games, means that we really need a result this weekend to try to narrow that gap (they are at Hull).
TEAM : Just three changes to the squad from last weekend, and they are players returning after not being available last weekend, but lots of positional changes.
Jack Lashley comes off the bench to replace Billy Coxon in the front row. Matthew Charters moves forward from No.8 to second row, in place of Chris Evans. Kirk Chettleburgh and Chris Downham return to the back row, with Robbie Collinson moving to the bench. Alistair Thompson retains his place.
The same halfbacks, so Wayne Ngubane makes his Mintbridge debut. Myles Harrop returns on the left wing, so Mark Carruthers moves into the centre, Kris Bratton to fullback, and Chris Park to the bench.
Mike Bradshaw, who played well when he came on last weekend, retains his place on the bench.
WEATHER : Wet earlier but could be dry for kick off at 3.00pm
