A massive game for both sides. A big win for Wilmslow would see them draw level with us, a big Kendal win could draw us to within a point of Lymm, at the halfway point in the season. Just the one win so far for Wilmslow, at Vale of Lune, every other game has seen a bonus point for the opposition, and they have conceded 50 points in their last four away games. They do have three try scoring ones of their own plus one losing bonus point.
To add to the intrigue the other two in the basement battle, also have winnable games this weekend, with both teams at home to teams with poor away records. Lymm play Sandal whose only away win is at Wilmslow, whilst Vale, on the back of their win to Billingham in their last home game, play Wirral who are still without an away win so far.
This is the first of a run of three games (with the Christmas break in the middle) which could decide where we finish this season, and more importantly start the next one.
TEAM : An interesting selection this weekend. Jack Lashley starts in place of Billy Coxon, with Liam Hayton and John Dervey returning in the second row in place of Ross McKay and Matthew Charters.
Behind the pack Matthew Kaye keeps the scrum half shirt, with the returning Dini Noyo going into the centre, with Danny Barker also returning so Glen Weightman starts on a strong bench with Robbie Collinson and Ben Dixon
WEATHER : Sunny spells and heavy showers.
