Baildon's home record is under threat
Baildon, making their home debut in SSE Yorkshire Division Two against Knottingley on Saturday after a 55-0 drubbing at Hullensians, but defending an unbeaten record at Jenny Lane that stretches back to October 2011, welcome back brothers Nicky and Hayden Lister and Andy Magee.
However, they are without the injured Alistair Beaumont and Connor Ward.
Skipper James Cunliffe is back for Bradford Salem at home to Ripon, but they face a late choice of who will partner him in the second row – Ben Scarbrough, John Morrell or Sam Leach.
Cleckheaton secured five league points from their 31-23 victory at Malton & Norton last weekend in SSE North One East.
But fixture secretary Alan Bentley confessed: “The coaches were happy with the result but not with the performance.
“We let them back into the game in the second half when we should have been out of sight.”
Back into the squad for the home match against Rochdale come second row Ryan Piercy and centre Matt Piper, whio were on a stag weekend in Ibiza last weekend.
Old Grovians, who are at Old Modernians in SSE Yorkshire Division Three, will be missing injured duo Will Blackhall and Dominic Copsey but could have Sam Robinson and Gareth Phillips back.
