Beavers Face Tough Trip To Newcastle

RUFC embark upon the long journey up to Newcastle this weekend to take on Northern RFC in the North 1 (East) league fixture.

This will be a tough match for the Beavers following their emphatic victories in the last couple of weeks, firstly against Durham City and then Darlington. They will need to come back down to earth on Saturday for Northern, judging by their results, will be difficult to beat on their own patch.

They maybe below halfway in the league table but are amongst a clutch of clubs on or around the 20 points mark and only one victory away from the top 5 or 6.

The Beavers have a number of niggling injuries to monitor at training this week and will therefore not finalise their selection until Friday morning.

They name an enlarged squad prior to that and although Joe Pickets is not fit, James Holland is included and, if he suffers no reaction from his injury, will make a welcome return after missing all but 10 minutes of the first game of the season.
