Beverley ARLFC will be looking to continue their winning start to the season. They hit the road this weekend as they face Wigan St Judes.
Last time out Bevelrey’s Coach, Tony Spence was more than happy with his team’s performance.
He watched his team grind out a positive result against a tricky Woolston Rovers side at the Beverley Leisure Centre.
This week’s opponents in the National Conference League will certainly provide an altogether different challenge.
Last season Wigan St Judes just missed out on promotion. As a result of their efforts, they are one of the favourites to win promotion this season.
Those inside the club say should Beverley win at the weekend it would most certainly set down a marker for the season.
However, they are under no illusions and know they will need to be at their best to get the win.
Aside from winning last week, Beverley also picked up a few injury concerns. Tom Moor suffered a fractured cheekbone. He was joined in the treatment room by Luke Inglis and also Bobby Howdle who both hurt their ankles.
As a result of their game against Woolston Roversbeing so physical Spence likely to wait before naming his squad.
