After two weeks without a game Morley RFC are hoping to get back into action when they are scheduled to travel to Beverley this Saturday.

With more wet weather around the game could be in doubt, but the Maroons will want to play to continue their title challenge in the North One East League.

If it does go ahead Morley will have to quickly shake off any rust, but will be confident of more winning points against opponents currently propping up the division.

Morley proved far too good for the East Yorkshire side at Scatcherd Lane in the sides’ first meeting of the season, winning 57-14 back in September.

Since then they have only lost once while Beverley have only won twice to have collected just 11 points from their 14 matches to Morley’s 60.

The Maroons will be keen to go for a try bonus as well as a victory as they go into the New Year three points behind leaders Doncaster Phoenix.
