DAVID Cairns has some tough choices to make for Furness Raiders’ squad to face Wakefield College tonight (7pm kick-off).

The Raiders have made a strong start to the College Rugby League Premier Division season, picking up three wins from their first four matches with a number of the younger players coming to the fore.

The visit of Wakefield tonight is followed by a match against another of the strongest teams in the competition, Hopwood Hall, and Furness head coach Cairns is weighing up who will get an opportunity.

“We’ve had 25 to pick from this week, so it’s given me a few decisions to make,” said Cairns.

“A lot of it is to do with age, a lot of it is to do with structure and knowing how we’re playing.

“You want to get lads in, but I think these next two games are very important because they are against the strongest teams in the league and you’ve got to make sure you play your strongest team.”

The match will be the first played at Craven Park since the floodlights were repaired and Cairns hopes there will be a good crowd there to cheer the team on.

“The lights look fantastic,” said Cairns. “The college is a great facility to train at, but to have Craven Park available to us with good lighting makes a good difference.

“I hope people try to support it because these are the best young lads in the area, and people should go down and have a look at them.”
