Furness will be hoping for better luck this afternoon as they welcome Wigton to the Strawberry Grounds in Cumbria Division One, as they look to pick up their first win of the season.

Last week, a front row shortage hit the squad hard, which led to the team being unable to travel to St Benedicts but back on home turf they will surely pull together and get their show on the road.

An injury to Joe Mallinson keeps the influential forward out of action but fingers crossed brother Will will be on hand to keep the team going forward.

Dillon Taputu and Corne Els are also key to the team amongst the forwards alongside Ben Hughes at hooker. With the final selection to be confirmed, Furness will be hoping they go strong into this game and kick-start their campaign.

Last week’s heavy defeat away at Whitehaven will have be a hard pill to swallow after such a great win in the first game of the season, but Windermere are not the sort of team to lick their wounds.

They look really strong this week at their Dawes Meadow home, where Cockermouth are the visitors and the hosts will be looking for a repeat outcome from their opening home game against Silloth.

Amongst the players Windermere will be able to welcome back are the front three of Jamie Hardman, Dan Harrison and Luke Todd.

Skipper Johnny Benson leads from No.8 as he looks to his forwards to give good clean ball to scrum-half Liam Mckinnon and his fly-half partner in crime Bertie Hodgson.

Moses Dawson moves back to full back with Joe Williams and Dave Armstrong in the centres on hand to break the opposition line.

It’s a big game in store for the Ambers this weekend but one they can win, even though Cockermouth have ‘nilled’ their two opponents so far.
