Furness are on the road today, as they west to face Workington, who seem to have turned the corner in Cumbria Division One.

The Blues almost had a great result at home last week, as they came close to turning over top-of-the-table Cockermouth in a closely fought game before eventually losing 17-6.

Hopefully, they can count on the same troops to travel, which skipper Corne Els will need to make a difference in the result.

Will Mallinson is a real stalwart for the club and will be hoping his brother Joe is good to go this week to stiffen up the pack alongside Mark Hall, Ben Hughes and Cameron McClure.

Iestyn Humphries will no doubt lead the backline, with Jordan Ashton on hand to help pull the strings for wingers Danny Spears and Brad Williamson.

Fingers are crossed that David Finlayson can pull a jersey on from his half-back role with centres Joe Satterthwaite and Dale Lambton ready to take the ball on. Final selection is to be confirmed but Furness should have a decent shout in this fixture.

Windermere are also on their travels this afternoon as they travel to Kirkby Stephen to face Upper Eden.

Last week’s 22-3 home defeat against Egremont will no doubt give Mere a kick in the right direction as they look to take on a young and fast Eden team.

Half-backs and good ball will need to be on show as Liam Mckinnon and Bertie Hodgson will aim to pull the strings with captain Jonny Benson looking to his forwards to facilitate that.

John Longworth and Paul Mahler are the powerhouses in the second row pushing on the front three of Jamie Hardman, Luke Todd and Tyrone Alderson.

The back row will need to be on top form and will have Greg Meschino and the returning Adam Hague joining Benson looking to upset the apple cart.

Points decide games and as such, with Liam Garnett and Moses Dawson out wide, the Ambers have scorers on hand as long as the ball is good from the men inside them in centres Damien Armstrong and Joe Williams.

Full back Ben Gibson brings up the rear in a side that looks good enough to cause an upset against a team who start the day fifth in the table.
