Hawcoat Park will be looking to put last week’s disappointing defeat away at Upper Eden behind them when they host Silloth in Cumbria Division One this afternoon.

Late cry offs and three injuries during the game left Hawcoat on the back foot which left the game going only one way, as Upper Eden ran out 47-0 winners against their depleted visitors.

There are a number of changes for the Maroon and Whites this week with injuries and unavailability a key factor.

Colin Niven, and Andy Kent will both be looking to start from prop this week with Scott Dobbie also hopeful of making an appearance, joining hooker Adam Grainger in the front row.

John Donnan looks to be getting over his ankle injury and could well be alongside Andy Graham in pushing the front three on.

The back row will be led by Alfie White with Joe Rea and Harry Higgins in close proximity making a nuisance of themselves at the break down.

Jack Shannon and George Smith will play the half-back role with centres Will Coles and Jason Milby back together again in there familiar roles.

Keenan Cotton and Alex Brown are likely to be given the wing roles with either Lewis Sayle or Benji Platt taking the full back jersey. With Matt Burrows also available selection for both the ‘A’ and first teams, this could change yet further.

After no game last week, Hawcoat’s second string welcome Vale of Lune 3rd XV for their last home game of the season, with a run of six away games on the bounce to look forward too.

Peter Jennens is pulling a side together that will hopefully give the Maroon and Whites their second win in a row which would be a much-needed lift for the Barrow side, who have been short of victories this season.

‘Mr Fantastic’ James Dunne is hoping to lead the backline again after his five-try hail in the 55-7 win away at Rossendale 3rd XV two weeks ago, with the returning Jake Rigg a really strong centre runner outside him.

Scott Garnett is likely to be feed Dunne good ball, with wing men Adam Armstrong and Jay Crow looking for early touches to get over the whitewash.

Jack Fawcett, Lewis Phillips and Ben Hughes make up the front three, with Stalwart Martin Kennedy behind them in the second row.

Skipper Jennens is likely to start from the back row with Pete Matthews in the back three. Connor Mcdermott, Corey Doughty and Mark Hall finish off the squad.
