Girls RL Preview (Saturday 27th October)
Posted: Friday 26th October 2018 - 3:28 PM
The Women’s Super League may be over but, that doesn’t mean there are no other games taking place elsewhere.
On the contrary, the U16s and U14s divisions are well under way and we thought it would be a good idea to take a closer look at the action coming up this weekend.
U16s Division One
There are two games in the U16s Division One and without a doubt, the big one features third placed East Leeds Girls take on second placed Featherstone Lionesses.
A victory for the Lionesses will take them within four points of the league leaders, Cutsyke Raidettes. In their first meeting earlier this season, Featherstone ran out 30-8 winners. What’s more, they are on a three-match winning run.
In the second game, somebody’s ‘O’ has got to go as winless Thatto Heath and winless South Leeds New Spartans go head to head.
South Leeds are ahead of Thatto in the table following their 16-16 draw with East Leeds last month. A win will move them three points clear of the foot of the table.
U16s Division Two
In the second division we are preparing for a huge local derby as Hull FC Girls host league leaders Hull KR.
In their last clash, it was Hull KR who ran out 54-12 winners. The Robins will be hoping to replicate that performance this Saturday.
U14s Division One
There are four games taking place in this league with the headline fixture featuring bottom of the table Farnley Falcons taking on table toppers, Fryston Warriors.
While on paper this game would seem like a done deal, last week Fryston only edged Oulton 8-4. A half time team talk from Castleford’s Georgie Hetherington and assistant coach Will Dagger helped the Warriors to get over the line.
Farnley have won three games this season and two of them came at home. A victory for the underdogs could take them all the way up to 6thplace.
Other games include Illingworth v Shaw Cross Sharks, Orrell St. James v East Leeds and Oulton Raidettes v Cutsyke Raidettes. Meanwhile, in the second division, Leigh Miners Rangers host bottom of the table Thornhill Trojans.
