High-flying Ashfield RUFC will face Cleethorpes without a number of forwards.

The game has been re-arranged after the previous league fixture on 31st January was cancelled.

Mark Denman, director of rugby, said: “our back line is particularly strong, possibly as strong as we have seen over the past six or seven matches.

“Dan Wilson comes back into contention and should have a part to play as we ease him back from a long term injury.

“We have a few forwards missing so a few wise old heads have been drafted into the squad.”

The reverse fixture saw a 27-25 home victory for Ashfield in mid-October in what was a close affair throughout the 80 minutes and possibly one Ashfield were not expecting.
