HEMSWORTH RUFC will travel to promotion rivals Harrogate Pythons on Saturday (kick-off 2pm) looking to play their scheduled Yorkshire Division Four clash at the second time of asking.

The original game was postponed on Saturday due to a frozen pitch in North Yorkshire.

But a free weekend in the fixture diary has enabled the sides to try again this weekend.

Mark Wilson, head coach of the Moxon Fields men, billed the game as being “massive” last week.

Both sides are gunning for promotion this season and sit level on points going into the clash, with Hemsworth ahead in second spot only on points scoring difference.
