Competitive rugby is back for the 1st XV this weekend. The boys travel just up the road to face Dunlop RFC in the first league game of the season.
After a good solid performance last week in our pre season game away at Pinley the boys are feeling confident of getting the season off to a flyer.
Unfortunately our 1st team captain Liam McCrea has been ruled out for at least 6 months with a bicep tendon rupture. James Fisher will take over the captaincy while Liam recovers. Congrats Fishy!!
Ben Craig, Alan Beauchamp and Mark Wilson start in the front row with last season regulars Fisher and Guy Maycock completing the front 5. Darren Perry starts at 6 and will make his Wheats debut. James Moffit is rewarded with 7 shirt after impressing in pre season. James Przybek starts at 8.
The half backs are Sam Eaton and Gareth Windsor. A strong running centre partnership with James Hancox and Ross Harrison. A speedy back 3 of Lewis Faulkner, Steve Pahal and Jamie Hutton complete the starting line up.
There are 2 new faces on the bench with James King and Rory Meechan. The youngsters will want to make an impact from the bench!
Kick off is at 3pm come down and support the boys!!!
