Wetherby name a strong side to face Thornensians at Grange Park this coming Saturday.

Wetherby face South Yorkshire rivals Thornensians this week as the club look to celebrate their 50th anniversary in style.

A crowd of 200+ is expected for the final game of the season with the Reds looking to sign off the season by picking up 4th place in Yorkshire Two.

Club captain Danny Warden returns to the starting line up and says "finishing forth in our first season in Yorkshire Two would be a great achievement after promotion from three last year. We owe Thorne a beating after they knocked us out of National Cup contention and beating is in the Silver Trophy Final last year."

Thorne edged a close game earlier in the season beating Wetherby by 1 point in a tight 8-7 win.

Wetherby will be without top try scorer Myles Oates but have a clean bill of health elsewhere.

Kick off is at 3:00pm at Grange Park.

Wetherby from:

E Griffiths, M Chappel, B Mason, T Bottomley, D Warden (c), J Greenwood, T Edwards, G Gilbert, H Kaye, J Kaye, E Blackwell, A Dus, B Roberts, A Trotman, C Atkinson, S Hoather, S Wallis.
