After their excellent win at Sandal, Pocklington return to Percy Road to entertain Wirral in their last home league game of the season (3.00 pm).

Wirral will be making their first ever visit to Pocklington. They convincingly beat Pocklington in the first meeting of the sides in Cheshire back in September and sit five places above Pock in the North Premier table. But Pocklington will be hoping to carry last week's improvement into the game to end their home season on a high note. Ed Liversidge and Matt Procter, both leading lights last week, are unavailable, but threequaters Jack Walters, Jonty Peters and Tom Richardson and back row Karl Durkin all return.

Saturday is also going to be a big day on the sidelines. It is the club's Ladies Day and all lady supporters are welcome to visit 'Trishia's Tavern', the inflatable pub specially brought in for the day. The game is also being sponsored by the Diogenes, the band of ex-players and supporters who are holding one of their regular reunions.

The Panthers have a big test as they travel to Sheffield Tigers for a top of the table clash which could see the winners promoted. The Pilgrims are on tour to Northumberland.

The Under 16s and Under 14s are both at home on Sunday morning.
