Pocklington welcome Lymm on Saturday in a home North Premier encounter at 3.00 pm - kick-off times have now reverted to the later 3.00 pm for the rest of the season.

Lymm will be making their first ever visit to Pocklington. The Cheshire side have been in the league's top two for most of the campaign, and are still challenging for a play-off place. Pocklington struggled to cope with the home backs when they went to Lymm back in October, but they will be hoping that their recent improved form will stand them in better stead this week. They should also have a handful of players back in contention who were unavailable last time out a fortnight ago.

Ireland v Scotland (2.15) and France v England (4.45) are also on the big screen in the clubhouse.

Contrary to the RFU website, which has us down to play on Easter Saturday, Pocklington's postponed league game at Harrogate is agreed for next Saturday, 17 March, St Patrick's Day. Back at the club next Saturday, all three 6-Nations internationals are on the big screen, then there is a night of live music with Bad, Blues and Righteous.

The Panthers go to Sheffield Medics this week to continue their challenge for the South & East Yorkshire Merit League, while the Pilgrims are at Malton.

There is also junior rugby on Sunday morning, including the Under 15s and U13s hosting local rivals Goole at 11.00 am.
