Crunch collision for Selby RUFC
11:46am Friday 16th November 2012 in Sport
Selby RUFC will be toppled from the Yorkshire Two summit if they are downed by Doncaster Phoenix.
It’s first versus second at Sandhill Lane with just a point separating the Swans from their South Yorkshire challengers. Having lost two of the last three games, following a run of seven matches without defeat, Selby coach Richard Nicholson is keen for his side to rediscover their winning touch and keep looking down at the rest of the division.
“It doesn’t get much bigger,” he said. “We haven’t played at home for a few weeks and we are looking forward to that. If you had offered me eight wins out of ten to start the season, I would have taken it.
“We didn’t perform at Yarnbury last time. We had one or two players missing but that was no excuse. We just didn’t play. That was a bit disappointing but we have had a really good response since then and, hopefully, we will bounce back.
“We know a little bit about Doncaster. We’ve had them watched. They are a good side, very well organised, and they’ve had two or three key players come back to the club after playing at a higher level. We are expecting a really tough game.”
York RI are at Hessle in Yorkshire Three.
