New Earswick All Blacks Rugby League Club face the daunting task of playing two finals in the space of two days.

Thir cup success this season has earned them the right to battle it out for both the Accident Cup and the White Rose Trophy.

However, a quirk in the fixtures has meant that they will have to fit both games in this week.

New Earswick start their assault for silverware at 7pm tonight when they entertain York Acorn in the York and District Accident Cp.

On Thursday they travel to Hunslet for the White Rose Trophy final.

Club spokesman Simon Mallarky told the Evening Press: "It has taken ages to sort out dates for these games and now we have got to play them within the space of two days.

"It means we will have to rotate our squad. I think only three or four players will play in both games."

Jamie Rhodes, Steve Perks and Alan Pallister are the most likely to be handed the lung-busting task of back-to-back games.

However, despite having to cram in the two games, the All Blacks believe they have a good chance of finishing with both cups in their trophy cabinet.

"We are looking forward to both games and are confident that we can win them both," added Mallarky.

All Blacks' Under-8s rose to the challenge of playing front of nearly 15,000 at the Bradford Bulls when they beat Hindpool Tigers by five tries to three.

Sam Gell's strength got him four of the tries in the curtain-raiser to the Bulls' Super League clash against Castleford Tigers. The All Blacks' other try was scored by Spencer Mitchell.
