KENDAL will hope to make it four wins in a row in North One East this weekend when they travel to take on title hopefuls Moortown.

The Cumbrians had a break at the weekend which aided their recovery after a tough test in very difficult, wet conditions against Pocklington the previous weekend.

In fact the weather was so bad that the game was abandoned with 15 minutes still to play and the score tight at 17-10, with Kendal being credited with the victory.

There was still some doubt whether the home side would be rewarded the four points after the teams were locked in a tight tussle in heavy downpours, but the RFU included the result on its website to suggest the result stands.

They are set to return to action on Saturday and must make it past the division’s fourth-placed side if they are to do notch their fourth successive win.

Kendal, who are two places and 11 points behind this weekend’s opponents, have beaten Pocklington, Huddersfield YMCA and Morley on their winning run.

The only games in the division which did go ahead last weekend saw fifth-placed Morley beat eighth-placed Malton and Norton 14-12, while Pocklington entertained Durham City and were pipped 14-15, with their opponents leapfrogging the in the table to climb into 10th.

This Saturday league leaders York, who have a healthy 10-point lead in the division, are set to hit the road to take on struggling Percy Park.

Bradford & Bingley, who currently sit in ninth, will host Morley, while the league’s two bottom sides will face off in a crunch clash when rock bottom Huddersfield YMCA welcome West Hartlepool.

Durham City go to seventh-placed Scarborough but possibly the tastiest encounter of the weekend will see championship-chasing Cleckheaton and Driffield, who are second and third in the league respectively, look to secure a vital victory which they hope will close the gap to the runaway leaders.

The final game will see Malton and Norton play at home to Pocklington.
