WOOLSTON Rovers head coach John Fieldhouse says he has the right kind of selection headache for their trip to Eastmoor Dragons on Saturday, kick off 2.30pm.

The game represents Rovers’ first away trip of the season after opening their campaign with an 18-6 win over Salford City Roosters at Sadore Construction Field on February 25.

They were due to host Waterhead Warriors on Saturday, but the fixture fell foul of the weather.

Fieldhouse says he expects the fixture to go “right to the wire” after three tight games between the two sides in 2017, including a play-off semi final in which Rovers emerged victorious.

“It was disappointing to have our game against Waterhead postponed last week, but there is nothing we can do about that,” he said.

“We just need to focus on Eastmoor and ensure we are ready for what will be a really tough game.

“We faced them three times last year and each game went right to the wire and I don’t expect this Saturday to be any different.

“We should have several more players available this week so picking a side is going to be difficult.

“I will be confident that, whichever 17 goes out onto the field, they will be more than capable of getting the job done and bringing home the two league points.”

Meanwhile, Woolston Rovers A get their campaign off to a belated start against neighbours Crosfields A at Sadore Construction Field, kick off 2.30pm.

Like the first team, Andy Penny’s side saw their game postponed at the weekend, with their trip to Eccleston Lions having to be rearranged.

“Crosfields proved themselves to be very capable in this division last year, so we know that we will need to perform at our best if we are to get our season off on a positive note,” Penny said.

“The lads are all raring to go and we are looking forward to pitting our wits against the Soap.”
