IT will be a return to home comforts for Crosfields and Woolston Rovers on another busy weekend of amateur rugby league.

After promising away victories last time out, both National Conference League sides will be looking to push on further on their own patch.

In Division Two, Soap welcome second-place Wigan St Judes on Saturday as they aim to build on an impressive victory at league leaders Ince Rose Bridge last time out.

However, they will be facing a side that have bested them twice already in 2019.

A 41-30 defeat last month was preceded by a one-point defeat in the Challenge Cup first round in January, but the sides are yet to meet at Hood Lane.

Ian Boden’s side sit eighth in the table – three points shy of the final play-off place.

Meanwhile, Rovers are ploughing along in Division Three as they top the table on points difference from Hunslet Warriors.

Waterhead Warriors, who sit seventh in the current standings, are the visitors to Monk Sports Club on Saturday and Woolston head coach Mal Holt says they will not be underestimated.

He also wants to see an improvement in performance from his side despite winning at Hensingham last time out.

“We will be going into the game in a very positive frame of mind but in no way will we underestimate Waterhead,” he said.

“They have claimed some fantastic wins so far so we will certainly be preparing for a tough battle.

“I was a little disappointed with the way we played last week and hopefully we can perform at the top of our game on Saturday.”
