Leigh Miners travel to East Leeds on Saturday to play in Round 10 of the NCL Kingstone Press Cider Premier Division, Kick off 2-30pm at The Snake Pit.

Miners travel to Yorkshire on the back of two derby victories against Wigan St Judes (62-0) and Wigan St Pats (20-18) which was pleasing after losing Lee Gittins to a badly dislocated knee and Adam Thomason in the first half to go on and produce a good second half performance after trailing 12-6 at the break to come back and win to move into 5th position in the league before the NCL took a break last week for the Super League Magic Weekend. The lads have had a good two weeks training in preparation for this game and are expecting a much tougher encounter than the one at Twist Lane in March when Miners where comfortable 32-8 against a big East Leeds side who where coming off a defeat against Championship Grand Final winners Sheffield Eagles the week before in the third round of the Tetley’s Challenge Cup.

Coaches Allan Coleman & Paul Whitworth will be forced into making at least five changes from the St Pats game with Matt Astley Lee Gittins and Adam Thomason all being ruled out through injury, Ellis Grimes away for the weekend and Danny Jackson who is missing due to a family wedding. Coming into the side are Martin Gray Danny Jones Darryl Kay and Jack Probert.

East Leeds have made a steady start  to life back in the Premier Division winning five, drawing one and losing three of their nine games played so far this season to leave them a place below Miners in 6th place, if Easts can continue with this sort of form for the remainder of the season they will be confident of making the end of season playoffs in their first season back in the top flight after over a ten year absence.

Leigh Miners 2nd team are at home on Saturday against Culcheth Eagles in the league, Kick off 2-30pm at Twist Lane.

The u18s played on Wednesday night away at Ince Rose Bridge, going down 34-18 in what was a bruising encounter throughout.

Leigh Miners Ladies are at home on Sunday against Chorley Pink Panthers in the league, Kick off 2pm at Twist Lane.
