SCARBOROUGH fly-half Tom Harrison admits his side have a point to prove when they meet rivals Bridlington at Silver Royd on Saturday.

Harrison, who is also the club’s Youth Development Officer, acknowledges that when the sides met at Dukes Park earlier in the season, they were outclassed and deserved to lose the game.

But the former Team Northumbria man wants to see a better performance from the Silver Royd side, in front of an expected bumper crowd at their Scalby base.

He said: “We massively underperformed when we played them earlier in the season.

“They were a physical side and they outclassed us.

“But it’s set to be a good game with a good crowd behind us.

“We’re coming good just at the right time in the season, so a win could take us nicely into the second half of the campaign.”

Scarborough will be without South African Nino Cutino, who is back home for Christmas, but Harrison added: “We’ve got players who are good enough to come in and do the job for us.”

l Entry to the derby game is charged at £4.50 for adults, with children getting in free of charge.
