Scarborough RUFC’s teenage forward James Leach returns to action on Saturday at Bradford Salem following almost four months sidelined by injury.

He plays in the second row with Mikey Readman. Other pack change sees Ian Williams return at hooker with last week’s man-of-the-match Liam Murray and Mark Hopper propping and Ben Martin starts in the back row.

In a re-shuffled back division skipper Tom Ratcliffe moves to full-back with Joe Lenton starting on the wing. Ant Coffey moves to the centres with Tomasz Chadwick starting at fly-half. Hayden Ogilvie, Jack Ireland and Billy Parker are on the bench.

Bradford Salem ended a six match losing run with a 34-5 home win against strugglers Selby last week.

Elsewhere, the Vikings and the Danesmen are in action at Silver Royd against Driffield and Withernsea respectively. All games kick off at 2.15pm.

It’s Six Nations weekend and Wales entertain France at the re-named Principality Stadium on Friday evening.

On Saturday Italy host Scotland at the Olympic Stadium in Rome at 2.25pm, while Ireland are the visitors to Twickenham to take on England at 4.50pm.

All four games can be seen on the big screens in the clubhouse at Silver Royd.
