SCARBOROUGH RUFC head coach Dave Beck is looking for back-to-back wins when his side host Knottingley in Yorkshire One on Saturday.

The men from Silver Royd claimed a fine 28-17 victory at Dinnington last Saturday and Beck is confident they can continue their winning form.

He said: “The Dinnington result was very positive because we had to switch things around a bit and try one or two different things, but the lads responded well.

“Rob James moved from full-back to fly-half and was our man of the match in what was his fourth position of the season that he has played.

“We played some good rugby and were strong in the pack at Dinnington and that was the basis of our success.”

Scarborough did lose out away to Knottingley earlier in the campaign 20-16 back in November, but Beck believes his side now have more about them.

He added: “We have found a bit more consistency now and a way of getting a more settled squad, although there will always be injuries and people unavailable for various different reasons throughout any campaign.

“Graeme Jeffrey returns for us at the weekend, which is a big plus because he has had a decent season, but Luke Raines is not available so Matty Else will start the game after being on the bench last Saturday.

“We might have to switch some things around again, but it is not a major problem because players have shown they can do a job in other positions than what they are used to.”

Knottingley picked up a narrow 25-22 victory over Huddersfield at home last time out and are just two places behind Scarborough in the league table.

Beck said: “They have found some decent form and any team in the division is a threat.

“We have been working very hard in training but it is a shame that not all the players can train consistently, so we have to pick those who can.

“We are doing our best to have a strong end to the season.”
