EIGHTH-placed Bradford Salem made use of their weekend off to watch Saturday's Yorkshire Division One opponents West Leeds.

The Blue Hill Lane club were in action in the RFU Senior Vase, defeating former giant-killers Aspatria 50-10.

Salem’s chairman Neil Klenk said: “Aspatria were a big set of lads but didn’t help themselves by having three players yellow carded and one red-carded, and you cannot compete when that happens.”

Many players have moved over the years between Salem and West Leeds, who are separated by less than ten miles, and the derby rivalry is always intense.

With Kodie Brook unavailable for Salem, Danny Belcher, who has been suffering with a bad back and illness, is likely to start on the wing for the away clash, with Ryan Smith keeping his full-back berth, while flanker Callum Manchester returns on the bench after injury.

Second-placed West Leeds are not only pushing for Twickenham glory, but are also striving for the sole play-off berth, being five points above York with four matches left.

Keighley, who are seventh gave a chalk-and-cheese performance in defeating relegation-threatened Selby 31-17 a fortnight ago.

“It was the best of us and the worst of us,” admitted Keighley's head coach Danny McGee.

"In the first half we played the sort of rugby that we are striving for and scored some beautiful tries but we let Selby back into the match in the second half."

Keighley will be without injured duo Tom Lowther and Lucas Uren at York, but will have centre Adam Horsfall back in the mix after injury, though they will make a late decision on whether he starts or not.

Bradford & Bingley, who have lost two of their last three matches in North One East, are at Percy Park, trying to prevent their season slipping away after their play-off bid ended, while Old Grovians are praying for some fine weather to make car parking easier before they take on Yorkshire Division Two leaders Moortown at Elm Tree Farm.

Baildon have half-back Robbie Hill and No 8 Dan Cookson back for their mid-table Yorkshire Division Three match at Castleford, but are without injured trio Matty Dixon (concussion), Will Tomlinson (ankle ligaments) and Danny Pollard (hip).

The Jenny Laners conceded three early tries against Skipton last week in a Yorkshire Silver Trophy semi-final, and Baildon coach Andy Pollard said: "What do you expect if you don't come out of the changing room for the first 15 minutes?"
