RUGBY: Town eager to beat

Have your say

Spalding RFC are hoping that the adverse weather won’t deny them the chance to beat fierce Midlands One East rivals Market Rasen and Louth on Saturday (2.15pm).

Town are scheduled to visit their county foes this weekend, but the big freeze has put the basement battle in real doubt.

Just four points separate the duo in the race for survival – and Spalding skipper Harry Sharman is confident that his side will get the job done if it goes ahead. He said: “It’s always a bit of a humdinger when we meet – but even more so this year. We’re certainly the form side and I’d be quietly confident of a win.

“The lads were hugely impressive last weekend and we are all gunning for Rasen. Hopefully the weather won’t deny us, we want to go there and win.”
