Both Fylde Hawks and Fylde Saracens are at home on Saturday, welcoming Firwood Waterloo and Warrington to the Woodlands respectively, both kicking off at 14.15.
The Hawks have slipped to 6th place in the Cotton Traders Premier League and will be looking to get their campaign back on a winning track against 8th placed Waterloo 2nds. ‘Loo have won two of their games to date, both against Sale FC, and they will pose problems for the home side.

15 Henry Pearson; 14 Stanley Graham, 13 Jake Foster, 12 Daniel Jones, 11 Sam Fisher; 10 Danny Carlton, 9 Jon Green; 1 Josh Oldland, 2 Blake Wilkinson, 3 Ben Gill, 4 Ally Atkinson, 5 Karl Capstick, 6 Tom Beresford, 7 Jamie Brookes, 8 Will Hopwood.
16 Tom Fox, 17 Conner Scrivens, 18 Rob Taylor.
Warrington 2nds are just two places and three points better off than the 8th placed Sarries in the Sale Sharks Division One. The Saracens squad is:
15 Richard Openshaw; 14 Ryan Evans, 13 Tom Hodgkins, 12 Gavin Kelly, 11 Alex Tonge; 10 David William Reed (c), 9 Charlie Cadley; 1 Max Moore, 2 Rupert Cobain, 3 Harry Atkinson, 4 Mark Capstick, 5 Adam Hiles, 6 Richard Appleyard, 7 Tristan Assad, 8 Jamie Griffin.
