Ones To Watch

Yorkshire Rams – Alexander Saunders

Saunders can be found playing on either side of the ball in most games, he always works hard and it’s fair to say that he’ll have some scores to settle against the Wolverines this Sunday.

Lancashire Wolverines – Wide Receiver Unit


As much as Quarterback David Mead has to do with the Wolverines’ success this season, credit has to go to the Wide Receivers on the team too. Mead seems capable of connecting with any of them without issue and the Rams secondary will have to be wary of threats from all over the field.


We look forward to another “War of the Roses” this time on the other side of the Pennines as the Rams look to get their season back on track whilst the Wolverines will be wanting to keep pace with Tamworth and East Kilbride at the top of the NFC Premier.

Entry is free to spectators and is a double header with the Wolverines’ Junior team, who are also playing the Chorley Buccaneers. The Junior kickoff is scheduled for 12pm and the Senior game will kickoff at around 2.30pm. The address for travelling supporters is: Blackburn Rugby Club, Ramsgreave Drive, Blackburn BB1 8NB
