Marple 1st XV travel away to Thornton Cleveleys (FY5 3SX) in the 5th game of the season, with a 50% win record so far Marple will be hoping to catch the hosts in a congested mid table in the ADM 1st Division. A costly win last weekend means several players miss out through injury, with no 2nd team game the clubs depth is shown with players stepping up from the 2s squad.
The 3rd XV travel away to Old Bedians 2s ( M20 5QX) in what is turning into a tough Division 4 East for Captain Budd. Marple will want to put in a good performance and get their season kick started.
No 2s game this week with Burnage unable to get a side out, fingers crossed they can find bodies for the remainder of the season.
Both games kick off at 3pm.
