Ryan Duckett wants Otley to keep up the good work
Otley’s director of rugby Ryan Duckett does not want his team to lower their standards in SSE National League Two North.
Having seen them lose 26-21 at home to Hull in a poor display three weekends ago, Duckett watched his team defeat Stourbridge 13-12, again at Cross Green.
He said of last weekend’s display: “We lacked intensity against Hull but this was a triumph for all of our players from No 1 to No 20.
“Now we need to repeat it tomorrow at home to Luctonians.”
Wharfedale, who are only nine points above safety, face first-time visitors Loughborough Students in SSE National League One.
The Greens make one change behind the scrum, James Tincknell starting in the centre, Joe Donkin dropping to the bench.
Alastair Allen returns after a week off at flanker, with Aaron Myers continuing at No 8, and prop Neil Dickinson makes his first appearance of the season on the bench after proving that age is no barrier.
Wharfedale (home to Loughborough Students): A Whaites; L Davies, L Gray, J Tincknell, S Horsfall; T Barrett, P Woodhead; A Howard, S Graham, M Tampin, R Brown, R Rhodes, A Allen, A Myers, D Solomi. Replacements: N Dickinson, I Larkin, J Mason, T Wareing, J Donkin,.
