HE is the Australian leg-spinner with the nearly famous surname, but the opponents of Pool's prolific leg spinner James Rosewarne must feel as if they are facing the legendary Shane this season, due to the sheer volume of his wickets.

Rosewarne has proved a menace in the Aire-Wharfe league and leads the list of Division One wicket takers with 22 victims to his name, marking his arrival at Pool with a career best 7-35 in the opening match against North Leeds.

He’s also weighed in with more than 200 runs, including a half century last weekend when Pool pulled off a shock win over league leaders Otley.

His side take on Rawdon this weekend, whose own Australian all-rounder Marcus Berryman is only four wickets behind Rosewarne and was the star of the show last week.

Berryman smashed 125 not out in 87 balls, as he and Andrew Duckworth (68no) clinched a thrilling win over second placed Burley.

Rawdon, who are looking for a third consecutive win, will start as slight favourites but with David Amos also in good form with the ball, Pool will fancy their chances of upsetting the odds again.

Otley and Burley have an opportunity to regroup against sides in the doldrums, Otley against rock-bottom defending champions Beckwithshaw and Burley at tenth-placed Adel.

Ilkley overcame Adel last week thanks to a five-wicket haul from Dave Pennett.

They now have a chance to pull clear of the lower regions when they travel to Bilton, the side just below them in the table, but the home side will also be confident after grabbing victory over Horsforth.

It has been an up and down season for Horsforth so far but they should get back on track against struggling Guiseley if they can contain Heynrych Nel.

The undoubted match of the day in Division Two sees leaders Addingham travel to fourth-placed Hall Park.

Tom Lester, who made 77 as Park thrashed Kirkstall last week, needs six more runs to reach 300 this season, and with Mark McEneaney in fine form with bat and ball, they will fancy their chances of an upset.

But Addingham have suffered only one defeat so far – to Saltaire – and in Will Atkinson and Ted Haggas have players who can challenge any attack.

Tong Park Esholt will be ready to reclaim top spot if Addingham falter and should be too strong for Ben Rhydding.

Newly-confident Steeton will be looking for a third win in a row and another step out of the relegation zone when they travel to Olicanian.

Saltaire need to recapture the form they showed against Addingham to end a three-match losing streak, in which they have twice been bowled out for less than 100.

They should end the drought at bottom club Calverley, who look set for a long hard summer.

Defeat by Harden saw Green Lane knocked off the top of Division Three last week and they face another massive challenge with the visit of third-placed Bardsey, who have won their last five matches, hitting 1,400 runs in the process.

Harden should strengthen their challenge at Alwoodley while Bolton Villas’ bowling attack is likely to be too good for Menston.

Skipton can build on last week’s win over St Chads Broomfield, which included an unbeaten century from Ben Holderness, when they travel to Shadwell, who have yet to win an Aire-Wharfe match.
