On Saturday we entertain Doncaster Phoenix in our first home game at level 5 for over 20 years and the lads can't wait. It's a 3.00pm kick off but we will be open for business in the clubhouse from 1.00pm as usual. 

After our opening day success on the road at Burton the anticipation around Saturday's home game is infectious and whilst we know that we have a tough job on our hands the whole Club is eagerly looking forward to this clash. 

The game is kindly being sponsored by Trent Design & Engineering, who is also one of the Club's Partner Sponsors.

30 odd years ago Mel Sudbury, our then Fixtures Secretary and subsequent President, made what was then a bold move in arranging more fixtures against South and West Yorkshire clubs. It was much tougher rugby but the decision was fully vindicated by our rapid improvement as a Club. On the back of that we entered the original league structure at Level 5 where we flourished for many years. The games were hard and physical and we expect no less when Doncaster Phoenix make their first ever visit to Burntstump on Saturday.

Throughout the season a whole host of Clubs, like Doncaster, will be enjoying a visit to Burntstump Hill for the very first time. We look forward to entertaining them all and hope as many of you as possible will be there to see these new visitors and to get behind the lads to give them the vital edge to come out on top.
