Hawkyard gets a well-earned rest

​Action man Ritchie Hawkyard, whose kamikaze performances all season have endeared him to Roughyeds fans, gets a well-earned rest tomorrow (Sun) when Scott Naylor’s men take on Coventry Bears at the rugby union club in the Warwickshire market town of Rugby, accessed via junction 1 off the M6 and kicking off at 3pm.

Postcode for the ground on Webb Ellis Road is CV22 7AU.

Named man of the match in the last game against Doncaster, 33-year-old Hawkyard’s omission from the 19-man squad is one of four changes compared with the 19 named for the last game.

Out go Hawkyard, Zack McComb, Danny Bridge and Ed Smith, to be replaced by Luke Hooley, Jamie Greenwood, Jack Spencer and Ben Davies.

McComb (shoulder), Bridge (shoulder), Smith (ribs) and Spencer (back) have been under treatment during the week.

Hooley and Adam Brook were the two members of the last squad who didn’t play. They are included again.

Squad: Beckett, Bent, Brook, Crook, Davies, Greenwood, Hewitt, Holmes. Hooley, Johnson, Joy, Kay, Langtree, Law, Leeming, Owen, Spencer, Whittel, Wilkinson.

Club Cash Lottery

In challenging times for businesses we are again stressing our urgent need for more financial support via the Club Cash lottery from both existing and new members.

With door-to-door collections temporarily abandoned, some have paid up front to cover a few weeks; moved to direct debit; or completed a bank transfer but the overall result has seen a drop in lottery income of nearly 50 per cent.

This trend is hitting all clubs and organisations and we have had to temporarily modify the weekly prize structure in line with the number of people taking part.

We still have a weekly first prize of £1,000 and other prizes of £100, £50 and £25 plus some £10 consolation prizes and we urgently and seriously need people to help us on this.

One way is to download a direct debit form here and follow the instructions.
