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

SINCE Covid-19 caused us to temporarily abandon door-to-door CLUB CASH lottery collections last Spring there’s never been a better time to come on board and help Roughyeds to get through these hugely challenging times.

Why? The £500-a-week rollover jackpot is back — not only that there are now TWO £50 prizes and TWO £25 prizes in addition to the first prize of £1,000, a second prize of £100 and ten consolation prizes of £10.

But the return of the jackpot is the big lottery news. It’s back this week and it’s been won first time out, so next week’s jackpot is again £500 but if nobody touches lucky it will go up to £1,000 the following week and increase by £500 a week, if not won, to a maximum of £10,000.

We have seriously missed the regular income from collections on the doorstep, but we cannot thank too much those supporters who have got behind the club in these unprecedented times of hardship by keeping their Club Cash memberships going or, indeed, by joining for the first time, knowing that for £1 a week they can help the club to combat Covid and prepare with confidence for the challenges of Betfred Championship rugby in 2021.

You can send a cheque to cover a set number of weeks; take out a bank standing order — our preferred option; complete a bank transfer; or pay for several weeks up front by credit or debit card.

You can download a standing order form by clicking on the link at the end of this news release and following the instructions or you can contact our Club Cash administrator John McAndrew (tel: 07980 129541; email: mcandrewj@aol.com) or speak to the club direct on 07904 898177 or email to: enquiries@roughyeds.co.uk

The easiest way, though, is to download a standing order form below. The latest prize updates are shown on the form as follows (all for £1): £1,000, £100, £50 (2), £25 (2), a number of £10 consolation prizes and the £500-a-week rollover jackpot.

Best of luck!
