Skirlaugh will look to avoid the drop this weekend when Leigh East visit Eastside, Skirlaugh are likely to welcome back Sean Wildbore for what will be his farewell appearance

Desipe what happened last week its been turbulent for both clubs now is the time to concentrate on RL

Colin Brown has asked me to extend his welcome to the players committee and supporters of Leigh East stating the clubs have been involved in great games over the years and have always had a good relationship and one incident shouldnt change that

That's nice well done big man , hope it's a great game I spoke with a east player today and they are sending there strongest team . It will be tough for east but let's not forget last weeks fiasco had nothing to do with the Leigh east players

Although I'll miss this game due to work commitments, only the third in three years. Good luck to both teams.
The Duke is one of the best secretaries in the game and I always look forward to and enjoy our visits to Skirlaugh, no matter how the game goes.
Whichever team goes down, they will be straight back. (unless the NCL decide otherwise)
See you season after next Duke.Unless we meet in the Challenge Cup

Hope rugby does the talking today and I predict a narrow win for the other team in Leigh :)

A close game in the end, Skirlaugh just getting the win in the dying minutes,

Leigh had a coach/assistant sent off for coming out of the technical area which seemed a little harsh, but his reaction didnt help
