NCL’s Minor Premiership up for grabs on Saturday…

The huge prize of the Kingstone Press National Conference League’s Minor Premiership will be resolved at the weekend.

Leaders West Hull will top the final table if they win their final league game at Siddal, regardless of results elsewhere.

Wath Brow Hornets will leapfrog Wests if Siddal beat the Green & Golds, and if Hornets see off Cumbrian neighbours Kells.

Reigning champions (and last year’s Minor Premiers) Hunslet Club Parkside will, meanwhile, retain their crown if they prevail at Rochdale Mayfield – and if both West Hull and Wath Brow are defeated on Saturday.

And fourth-placed Thatto Heath Crusaders could close in pole position if they win at Underbank and all three of Wests, Hornets and Parkside slip up.

To add to the intrigue Underbank and Siddal, together with Egremont Rangers, are vying for the bottom two spots in the Top-Six championship play-offs.
