Pre-season: Old Bedians face Newton-le-Willows

By James Hennigan

Pre-season friendly takes place Saturday 18th August

Old Bedians take on Newton Le Willows in a pre-season friendly this weekend.

The fixture between Old Bedians RUFC & Newton-le-Willows RUFC takes place on Saturday 18th August at 1pm at Burnage rugby club on the 4G pitch.

Both clubs will be selecting teams from their first team squads, providing coaching staff with the ideal opportunity to perfect lineup combinations, playing styles and the set pieces practiced over the summer.

The two teams last met in January 2017 when Bedians took the spoils in a 37-5 away victory. The Merseyside club play an uncompromising style of rugby and Bedians defence will have to be on top form to break them down.

It will be a good early test for the teams who are both in the RFU Lancashire/Cheshire Division 3 this year , they meet again in the league on Saturday 29th September 2018.
Saturday also marks Ben Rogerson's first opportunity to officially captain the team having been voted in as club captain for the 2018/19 season.
