Sunderland to host the Vikings

Have your say

SUNDERLAND host North East Premier leaders Jarrow Vikings at South Tyneside College RFC’s Grosvenor Roadground tomorrow (2.30pm).

The Wearsiders hope to repeat last season’s home derby success, but Vikings boast a 100 per cent record, so Sunderland face a daunting challenge.

Former Sunderland players Craig Jones and David Stephenson now wear the yellow and black of Jarrow, giving the home team an extra incentive to get back on track after last week’s loss at Peterlee Pumas and keep their hopes of a top-two finish alive. All players are to meet at South Tyneside College at 1pm.
