Seaham Rugby Club eager to get into action against South Tyneside College

Have your say

SEAHAM hope to get back on track on Saturday following the bitter disappointment of last week’s postponement.

They had been due to travel to Newton Aycliffe in Durham and Northumberland Division Three, but their opponents’ Moore Lane pitch was declared unplayable at the eleventh hour due to frost. A chronic shortage of home players did not help matters either.

This weekend, South Tyneside College visit the Leisure Centre and the Harbourmen will be hoping to put things right after losing 20-10 away earlier in the season.

Seaham will look to find the ruthless streak which evaded them against Seghill a fortnight ago, when their lively young backs were starved of good ball.

The hosts miss captain John Dixon and prop Gary Lynn but otherwise select from a strong squad, with Paul Scott and Andy Hogwood returning to the forwards. Behind the scrum, Dave Davison and Scott Pattison will aim to pick up where they left off last time.

South Tyneside College have been a bogey team for Seaham over the past half five or six seasons. However, if the hosts are ever going to inject some consistency into their game, these are the teams they must overcome.
