PLACES IN the team for next week’s National Conference Trophy semi-final against Hunslet Club Parkside will be up for grabs when third-placed Milford Marlins visit lowly Featherstone Lions in Division One tomorrow.

Prop John Elkington (groin) and captain James Barker (neck) are ruled out, but hooker Josh Parle and centre Dave Watmough are both back in contention.

Second-placed Parkside will be without Danny Rowse (broken wrist), Danny Harrison (shoulder) and Craig McShane (unavailable) for tomorrow’s visit of Blackbrook.

Jamie Fields (foot) and Kieran Murphy (thigh) are both in doubt, so Jay Cunningham, Dean Bowles and Luke Medley have been called into the squad.

Third-bottom Hunslet Warriors are in desperate need of two points from their trip to Ince Rose Bridge, who are three places and three points better off. Luke Day, Ben Gale, Micky Lyons and Johnny Dawson will make a welcome return to the pack, but Conner Jordan is in doubt due to a wrist injury.

East Leeds will be boosted by the return of Tom Sheldrake, Lee Fisher. Johnny Carter and Shane Plunkett when they play host to Crosfields in Division Two tomorrow, but Tom Holmes (unavailable) and James Forsell (shoulder) drop out.

Oulton Raiders visit Thornhill Trojans. Stanningley travel to Stanley Rangers in Division Three.
