They will be looking for their third win of the North One campaign, at Liverpool St Helens.

The Merseyside side traces its origins to 1857 when Liverpool Football Club was formed.

Liverpool St Helens were runaway winners of North Two West last season, but this season has seen them in indifferent form, gaining just one win from four attempts.

Tigers go over the Pennines buoyed by their 27-21 win over Altrincham Kersal.

Meanwhile, in Yorkshire One, Sheffield will be aiming for an away win at bottom club Keighley, who have yet to win.

In the same position, in Yorkshire Two, are Dinnington. The club themselves admit they have had a "disastrous start to the season".

Saturday sees the team travel to third-placed Ripon, who won at Goole last weekend. Wheatley Hills travel to Leeds.

Doncaster rugby union fans should get a special kick out of the Yorkshire Three clash between Doncaster Phoenix and Thornesians.

In the same division, Barnsley hope to continue their promising start with a win at second-pace Hullensians.

Wath on Dearne are at York Railway Institute.

In Yorkshire Four, Stocksbridge who lost 26-0 last Saturday, could be easy prey for the visiting Old Modernians, from Leeds.

Sheffield Oaks could go joint top if they beat leaders Halifax Vandals in Yorkshire Five A.
