JIM PERRETT STARTS AT FULLBACK AGAINST KEIGHLEY IN SATURDAY’S OPENER

For Saturday afternoon’s game with Keighley Jim Perrett starts at fullback and Phil Stewart stands in for Jordi Wakeham at scrum-half. In the forwards Sam Dawson who scored a hat-trick of tries on debut against Hemel Hemstead starts at hooker, Matty Oxtoby teams up with Phil Watson in the second row and with the departure of Isaac Faamau at the end of last season, Ben Martin is at No8, Ali Sutton starts at blindside and Drew Govier is at seven. Aaron Wilson, Joe Lenton and Michael Whitton are on the bench. Harry Domett is nursing a hamstring injury sustained against Hemel Hemstead whilst Rob Smith is still recovering from injury.

Coach Simon Smith’s charges have played two pre-season games, losing 17-19 at Driffield before beating visitors Hemel Hemstead 43-7 here at Silver Royd two weeks ago. However, being the first game of the season we don’t know what to expect from Keighley; suffice to say games between the clubs are often close-fought. Last season the west Yorkshiremen edged the game 15-5 on their patch whilst Scarborough managed a 27-15 win in the reciprocal fixed following a lively tussle at Silver Royd.
