Leek rugby players ready to make a return to the Twickenham trail

LEEK RUFC 1st XV take a break from league action to venture back onto the Twickenham trail this Saturday.

They travel to the Bob Covard Memorial Ground, Coventry, where they will face Barkers Butts in the third round of the Midland Intermediate Cup.

A Leek win would step up their bid to qualify for the national competition and a second visit in recent times to the famous home of England rugby.

Leek were beaten finalists at the Twickenham stadium four years ago as Midland Cup winners.

The team bounced back from successive defeats in Midlands Two West (North) to beat Newcastle 16-3 last weekend.

Barkers Butts currently hold a mid-table position in Midlands Two West (North).
