Durham Senior Men announce squad for final pool fixture against Leicestershire Rugby
Durham County Senior Men host Leicestershire Men in the final fixture of the pool stages in the Bill Beaumont Championship, this Saturday.
Durham Men will welcome the side to Billingham RUFC to see who will progress to the final at Twickenham Stadium.
Last week saw the hosts triumphant over Staffordshire at Durham City in a 99-7 display of attacking rugby.
Gus Miller, Durham County Men’s Coach commented on the game saying: “Staffordshire never gave up, but with lots of tries it was a great game for spectators to watch.
“It was a great second game for us to gather momentum heading into the last game.”
Durham currently sit top of the Division Two, Pool One table in the Bill Beaumont Championship with only one game and 67 points scored between them.
Miller added: “We are looking forward to our next challenge against Leicestershire. Last year they beat us at their place and Saturday will be our chance to reciprocate the favour to them.
“As coaching staff we could not be more delighted with the players’ attitude and commitment to the team, this year.”
