After last week’s narrow reverse to Barnard Castle 11th placed Whitby Maroons go to Seaton Carew on Saturday (12 Oct) in search of their first win this season.
Seaton lie 10th in the table after also losing four matches but only by then thinnest of margins, their points difference only -12.
Jack Braithwaite, James Gildroy, Shane Young, Matt Jones, Matt Russell, Guy Taylor and Connor Clennan are all unavailable and Anthoney Craig remains an injury doubt. Scott Armstrong, Barney Fountain, Luke Brown and all step up from the Quins while Mick Hare makes a season’s debut. Coach Darryl Grason said ‘We need to put last week’s disappointment behind us and move on.
“We have three tough games on the road, now two of them against top three sides and if our attitude is not right, we will get run over.”
