Match Preview


Peacock back for Scorpions

Haydn Peacock returns to the South Wales Scorpions' squad as they search for a second win in this year's Kingstone Press Championship 1.

South Wales coach Dave Clark said: "This is one of those games where we have to be at our best to get the result we want.

"We've won all of our away matches and lost our home games this year, but as this is our last home game for seven weeks we want to change that."

Ben Davies could play for the Scorpions after signing a one-month loan deal from Widnes Vikings.

Rochdale Hornets are likely to travel without Dave Sutton, who injured his shoulder while scoring against Bradford Bulls last week.

Hornets coach Ian Talbot said: "I was very pleased with our effort and enthusiasm against the Bulls. We were always on a hiding to nothing, but we stuck to our principles and kept trying to play."

On South Wales, Talbot added: "They're definitely a dangerous team. Their two half-backs have been playing well and are very influential.

"We're looking after ourselves by travelling down on Saturday, so hopefully the journey won't make too much of an impact.

"The club that manages the travelling and the performances afterwards will be the one that does well this year, because there is a lot of travelling in Kingstone Press Championship One."
