Match Preview


Hornets wait on quartet

Rochdale Hornets player Ruairi McGoff is away with Canada on international duty, while Wayne English, Gareth Langley, Dave Hull and Chris Hough all face fitness tests.

Hornets coach Ian Talbot said: "We've got quite a few guys to look at, but hopefully two or three of them will be available."

Talbot has set his sights on securing a win before the start of the Kingstone Press Championship 1 play-offs.

He said: "We were starting to build a little bit, but the Oldham game was a backward step for us in terms of our performance. We didn't do ourselves justice."

He added: "The All Golds have got better as the year's gone on and I'm sure they're a bit disappointed the season's coming to an end.

"They're picking up a bit of form and you know what to expect from any Brad Hepi team: they'll come out firing and be physical from the start."

Gloucestershire All Golds are aiming to secure their third win of a promising debut campaign that has seen them take points from seven of their 15 league fixtures so far.
