Match Preview


Tyrer sidelined for Hornets

Chris Tyrer (groin) is Rochdale's only absentee as the Hornets prepare to host South Wales Scorpions in Sunday's Kingstone Press Championship 1 fixture.

Hornets coach Ian Talbot said: "Other than Chris, we should be a pretty similar 17 to last week.

"You'd imagine South Wales will be wanting to right a few wrongs, but we've changed the focus this year on to what we're doing, rather than worrying too much about the opposition.

"We just need to keep improving week on week. If we keep doing that, we'll end up where we deserve to be."

Connor Farrer and Andy Powell could both feature for South Wales, but David James (back) is unavailable for selection.

South Wales coach Dave Clark said: "The players know what the need to do.

"We had a disappointing July and we know that we should be higher in the table. We have the quality of players in the side.

"We made too many mistakes against Gateshead last week. If we can put that right against Rochdale then we'll be in with a chance of taking all three points."
