Carlisle are hoping that this twice postponed match (because of Intermediate Cup committments by Driffield), will go ahead on Saturday.

Without a game since 13th December, the lads are desperate to get their season back on track.  Although some changes have been enforced due to unavailability.

Full back, Stephane Helies, will relish the chance to impress his former team mates, whilst Paddy McDonnell comes in on the wing for his first start of the season (broken eye lash depending!!).  Chris Harris and Ross Olney are centre partners with Dan Holmes anxious to get in his full first team debut on the other wing.

Stephane Helies - plays against his old team mates.

Aidan Day partners Mark Barron at lock with Bobby Charters, coming back in at wing forward.

Benching will be Mark Allan (forwards), Liam Nicholls (backs) with Nigel Arismandez as utility cover.

The coach leaves Warwick Road at 9.15 am and supporters will be welcome.

The Crusaders travel to Darlington Mowden Park in the Candy League.
