Chester trip for 1st XV

Date: 23 February 2023

Hoppers make the trip south to Chester this weekend in National 2 North league action. The reverse fixture back in October saw Chester win 13-29 at Lightfoot Green.

The Preston men head there on the back of a superb 28-25 win last time out against Otley who were on a 10 game winning streak prior to the game. Chester come into the game having beaten Tynedale last week thanks to a last minute penalty from Liam Reeve. The Cheshire side currently sit 5th in the table having accumulated double the amount of points that Hoppers have. Of their 11 wins so far, 7 of them have been by a score or less.

Hoppers will be in search of a first away win of the season with just 1 draw recorded so far earlier in the season at Blaydon.
