Old Brodleians welcome Doncaster Phoenix in Yorkshire One tomorrow for the first league fixture between the two clubs.

Brods, beaten 18-12 at North Ribblesdale last weekend, have injury doubts over Rob Jennings and Luke Scrimshaw, who were both being assessed this week.

Aaron Fowler is already out of the running with a knee injury and Tongan prop Loma Kivalu has not yet received his work visa and so his arrival will be delayed, probably for a further week.

So far this season, Doncaster have travelled to Ilkley in the league and lost 13-9 as well as missing out to Heath in the first round of the Yorkshire Shield, going down 11-10 at West Vale.

They got off the mark against Selby last weekend, edging home 13-12 thanks to a single try and eight points from the boot of fly half Dan Storey.
