Siddal coach Gareth Greenwood wants his side to “set some standards” for the season ahead when they host Skirlaugh at Chevinedge tomorrow.

Greenwood’s side have a won one, lost one record so far and will be looking for a repeat of their opening day win over Lock Lane when the Humberside outfit arrive in town.

“We need to set ourselves some standards for the rest of the year now and turn those goals and targets we have into a performance on the field,” said Greenwood.

“We were good against Lock Lane for 50 minutes, then eased off and it ended up looking like an average win.

“The other week at Leigh Miners we started well then lost our way.

“We need to come up with an 80 minute performance.

“Skirlaugh have lost three from three, but they’ve all been by one score or so, so they’ve been getting closer.

“The law of averages says they’ll get one over the line soon, I just hope it’s not tomorrow.”

Siddal will have Ross White available again, although Scott Caley is still suspended.

“We should have 20 or 21 to pick from, so it should be a decent side,” said Greenwood.

Siddal are hosting a Q and A session with Huddersfield Giants players and staff next Tuesday, March 25 (7.0).

Coach Paul Anderson, half back Danny Brough and former Siddal Players Luke Robinson, Scott Grix, Jake Connor and Kruise Leeming will be in attendance.

Entry will be £1 for children and £3 foradults.
