There is no question on which is the match of the day in amateur rugby league circles this weekend.

The top two sides in the National Conference Premier Division meet in West Cumbria, in what promises to be an absolute thriller.

Leaders West Hull have only dropped one point so far, and that was their home draw with Wath Brow earlier in the season.

Now it’s Hornets' turn to have ground advantage and currently lying second in the table they know nothing else but a win will keep them in the hunt for the title.

West Hull have a two-point lead and a game in hand, so if the Humbersiders win at Red Beck tomorrow they will be red hot favourites to go on and finish top of the pile.

Last Saturday West Hull were taken to the wire when they beat Thatto Heath 16-12, needing at last minute try to secure both points.

Wath Brow, by comparison, were never seriously troubled at struggling Leigh Miners Rangers and although limited to eight second-half points were cosy 22-0 winners.

If Ian Rooney’s men can win tomorrow they will definitely go top, although just level on points, as they have a superior points differential.

The Hornets have scored more points (336 to 290) and conceded only seven more (139 to 132).

But West Hull do have that game in hand to turn down, which is why the Brow won’t contemplate defeat tomorrow.

It’s developed into a bit of a two-horse race as Wath Brow are five points clear of three clubs who are headed by Egremont on points differential.

Egremont have got their season back on track after their mid-season blip and were comfortable winners over Rochdale Mayfield (32-6) last week.

It will be a bit tougher for them tomorrow when they travel to Thatto Heath, who are down in sixth but have a game in hand of Rangers with a game in hand.

Kells gave themselves a lifeline with a 24-20 home win over Thornhill Trojans to leapfrog the Dewsbury side.

The Cumbrian had lost 18-6 in the away fixture earlier in the season so needed this win to move off the bottom of the table.

Tomorrow Kells are on the road to the reigning champions Hunslet Club Parkside who have already lost three games after going through last season unbeaten.

The first of those famously came in the opening game of the new campaign – beaten 6-0 at Kells.

It’s a fact which won’t have gone un-noticed by Hunslet and the west Cumbrians can surely expect a determined response from their hosts.

Kells are just a point behind the two teams immediately above them – Rochdale Mayfield and Leigh Miners Rangers, while they lead bottom side Thornhill Trojans on points differential.

But things might alter tomorrow as the Trojans entertain Mayfield. Rangers travel to Lock Lane.

There was a game in the Iggesund Cumberland League on Tuesday in which Seaton Rangers beat Kells A 14-6.

There was only one try scored in the first-half as

Seaton enjoyed a 4-0 lead at the break.

In they end they scored three tries to their visitors one to take the points.

Ethan Mitchell (2) and Kieran Mewse scored the Seaton tries, one of them converted by Mewes.

Prop forward Joe Johnston scored the Kells’ try which was converted by full-back Cameron Taylor.

Seaton’s second-row forward Liam Wood was their man of the match while loose-forward Connor Hetherington took the nomination for Kells.

In a reduced League programme this weekend Seaton are back in action tonight with a trip to Hensingham A while tomorrow their second team entertain Glasson Rangers.
