NORTHWICH Rugby Club resume their league fixtures today.

This follows an extended break due to matches being postponed because of wintry conditions and then the festive season.

They welcome Rossendale Rugby Club to Moss Farm.

Blacks have a full-strength squad from which to select in an attempt to extend their winning sequence and hopefully avenge the reversal they suffered at the hands of third place Rossendale.

The Lancashire Club beat Northwich by nine points in September but Blacks feel they are now considerably stronger than when they last met so an entertaining, close encounter is envisaged.

Northwich second XV travel to South Manchester to play Burnage thirds with the aim of maintaining their top spot, while Northwich thirds host Birkenhead Park thirds at Moss Farm.

All matches kick-off at 2.15 pm.
