RIPLEY Rhinos RFC never had much hope that Mill Hill’s pitch would be playable and an early inspection on Friday saw the Pennant League group four home game against East Retford seconds called off.
Ripley firsts hope the thaw continues and the water drains for this Saturday.
The first XV travel over to Southwell 3rds for a Pennant league game and the seconds take on a Select XV at Mill Hill put together by long-serving club secretary Steve Cresswell in honour of his 50th birthday.
All former players are welcome - please contact 07816 779018 if you want to play.
Rhinos seconds’ scheduled friendly game at Tupton seconds last Saturday also fell victim to the combination of snow and freezing temperatures.
