West Cumbrian rivals to go head-to-head

The West Cumbrian 'Old Firm' are to go head-to-head this weekend. Workington Town will play rivals Whitehaven in Rugby League's Championship One on Sunday. The teams have been in good form this season, and are both on course for promotion.

Dave Bowden, Chairman of Working Town RLFC, said that fans can expect a "real cracker of a game." Town, who are second in the table, have beaten their rivals twice this year already.

But Don Gailer, Head Coach at Whitehaven RLFC, said that his team, who are fourth in the table, will be staying "focused on the end goal."
