The Combined Services and BARLA will clash at both U21 and U23 level at Eccles ARLFC on Friday 12th November.
The double header, which was originally going to be staged at Leigh Miners Rangers ARLFC, sees the U23 opponents clash in their annual fixture, whilst the U21s encounter is introduced for the first time.
The BARLA U23s include Siddal scrum half Liam Walsh. Walsh was National Conference League Player of the year in the 2002/03 season and if selected, is sure to prove a handful for the ombined Services defence.
The Combined Services have named the same U23s quad that was used in he recent game against the Wales President XIII, and will be naming a 30-man U21 squad next week.
