Mike Rayer's boys get the best possible opportunity to put a poor pre-seaon behind them with a trip to financially challenged Carnegie this Sunday.

The Tykes have had to literally throw a side together during the summer after their financial woes and are everyone's favourites for relegation.

Irrespective we have to improve our form and the Blues side shows a number of changes as we look to get that winning start.

Tappers returns to the wing, Fraser Strachan starts at inside centre and Lewis Robling moves to fly half.

Up front Oli Curry and Joe Atkinson are on the flanks.​

Blues: 15. Rich Lane​, 14. Pat Tapley​, 13. Matt Worley​, 12. Fraser Strachan​, 11. Ryan Hutler​, 10. Lewis Robling, 9. Grayson Hart​ ,​ 1. Sean McCarthy (capt)​ 2. Robbie Smith​ 3. Henry Paul​ 4. Jordan Onojaife​ 5. Will Carrick Smith​ 6. Oli Curry​ 7. Joe Atkinson​ 8. Huw Worthington​

Reps: Andrew Boye​,  Joe Wrafter​, Karl Garside​, Ed Taylor, Josh Buggea​, Alex Day​, Oskar Hirskyj-Douglas​, Ed Coulson

Iron Blue

I believe Ealing will win the league this year so even with my blue tinted sunglasses on I cannot see us getting anything from that game.

Iron Blue I must comment on your recent posting......I cannot locate anyone offering odds on winning the league but would suspect that there are those on here who will soon rectify that discrepancy.......

Another omission I note is the lack of offers on the Leeds v Bedford game despite there being offers on all the other thinks the bookies have it all but over and done with....

Expected us to win yesterday but you never know with Leeds, all the times that I have been there this was the first time I have seen us win.

After a shaky start I thought the boys put in a solid performance the scrum was good as was the line out and we won a lot of theirs. A good win that will boost confidence going into some tough games this month. Liked the look of the new scrum half don't know how long we have him for.

Iron Blue are you still so certain of Ealing winning the League........some interesting results over the weekend should make it difficult to forecast who tops the league.......personally I am not so certain on Newcastle going back up......interesting times....

we need approx 33 points to stay up.

our lowest place in decades was 8th.

I think actually we're probably the most successful championship side never to be promoted?

Cause for optimism, every season.

Compo, yes I still think Ealing will win it although that was a shock result as was LS against Newcastle unlucky not to win by all accounts.
