YMCA could be without as many as seven first-team regulars tomorrow as they chase victory on the East coast with the visit to Bridlington (2.15).
Wingers Chris Cowling and Dave Holmes are definitely out, the former working while the second is best man (again) at a wedding in Barbados, while prop Brad Dobson is skiing with a half-term school party.
Doubts hang over Luke Hannan (shoulder), Mava Iosefa (knee), Neil Walker (neck) and David Guegue (ear).
Coach Carl Thewlis was a former coach at Bridlington for a season and a half, but has yet to beat them since taking over at the YM.
"With so many key players out, I'll be looking to my most senior players like McSwiney, Watson, Bracken and Pearson to bring their experience to bear."
