TRAFFORD MV return to ADM League action on Saturday hoping their unexpected break will see them refreshed when they take on Liverpool Collegiate.

The team were disappointed to lose 31-13 at home to Ormskirk last time out and were denied the chance to bounce back last weekend when their ADM League Cup match at Aldwinians was postponed late in the day.

Now they will look to take out their frustrations on a Collegiate side who have had a poor start to the season and are yet to pick up a win, although they have collected losing bonus points as a result of putting in competitive battles. MV must see this fixture as an opportunity to kick-start their own season and the squad know they need to become a competitive outfit capable of putting opposition to the sword when they can and be able to put in gritty performances when the games are tough and the opposition stronger.

Bosses know the emphasis has got to be on individuals taking ownership of their roles as part of the team display and ensuring their performances contribute to the full team effort.

MV's second XV are at home in a League and Cup double header with Aspull as the opposition and the winner taking league points and progression through to the next round of the Halbro Cup.

With England Rugby's progression into the Rugby World Cup semi-finals with their impressive 40-16 win against Australia to meet the All Blacks, Trafford MV are inviting all local rugby players who may have drifted out of the game to be encouraged to ''Get Your Boots On'' and get back into the sport.

The club offers rugby to all ages from three years of age playing mini rugby all the way through to vets rugby – with a floodlit game against Eccles set for Friday, November 1.

There is also walking rugby for the over-50s which is fun and free.
