Melton RFC return to league action this weekend with a top-of-the-table clash in Northants.

Following a blank weekend in the Midlands One East league schedules, the First XV travel to second-placed Old Northamptonians.

Gareth Collins’ side leapfrogged Northampton Old Scouts into third last time out with a 29-7 win at Burton Road.

It will be the third fixture running pitting Melton against a top three side after they were beaten at unbeaten leaders Newbold in week five of the season.
