Melton RFC have been used to success in recent times with two championships and two county cups in the last three seasons EMN-180603-133025002

Snow and ice postponed all of the league’s fixtures, with Melton due to travel to second-bottom Huntingdon. The match has been re-arranged for Saturday, March 17,

Melton have lost their last seven matches and are without a win in 2018 after a string of injuries and a run of fixtures against the division’s top sides.

They currently sit 10th, seven points above Huntingdon ahead of their tough home match with promotion-chasing Kettering om Saturday (ko 3pm).

Title contenders Syston, meanwhile, face a tough trip to Nottingham to take on Paviors.

Their postponed home match with Oundle has also been moved to March 17.
