Melton RFC’s frustrating season took another turn on Saturday when the First XV had to postpone their latest league match.

Gareth Collins’ side has been racked by a series of injuries, unavailability and departures this campaign as they struggle at the bottom of Midlands One East.

After a series of four heavy defeats, Melton faced the daunting trip to league leaders Kettering last weekend, but didn’t have enough props to fulfil the fixture.

Melton are without a win this season and have just three points after 15 games.

They return to home turf on Saturday when Leighton Buzzard visit Burton Road for a 2.15pm kick-off.

But their Bedfordshire side have had similar woes this season and have just one win - a comeback 36-24 victory against Melton in the reverse fixture.
