A big weekend of cup action beckons for Melton RFC on Saturday as they face two crunch semi-finals.
The First XV travel to Birmingham to take on Woodrush in the Midlands Senior Vase. Woodrush are third in Midlands 3 West (South) following a postponement on Saturday, but, like Melton, are challenging for the title.
The winners will travel to Vipers for the Midlands final on March 14 or 15.
Melton’s most experienced players, meanwhile, have a county final in sight as they host Hinckley in a re-arranged County Vets Cup tie (ko 2pm).
