A week after the original fixture was postponed more than 24 hours before kick-off due to a frozen, snow-covered pitch, Old Grovians have named a 22-man squad to travel to Halifax on Saturday in SSE Yorkshire Division Four.

Ovenden Park has already been a profitable hunting ground this season as Grovians enjoyed an emphatic 61-12 win in the Yorkshire Silver Trophy and, after scoring 64 points against them in the opening league meeting, they'll be looking to complete a clean sweep as they continue to press their claims for promotion.

Old Grovians include dynamic flanker Brad Williams and experienced fly half Anthony Cadman for the first time in 2013.

Utility back Joel Bradley and wingers Ricky Hopkinson and Ben Magee also return to the squad.

Old Grovians (at Halifax): C Blackhall, M Worrall, C Cockshott, D Roberts, R Brown, J Baker, S Robinson, M Lister, B Williams, D Foster, T Whitehead, D Gullick, J Bradley, A Weaving, J Sowden, R Hopkinson, J Hinchliffe, B Brown, A Griffin, R Sharrocks, A Cadman, B Magee.
