Preview: Loughborough Riders vs Leicester Warriors

Coming off the back on a win over the Charnwood Riders, Loughborough Riders take on Leicester Warriors in their final game of the L Lynch Trophy Loughborough group stage at 3pm on Saturday at Loughborough University.

With both teams having one win and one loss on the record, these local sides will be looking to secure their second win to complete the group stage on a high note. After witnessing the shooting prowess of Joe Bielak last weekend, Loughborough will be looking for a repeat performance to start strong and stay ahead of a competitive Leicester Warriors side. 

Loughborough Riders Head Coach Mark Jarram is looking forward to another home game and the continued growth from his side:

“Always a tricky opponent. Like to make the games scrappy, which we must be ready for. We will again be tested with a different style of play and must be locked in for full 40 minutes. Again, great preparation for the regular season.”
