Newark Rugby Club hoping games will be played at home following flooding on their pitches in Nottinghamshire

The aftermath of Storm Babet is still having some effect on sports in the area.

Ollerton 1st's rugby game against Bakewell Mannerians was postponed due to the away team not being safely able to get to Ollerton.

Ollerton 2nds played host to top-of-the-league Belper 2nds and won 32 - 24 in a good game.
