Spring Hill club lost at Welwyn last Saturday

Hackney find themselves with a lengthy break between matches in London Two North West, with no game scheduled until November 17.

With the league having 11 teams in it this season, the Spring Hill club have a blank fixture this Saturday.

The following weekend has been reserved for cup clashes, meaning Hackney are without a league game until November 17 when they host Hemel Hempstead.

The Spring Hill club go into their mid-season mini-break off the back of a 43-21 defeat away to Welwyn.

Hackney saw Ben Sudell, Dave Lewis and Ultan Murphy all cross for tries in the loss, with the latter converting all three scores.

Unable to finish within seven points of Welwyn or score four tries, the Spring Hill club did not take a single point from the game.

Hackney will hope to use the time until their next game wisely was they look to get back to winning ways.
