Dewsbury will host a roller derby men’s British Championships match for the first time on Sunday.

Sheffield’s The Inhuman League go into the game against the Crash Test Brummies at the top of their division on points difference.

Another win will keep the Sheffield team in first place until at least the next round of games in April.

The Brummies lost their first game against New Wheeled Order by 153-83 points but The Inhuman League’s captain expects a tough game.

Mark Wride said: “We go into the second round with confidence and a win behind us but we know this is a whole other team we are facing.

“We are really looking forward to showing Dewsbury and the Yorkshire roller derby community as a whole just how competitive and challenging men’s roller derby is.”

The other game sees the Quads of War play Nottingham’s Super Smash Brollers.

Doors at Dewsbury Sports Centre open at 4pm and tickets cost £6 or two for £10, available through
