Chris Louis and Ritchie Hawkins are hoping their hard work in the winter will pay dividends as the Ipswich Witches gun for Championship glory in 2017.

At the Witches press day on Monday, the two were happy to chat about their hopes for the season ahead.

For too many years now the team have failed to lift a trophy and although the Championship looks a tough league, hopes are high this could be the Witches year.

The Suffolk side begin their Championship chase this Saturday night at Foxhall Stadium when they entertain Sheffield Tigers.

Both teams are being tipped as favourites for at least a play-off place this season, where the winners of the Championship will ride the bottom club in the Premiership for the right to ride in the Premiership in 2018.
