Match Preview – Huddersfield v Wharfedale

February 20th, 2019 Comments off

Last weekend’s victory over a plucky and resilient South Leicester side, a part of a Whrfedale greenwash, saw the Greens make it four wins on the bounce and a league points total of 58 takes us above what we achieved in the entirety of last season, and we still have nine matches to complete in the current campaign. The first of those sees the Wharfedale bandwagon trucking on down to Huddersfield to undertake the fixture due to have been played prior to Christmas.

While Dales winning run is impressive, Field are on an 8 game unbeaten spree with a solitary draw at Fylde spoiling their 100% record. Their last defeat was at Lockwood Park on 1st December 2018 when Chester had a narrow win, so the enormity of the task facing the Greens is plain to see.

Huddersfield are currently lying third in the table with 78 points from the 21 games played. Fifteen wins and that draw at Fylde alongside just the 5 defeats, see them going into the business end of the season with genuine aspirations of making the step up to National 1 rugby next term. An important factor could be that they have a game in hand on all the clubs around them.

Our two clubs have met on 7 previous occasions in league rugby, with Wharfedale very much holding the upper hand with 5 wins to 2. One of those victories for Field was at Lockwood Park last season when they put Dale to the sword in atrocious conditions to run out worthy winners by 43 points to 27.

Kick off on Saturday is at 3.00pm and the ground can be found on Brewery Drive, Huddersfield with a postcode of HD4 6EN.

The team selection will follow later in the week.
