Hull Ionians 31-10 Wharfedale

August 19th, 2017 Comments off
With a brisk breeze blowing from across the Humber it was Wharfedale who edged the first half. With greater resources Ionians turned out two separate XVs and as Dale tired the home team had the better of the second half.

As with the game against Kirkby Lonsdale there were a lot of pluses for Dale and Head Coach, James Doherty, was pleased with the work rate and skill levels shown by the Men in Green.

One of the major positives was the scrum. Only as the second half wore on did Hull get on the front foot. In the first 40 minutes they were in retreat as Dale proved to have superior technique despite looking the lighter unit.

Ionians rarely mounted a concerted attack in the first half and it was only a brief moment of poor tackling from the visitors that allowed them to cross Dale’s line.

The rest of the first half was dominated by Dale and two tries from Harry Dunne and Josh Burridge were scant reward for their efforts.

Hull came out with a new set of players and fresh instructions and scored four tries to win by a clear 21 points.

The full report will follow shortly.

August 9th, 2017 Comments off

We are only weeks away from the start of the new season and eager anticipation is starting to build as we can’t wait to see ‘Woody’ lead out the men in green.

Off the field we are delighted to announce that our four main sponsors have enthusiastically re-affirmed their commitment to the club by increasing their continued financial backing.

As a Club we are very fortunate to not only have such generous corporate supporters but they also happen to be group of diehard fans. So once again many thanks to Oldfields Electrical, In-site Property, Healthcare House and Brook Taverner for providing the financial backbone for community rugby at Wharfedale.

Looking forward to seeing Andrew, Matthew, Richard, Roo, Tim and Andrew cheering from the touchline again this season.
