Our main sponsors confirm their long-term committment

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.

Global Law Trials 2017

July 28th, 2017 Comments off
World Rugby (formerly the International Rugby Board) has adopted a number of law trials which will come into force in northern hemisphere rugby from 1 August 2017 and will last for an initial period of one year. Some of these trials are already in force in the southern hemisphere and, indeed, were applied during the British & Irish Lions tour. However, some of the trials – see particularly the changes to the ruck designed to counter the Italy “only a tackle” tactic which enlivened the England-Italy 6 Nations match – are more recent and will not apply in the southern hemisphere until 1 January 2018. They will all apply to the new season in England, starting with our pre-season friendly against Kirkby Lonsdale on 12 August.

Full information, together with explanatory videos, is available at the World Rugby website www.laws.worldrugby.org/?domain=20&lamguage=EN under the heading Global Law Trials 2017 but, by way of a taster, they are summarised here
