The Rams ended 2015 with a comprehensive victory in the North Yorkshire Trophy.
Richmondshire arrived at the Avenue with a bare 15 men, but had come to play a full part in the game. Wharfedale took too long to settle down and get into their normal rhythm after a 2 week lay-off and it was the visitors who scored first, their only points, after a penalty infringement in the Wharfedale 22. This spurred Wharfedale into life and they began to score at regular intervals throughout.
At half time Richmondshire had several injured players so Wharfedale men Ben and Tom Rymer and Adam Stockdale all went to their aid. Wharfedale stuck to their game plan in the second half and ran out comfortable winners.
Wharfedale tries: Dan Benson3, Sam Lockwood2, Tom Murray, Adam Stockdale,Ed Walker,Matt Waring,Dave Tweed,Jonathan Davies all 1 each.
Conversions: J Davies 5 and Dan Benson 2.
