Wharfedale travelled to Halifax with just 13 men. Halifax duly lent Wharfedale one man for the first half and a second one in the second half. The first half was an evenly matched contest and despite being a man down, Wharfedale had the lion’s share of possession and at the half time whistle were leading 24 -21. As the second half wore on, despite now having the full 15, the Vandals took advantage of their sloping pitch and began to build up to a final score line which did not reflect this hard fought battle.
