Wharfedale travelled to Huddersfield with only 11 men. Huddersfield had an abundance of players and duly lent 4 men to make up 2 full squads. Wharfedale went on the attack from the kick off and after five minutes of good interplay, took an early lead with a try from Pat O’ Brien, converted by Mark Tywang. Spurred on, Wharfedale carried on attacking the Huddersfield line and just came up short of a second score. After 25 minutes, Huddersfield had some good possession and found their speedy young winger out wide who scored a try, with the conversion levelling the score. Just before half time Huddersfield did a similar move which again found the winger to take the half time lead at 14-7.
The second half saw both sides playing good open rugby trying to find the next score. Wharfedale had a number of good strong runs only stopped by last ditch tracking. Huddersfield eventually got the next converted try with 10 minutes remaining. Wharfedale went on the offensive again trying to turn the game around, but Huddersfield scored a break away try with 2 minutes left to seal the game. A good sporting encounter by all who took part.
