The final score didn’t reflect the effort and hard work both sides put in to get this game on. Wharfedale were short of a front row, so Brods kindly loaned a man and continued to replace and rotate him as the game went on, which kept the scrummage competitive. Brods had the heavier pack and were intent on trying to make this advantage have an effect, but Wharfedale had a youthful speedy back line and didn’t waste any time in exploiting the full width of the pitch at every opportunity. Wharfedale scored steadily throughout the game, but Brods never gave up and their forward pressure gained them their scoring opportunities.
Wharfedale scorers: – Tries – P O’Brian 3, M Tindall 3, M Tywang 2, J Chappell, C Brown, D Tweed. Conversions – M Tindall 8.
