Wharfedale arrived at Skipton with only 14 men so Skipton sportingly supplied a man. A typical hard fought local derby match was played at breakneck speed at times. Both sides were equally matched. Skipton’s bigger pack tried to bully their way through the Wharfedale defence, whilst Wharfedale’s backs made telling breaks and produced good scoring opportunities. The game was in the balance at halftime but Wharfedale just had the edge in the second half and pulled away for the decisive points to seal the game.
Wharfedale scorers: – Rory McNab 1 try, 2 conversions, Jacob Taylor 2 tries and 1 try each for Luke Craven and Ed Walker.
