Wharfedale travelled to Baildon with the luxury of a full side for the first time this year. Playing down the slope in the first half, Wharfedale matched everything Baildon had to offer. The game was a stop start affair with each side scoring alternatively.
At half time with the score at 24-21 in Baildon’s favour. Wharfedale knew they had a job to do playing uphill into the wind and with Baildon able to bring on fresh legs from their sizeable bench. But Wharfedale took the game to Baildon and spent much of the half in Baildon’s 22, but just unable to get to the try line, and Baildon scoring with breakouts from Wharfedale’s mistakes.
