A whole-hearted effort last Saturday gleaned only one try and a few bruises. It is safari time for Wharfedale as the next two weeks we are against Tigers. First up this week is Sheffield Tigers away at Dore Moor and then Sedgley Park at home.
The Dale is taking two teams down to South Yorkshire as the Foresters are playing Sheffield Tiger`s 2nds in a Yorkshire Merit League – Premiership fixture.
Both Dale teams have had some great matches against Sheffield over the years and a trip to Dore Moor is always eagerly anticipated.
Sheffield Tigers had a similar start to Dale last week when they lost to Stourbridge away. They are, like Wharfedale, an attacking side with plenty of flair, so we should have a much more open game than we witnessed last week at Clifton Park! Fixtures between the two 1st teams over the last few seasons have gone to the away side with Tigers winning at the Avenue and Dale edging the games at Dore Moor.
Hopefully we can create a good atmosphere and cheer the lads to victory.
The address for the travelling faithful is Sheffield Tigers RUFC, Dore Moor, Hathersage Road, Sheffield. S17 3AB
