And so, another season closes; this Saturday though there is a big clash as the esteemed Foresters has a Yorkshire Merit League Cup Final match against Sheffield down at Pontefract RUFC. Your support in West Yorkshire would be welcome, and for those travelling to Pontefract, the quickest way is down the A1, turn off at Darrington, turn right under the bridge towards Carleton for approximately 1mile, the ground is sign posted on the left. Moor Lane, Carleton, Pontefract WF8 3RX

The 1st XV finish off the year with the return clash against Rotherham Titans, completing a trio of Yorkshire derbies in successive weeks.

It will be something of an emotional day at the Avenue as Rotherham Old Boys, John Feeley and John Skurr, are in charge for the last time as coaches at the Avenue. John Feeley has been a popular coach at the Avenue going back some years to when he came for his first stint as Head Coach back in National 1 days. Jonathan has been associated with Dale since 2012.

When Jonathan came back to Dale in 2018 as head coach he was assisted by forwards’ coach Jon Skurr.

The latter has not only been involved with coaching Yorkshire alongside Feeley, but was also a union team-mate of his at Rotherham and Wakefield and at Bradford Bulls.

There will be further details about changes at the Avenue in the near future.

Whichever team you go and support, get behind the Greens! They are both involved in tough matches, against good opposition, and will appreciate your presence on this last league weekend.

Team to follow.
