If Harrogate can keep there team together and play consistent rugby, I think Harrogate and knottingley will challenge for the top 2. Its good to see the level of rugby growing in Yorkshire 3 and long may it continue.


I agree with this statement, the level in this league is better than the big boys in other league indicate.
There are some really good players in this league and are a pleasure to watch,  the trouble is consistently of team play, get that and most teams in Y3 will do well in Y2.
 The Otley boys should be up there for me.. Just putting it out there

Yorkshire 4 / Re: Garforth

Great News.. I had some great years at Garforth which is now and was a club run by the lads/players with some old members still part of the comitee..They struggle due to having no youth section and the facilities are not ideal.

There are other local teams in stronger positions and ultimately lose players to them teams.

The people associated with Garforth have worked really hard behind the scenes to ensure the club doesn't fold and it would be a massive shame for that to happen,as it is when any club does.

Good luck to them this season.

I think there's one league lad who committed that's it.The league side comes and goes every year they have terrible commitment so to hope they'd help out is wishing..

Garforth had/have a few lads who travel a fair distance and I think they've all gone near enough hence them now struggling.They pick up no players up from the school anymore and those players they do attract come in infrequently...the 25 year reunion will hopefully galvanise something but again I think it's hoping on a prayer.

hi Jimmy
like you guys Brods were missing a few of last years regular first teamers in the forwards and backs. I am sure you guys will do well in Y2 and the you team will only get better as long as you can keep them all together. I hear the 10 left to go to Crocs
So many teams in Halifax it is hard to attract local players

Vandals were very strong up front and played a game that suited their team.
i wouldn't like to be an outside back up there, but what they are doing seems to be working for them
I can see them being a solid mid-table Y2 team next season
From what I am told they didn't pull out due to the result, more that they struggle to get players to travel across on an evening


Forwards have always been our strength, few backs missing though. 10, 12, wing all missing from last season, with gaps being filled by 2nd teamers and lads out of position against Brods. No doubt we were outclassed out wide but we'll stick at it and try and improve! Was good to see a lot of our young lads from the 2nd team step up and give it 100% against much better / more experienced opposition. Brods backs looked very slick at times. Would be slightly concerned about their pack if that was something near full strength though....

Re: the West Leeds game, as far as I know it's just down to availability, or lack of. Lots of lads work evenings or away from home, so it would be impossible to get together a squad for a mid week game, let alone an away game.
