Yorkshire Carnegie help spread the Rugby Union word across the county Yorkshire Carnegie have today confirmed the venues for their three On the Road British & Irish Cup games on Yorkshire Day with two new venues added to the list of grounds which have hosted the club in recent years.
For the past three seasons, Yorkshire Carnegie have taken ‘home’ games on the road around the county as part of Chairman Sir Ian McGeechan’s vision to promote Rugby Union throughout Yorkshire. Having previously played at York, Otley and Wharfedale, for the 2014-15 British & Irish Cup games, the club will travel further into West Yorkshire for the first time and head to the Yorkshire coast.
The first on the road game sees a Yorkshire derby at Scarborough on Friday 10th October, kick off 8pm, against Rotherham Titans. Later that month, Carnegie will take on Welsh opposition, which is yet to be decided, as they return to Hull Ionians for a third consecutive season, on Saturday 25th October, kick off 2.30pm. Finally, Yorkshire Carnegie will take on Ulster Ravens at Huddersfield YMCA on Sunday 7th December at 2.30pm in the first competitive meeting between the two sides.
Commenting on the announcement Yorkshire Carnegie Chairman Sir Ian McGeechan said, “I am delighted to be welcoming Scarborough and Huddersfield YMCA into our circuit of venues who have hosted us for the On the Road games. It is vital for us to spread the word about Yorkshire Carnegie and our ambitions for Rugby Union in the county to as many people as possible and these games certainly allow this. We spoke to a number of clubs and venues and we were grateful for the time and effort each club made to host the three games. We were extremely impressed by, not just the set ups at Scarborough and Huddersfield YMCA, but also their enthusiasm to make the games big occasions for them as a club.”
The game will kick off at 2.30pm on the 7th December 2014 under floodlights.
