MATCH REPORT: HRUFC vs’ Moortown Colts: Nobody told me that the planets were aligned, it was either that or the return of coach Potter that got our lads to start on the front foot. What joy to see them take the game to Moortown from the off. 9 minutes in and Moortown hadn’t touched the ball as Rufus Helm charged in to give us a 5-0 lead. A change around in our back line found Harry Fuller on the wing, it obviously suits him as 12 minutes later he bagged our second try which was converted by Thomas Scott to give us a 12-0 lead at half time. Enjoying the moment at the end of the line Harry Fuller did it again for his second of the day. For those of you who watch our position in the league we needed another try to get a bonus point. The lads never disappoint us and whilst Moortown spent a good period of time camped on our line we dug in and kept them out time after time. With 5 minutes to go Tom Lay did what Tom Lay does and gave us the vital 4th try that sealed the mystical bonus point. A great day for the lads who were solid as a rock. With golden boots Barker injured Thomas Scott managed the back line with authority and bagged 2 conversions. We now wait for confirmation that we have won the league. A weekend off next week will be followed by Stafford, a cup semi final and hopefully a Yorkshire League championship play off. The fun keeps coming guys!!
Our Huddersfield RUFC U14’s reached the Yorkshire Cup Quarter Finals and played against Beverley on Sunday.
We served up some beautiful Yorkshire weather this morning for the visit of Scunthorpe RUFC under 11s. In return, we had a great game of rugby, played in atrocious conditions, but still within the true spirit of the game!

Good luck from everybody at the club to Toby Spooner who sets off on his travels in Asia today! The fly half has been a key man for the Falcons. Falcons manager Joe shiel said, stay safe Spooner enjoy yourself and take a few seconds to look for an Adams apple. Thanks for everything this season and good luck!!
