Falcons

Huddersfield’s Second XV is also known as the Falcons. The Falcons side is a key part of our senior squad and is instrumental in the development of players from Academy and University up to the 1st XV.

The 2022/23 season sees the experienced pair of Darren Neilly and Gav Rhodes return to the club as the coaching team. They will be joined by new attack/backs coach Rob Potter. They will be supported off the field by new Falcons Manager, club legend Joe Shiel. The team will be captained by John Sedgwick with Vice Captain Billy Summers.

The Falcons now play in the very competitive Yorkshire Merit League Championship providing a very good quality competitive fixture list.

Training

All Senior Squad training is currently on a Thursday only from 7.00pm at Lockwood.
