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 Falcons now play in the very competitive Yorkshire Premiership Division, providing a very good quality competitive fixture list.
