Rishworthians 30
Moortown 24

Rishworthians pulled off the shock result in Yorkshire 1 today but find themselves playing in Yorkshire 2 next season. It looked like they were going to pull off the great escape but Hullensians scored a late try to beat Selby and avoid relegation.

It didn't look good at Copley when Rish found themselves a try down in the first few minutes but Rish dug in and traded penalities to stay in touch at 6-10. Moortown scored another try but Rish hit a purple patch and came back with a penalty try and a conmverted try to go in at the break in the lead 20-17. In the second half Rish found themselves down to 13 men and looked as if Moortown would cut loose but some heroic defending reduced Moortown to a converted try while Rish piled over for a converted try and a penalty for a famous win...... .

Summer Touch Rugby

Summer touch rugby

The club are hosting a summer touch rugby event to run on Monday evenings 7-9pm starting from 6th May. The event is open to everyone so it would be great to see as many of you as possible at the club including all players and ex players, junior players 14 and over, junior coaches, junior parents and any non members are very welcome. In order to encourage the fairer sex to get invoved there must be at least one female in the team.

This should be loads of fun for players to keep their fitness up off season, or anyone else looking to improve their fitness or anyone who just wants to give rugby a go in a safe environment. Games are 7 a side and 10 minutes duration. There is an entrance fee of £15 per team

The clubhouse will be open so if you just want to come and watch the bar will open and Dave will be there to keep you refreshed.

The event is being run by Oli Marshall who has come through our mini/junior ranks to play open age rugby and is an RFU qualified coach. If you are interested come down and have a look or contact Oli by e-mail on touchrugbysevens@gmail.com with any queries
