Excellent season for Rishworthians Junior Teams
The 2014-15 season has been one of the most successful for the junior section in its 10 year history. The highlights of the season were the u15s reaching the Yorkshire Bowl Final and the u16s reaching the Yorkshire Cup Final. Both teams ended up as losers but it was still a fantastic achievement.
Under 16s
They had a great season losing only one game, The Yorkshire Cup Final 5-15 to York. They were our first team to reach a Cup Final. Three players were selected for Yorkshire Will Bowers, Jack Davis and San Nunn. Jacob Bower, Max Spolverato, Will McDonnell, Tom Metcalfe, Nathan Cooper and Dylan Hartley-Poulton were all selected for the West Yorkshire U16's.
Under 15s
Also had a good season losing only five games. They reached the Yorkshire Bowl Final but lost 0-19 to to strong Sheffield side. Three players were selected for Yorkshire Kian Stewart. Ben Sutcliffe and Alex Molyneux. Kian Stewart has also been selected for the North of England trials, only our second player to reach this level. Jacob Tansey also played for West Yorkshire u15s.
Under 13s
After good start to the 15 aside game the squad lost momentum during November - December and any hopes of a cup run. However they finished with a flourish only losing 1 game after Christmas
