Match report Sunday 31st January
At last some rugby at Rishworthians. The parents spent time raking and spiking the pitches while teamms went through pre match training. For the first time this year the full minis section turnout at home to play competitive games. The minis showed little sign of being ring rusty and recorded a clean sweep over the Bees. A big thank you to all those who gave up their time to help prepare the pitches ready for some matches

Under 6's The Micros

The micros were training in the warmth of the Rishworth school sports hall.

Under 7's The Young Guns
The Young Guns just pip the Bees

Rishworthians 13 - 12 Bees A
There was no match report produced today

Under 8's The Leopards
No Game

Rishworthians 0 - 0 Bees A
Bees under 8s only had 2 players so they joined in with the under 7s. The under 8s had enough players for 2 teams so had a competitive training session

Under 9's The Panthers and Pumas
Sykes 14 tries takes the sting out of the Bees

The panthers & pumas continued their recent good form with 2 wins and 2 draws against Bradford Bees. Half term holidays meant playing numbers were down and Bees travelled short but Rishies made up the numbers from their larger pool of players, Despite the poor weather with a driving wind and rain there was a great performance this morning from both sides, with some great rugby played by all, excellent passing and tenacious defending. In order to give everyone playing time the coaches played 4 x 15 minute games.

Rishworthians Panthers 7 - 7 Bees A
The Bees struck first, but with the lead changing hands several times it eventually ended in a 7-7 draw with tries from Archie Sykes 3, Hayden Stansfield 2, JimBob Brookes and Dawson Walsh.

Rishworthians Panthers 10 - 3 Bees B
Panthers opened the scoring and never looked back in a dominant game, winning 10-3. with tries from Archie Sykes 7 Hayden Stansfield 2, Jim Bob Brookes,

Rishworthians Pumas 1 - 1 Bees A
A Very close encounter with Honours even at 1 each, Sykes scoring for Rishworthians.

Rishworthians Pumas 4 - 2 Bees B
As the parents were just dreaming of a warm cuppa and a seat by the fire, the lads again played brilliantly to secure a 4-2 win. Tries scored by Sykes 3 and Hayden Stansfield.

All the parents this morning were talking about how well the boys are playing, more and more as a team every week, and what great spirit they have evidenced by the number of players and their attitude when the weathers grim and the games tough, the heads never drop and visibly the opposition often 'don't want to know when they are getting on top!!

Under 10's The Lions and Tigers
Lions and Tigers continue to improve

There was a very good turnout of 15 despite driving wind and rain plus half term commitments by the under 10s today. A depleted Bees side arrived with 5 players but Rishworthians volunteers Bradley Drury and Frank Darby swapped shirts for the day to make up the numbers for the Bees.

Rishworthians 4 - 2 Bees A
In a competitive first game. Rishworthians attacking flair gave them the edge whereas play in mauls and rucks was evenly contested. Some great rucking from Aiden Wright in particular allowed quick ball out to Daniel Dean who made the most of his opportunities to run in 3 tries. Ethan Cooke also scored a try after a jinking run against a determined Bees defence. Bees scored two tries in reply, one by Bradley Drury on loan from Rishworthians.

Rishworthians 5 - 1 Bees B
In the second game the score line was 5 -1 with tries from Leo Kemp who sliced through the Bees defence on two occasions, two from Arthur Davies who made himself available on most occasions and a tenacious effort from Vaughan Hibbert who rolled away from several unsuccessful tackles to score a great individual try.

Under 11's The Saxons
Another good win for Saxons

With a good turnout of 14 lads from Rishworth it was always going to be challenging for the Bees who only could muster 8 players. A game of 4 quarters was agreed to get all the lads involved.

Rishworthians 15 - 8 Bees
Good pressure from the start and passing down the line resulted in a good try from Callum Sutcciffe, sidestepping past his man to score from the 22. Quick counter caught us napping within 30 seconds Bees evened the score. Jake Parkinson crossed the line for a try. Bees capitalised on a missed tackle scoring their 2nd try. Now the boys were in full swing seeing some third phase ball and a nicely worked try from Rhys Hunt quickly followed by a try on the close of quarter by Joe Wild.

Again some text book third phase ball popping down the line resulted in first try of the quarter by winger Will Town. Three neatly executed passes and a 10 yard dash saw Parkinson score in the corner. A spell of serious handling errors allowed Bees to score two tries in the quarter. Some great play from Kai Fenton to cleanly catch a high ball from the kick off and screeching down the right hand side, past the Bradford boys, beautiful TRY

Bees hook a ball against the head and a quick score by the opposition fly half. Rishies responded from the kick off, an excellent attacking jinxing run from Joe Wild and tidy offload to Rhys Hunt for the score. 1 all. Another score from kick off by Josh Beck and Bees squad visibly flagging. From a penalty a quick pass and Joe Wild scores his second try.

Following a rallying cry from our coach the boys to regain composure and start to play better rugby, ball goes through at least 8 pairs of hands, with the penultimate offload by Sutcliffe to put Billington in for the try. Minutes later he scores his second try.

The Bees dig deep and score a super try. Another classy run by Fenton to score from the full length of the park. Another score by Bees from sloppy play is put to rights by Callum Sutcliffe who scores the final try of the morning.

Under 12's The Sharks
Sharks unbeaten run continues

Sharks still remain unbeaten for 2016 with another workmanlike performance over Bradford Bees. The squad now have good numbers following a few new recruits joining recently. Bees travelled four player short but Ben Freeman, Dillon Hilton, Seth Bolton and Billy Mason volunteered to play for Bees.

Rishworthians 30 - 20 Bees
Sharks began strongly and soon had Bees under pressure with some pick and drives from the forwards. From one of the drives Ted Grogan peeled off with the ball at the break down and powered over the line. Further pressure on the Bees line produced tries for Ben Kershaw and Louis Whiteley.

Bees came out after the break fired up to score two tries but a length of the field try from Ted Gogan turned things around. Further tries from Theo Davis and Ethan Grogan stretched the lead.

Bees scored two late tries with one from Rishies loan player Billy Mason.
