2013 - 14 Season - Under 17's

This season the under 17's move into their fourth season of junior rugby. The main change to the continuum is lifting in the lineout is now permitted. The playing time increases to 35 minutes each way and they now play with a size 5 ball.

This season the squad are automaticaly entered in the Yorkshire cup and are looking forward to a good cup run. Should they fail to win in round 1 they have a second bite at the cherry and enter the Plate competition and should they fail to win in round 1 of the Plate they have another chance in the Bowl competition.

Although they play friendly matches the results are important as they will be used next season to determine which league they play in at under 17 level. There is of course the opportunity to be selected for the West Yorkshire District squad and if good enough considered for the County. So there is plenty to play for.

Anyone interested in joining the squad please come down on a training session or a Sunday morning, we still need a few more players new to the game or experienced to join the squad.
