• 1st XV welcome Pontefract, hoping to build on their two away victories against them – once in the League and once in the Yorkshire Cup.  See the full match programme here.
  • 2nd XV have a trip down the road today hoping to play Hull Ionians 2nds
  • 3rd XV heads to BP Chemicals for the first league fixture of 2024 – always tough opposition to beat
  • Ladies 1st XV make the long trip over to play Kendal Wasps Ladies on Sunday.  This will be a very tough fixture as Kendal lie second in the league, having only lost two games all season
  • Colts travel to Malton on Sunday

Since a couple of hiccups in October, the Woldsmen have gone on a five-match unbeaten run. This sees them established in third position in the table and, with Harrogate coming unstuck at home against Ilkley last time out, have narrowed the gap to second place.  With a good win this weekend to keep the winning run going, they can put the pressure on the teams above.

The next couple of weeks sees the 1st XV travel away to league leaders York, followed by a tricky away fixture at Ilkley. These fixtures will be key for the promotion push.
