Harrogate for 1st XV

Date: 11 November 2022

Hoppers travel to Harrogate tomorrow afternoon in what is looking like a crucial game even at this early stage of the season.

Harrogate started the season on -5 points owing to a points deduction carried over from last season. They have so far picked up a single victory at Huddersfield on 1st October. Hoppers have only claimed 2 victories thus far and so this could be a very important game when we look back at the end of the season.

Head Coach Joel Unsworth has made changes this week with Sale Sharks Dual Registered pair Harry Thompson and Will Riley back in the side as well as a first start for fly-half Will Hunt since he rejoined the club a couple of weeks ago. Joel added “Off the back of a strong performance last week at Tynedale, we have had a good week’s training and the boys are raring to go against Harrogate.”


Huge congratulations to Club Captain Ally Murray (pictured above) who makes his 250th appearance for the club and Tyler Spence who makes his 100th.
