Blue & Golds Show Heart in Tough Match at Leeds

October 11, 2010

As the scoreline suggests this game was mission impossible. The blue and golds travelled to Leeds last Saturday against a side which would certainly not be out of place in the Premier Division of the National Conference if they possessed the facilities to be there.

Blue & Golds Drop Points at Rangers

September 26, 2010

The blue and golds will consider this one a point lost rather than a point gained from this trip to Hull University. They attempted to play adventurously in blustery conditions which resulted in some spectacular tries but at times they made one pass too many when a more direct style of play was required. On a day when many players were having an off day the man of the match…


Beverley Tame the Tigers at the Leisure Centre

Shortly after a well worked move amongst the forwards saw popular publican…

The sun drained the…
