Yorkshire eyes on Twickenham hat-trick

10 April 2013

  • Bridlington strengthen White Rose challenge
  • Baildon looking for back-to-back success

Yorkshire will be looking for a hat-trick of wins in the finals of the RFU National Knockout Competitions for the second year in succession when their three representatives run out at Twickenham on Saturday, May 4, 2013.

Last season Baildon RFC were the only one of the White Rose contenders to return North with a trophy, the Junior Vase, which they claimed after beating Harrow 6-3. Now they are looking to retain the trophy when they take on Newent RFC from Gloucestershire.

Selby RFC will be part of the Yorkshire trio when they take on Drybrook, also from Gloucestershire, in the Senior Vase final, while Bridlington last weekend became the third team from the Broad Acres to reach the famous turf when they won a weather-postponed RFU Intermediate Cup tie 16-15 against Coalville RFC from Leicestershire.

They will now face Brighton Blues RFC at Twickenham after the East Coast team recovered from a below-par first-half showing to claim victory with a more focused second-half display.
