WHARFEDALE Rugby Club have signed a pair of youngsters who can play at fly half.

Jack Blakeney-Edwards, who joined the club in early October, kicked 14 points in a solid debut against Preston Grasshoppers.

Originally from London, Jack moved to Kendal as a youngster and played in the juniors at Kirkby Lonsdale before earning a rugby scholarship to Durham School and being picked for the Newcastle Falcons Academy.

As a student in Leeds, he played for Otley and then signed for Darlington Mowden Park where he was selected for the Yorkshire County squad in 2018 and greatly impressed Wharfedale coaches Jon Feeley and Jon Skurr.

Jack spent the summer playing for Sydney club Gordon Highlanders and, on his return, played two games for Kendal before committing to Wharfedale.

Will Edwards made his debut at centre in the pre-season friendly with Rotherham Titans and registered with the club before the first league match at Peterborough Lions, where he started at 10 and kicked two conversions in the 26-12 win. He also played well in games against Sedgley Park and Hull Ionians.

Originally in the junior ranks at Selby RUFC, Will is currently studying at Durham University where he is a close friend of Wharfedale player Will Lawn.
