WHARFEDALE Under-18s Colts beat Huddersfield 32-13 in a thrilling Yorkshire Cup final at Huddersfield RUFC on Sunday.

A very competitive game saw Wharfedale outscore their opponents five tries to two.

The Greens' set piece came to the fore turning over numerous scrums and line-outs throughout the game and eventually the pressure resulted in Wharfedale scores.

The Greens went behind 5-0 in the first five minutes after a spilt pass and a charge down resulted in a try, but Wharfedale stuck to their game plan and Sam Dickinson, after breaking through four tackles, scored a great try, which Louis Verity converted.

This was quickly followed by Owen Bullock scoring a try after some quick handling by the backs.

Both sides both kicked a penalty before half-time and the score was 15-8.

The Greens then picked up the pace of the game and Omari Kaup-Samuels, Jordan Van Beek and Henry Macnab all crossed the try line after sustained pressure.

Huddersfield came back near the end and were rewarded with a great try of their own, but Wharfedale saw out the final few minutes to gain the trophy.

The team travel to Kettering on Saturday to play in the quarter-finals of the National Cup. Kick-off is 1pm.

They are first Wharfedale Colts team to reach this stage. If they win they will have home ground advantage for the semi-final on either April 13 or 14.

The final will be played the Worcester Warriors' home ground.
