COMING off a brilliant 38-24 win against Stourbridge, Wharfedale coach Jon Feeley is asking his Greens to maintain their high standards when they host bottom of the table Peterborough Lions in their last game of the season on Saturday.

"I was very proud of the players," Feeley said of the Stourbridge match. "There effort was superb in the testing conditions.

"Despite the heat, we put our imprint on the game against a very physical team with a pacy set of backs.

"But we showed on Saturday that we have some good players too."

He praised Wharfedale's three backs - Louis Brown, Rian Hamilton and Will Edwards - for their play and work to help Edwards score a try using the full length of the pitch.

Feeley also said Jack Blakeney-Edwards' 16 points from the kicking tee were "critical" to winning the game and his game management and kicking were "vital" on the day.

"We also showed dominance in the scrum," added Feeley. "Our forwards gave us a good platform to win the game.

"We have to maintain those high standards when we Peterborough Lions this Saturday," said Feeley.

The match at the Avenue against already relegated Peterborough kicks off at 3pm.

Wharfedale will be without Dan Stockdale due to farming commitments, but Matt Houghton will return in the pack.

Phil Woodhead, who sustained a head injury last Saturday, will be unavailable, but Feeley said his replacement, Will Lawn, had an excellent game and will be in the team.

Feeley, who along with forwards coach Jon Skurr, committed to Wharfedale for two more seasons, said: "The club are looking at continuity and to build for the upcoming seasons. They believe in us and we wanted to stay in the role.

"A stable coaching team will make the transition for Wharfedale's young Colts to the senior team much easier."

Wharfedale's Under-18s side play in the Colts National Cup final in Worcester on Sunday, May 5.
