ATTACK-minded Wharfedale have Tynedale in their sights after a 40-30 win at Huddersfield last Saturday.

"It was a really pleasing win, particularly in terms of attack, " said Greens' coach Jon Feeley. "We moved the ball well and caused Huddersfield problems throughout. We had more line breaks in this game (13) than we've had all season."

In his second season as coach of Wharfedale, Feeley said the Greens' attacking instincts are developing nicely.

"In our first season last year, our number one plan was to shore up the defence. In our second year, we're trying to increase the number of points we score while maintaining a strong defence.

"It takes time to build a good attack, and we're getting better as we become more cohesive as a unit."

Feeley will be hoping those attacking instincts serve his team well as they prepare to host Tynedale at the Avenue at 3pm this Saturday.

"Tynedale have a long history as a club closest in nature to our own. They're based in a similar setting and the two clubs have played each other many times through the league system. Their coach, Ben Woods, is a mate of mine and he's formed a strong unit up there."

Wharfedale will be without Ben Leacock, who sustained a shoulder injury last Saturday and had to go off after two minutes.

Feeley said his replacement, Sam Smith, played well as did Josh Prell, who started at centre in place of Ben Blackwell (dead leg), who will face a fitness test this week.

The coach also said two players with long-term injuries, second rowers Josh Burridge and Matty Houghton, played well for the Foresters last Saturday in their return to action after several months out.

He also said Josh's brother, Tom Burridge, also returned to action for the third team after three or four years out of the game, and the coach said he will be keeping his eye on the talented player.
