FROM THE TOUCHLINE with DAVE CAMPBELL – Hullensians – Valkryies – Zoe back on international duty

19 Feb

Scarborough RUFC is back on the road tomorrow as they take on Hullensians on Humberside. Last week the Seasiders gave league leaders Bradford & Bingley a run for their money at Silver Royd before going down 18-25 to a late try.

Hullensians are fourth in Yorkshire One, just above Scarborough and have been dogged by inconsistency this season typified by recent results where an away defeat at bottom club West Park Leeds (19-18) was followed by the 17-13 home defeat of high-flying Bridlington. Last week they just edged past strugglers Yarnbury 15-14.

The clubs produced a nine-try spectacular when they met in the corresponding game at Silver Royd earlier in the season with Scarborough winning 38-29. Both teams earned a tries-scored bonus point with Scarborough running in five and Hull getting four.

For tomorrow’s game Wesley Langkilde who had a stormer against the Humbersiders earlier in the season, starts in the front row with John Ireland at lock and Richard Scales in the back row. The threequarters are as last week with Mark Hopper, Ben Martin and Toby Welsby on the bench.

ZOE ALDCROFT (CENTRE) FOLLOWING ENGLAND U20s WIN ON THURSDAY EVENING

Zoe Aldcroft continued her stellar England career on Thursday when she played for England under-20s at Aldershot. England won 41-12 and it was the first of three games this season for the under-20s with the squad also taking on France both home and away. The schedule is: England v France: Saturday 5 March, 2pm at Esher RFC followed by the return game two weeks later on the 19th of March at Chantilly RFC, France. I feel it won’t be long before the likeable former Scalby School student now studying at Northumbria University, plays for the full National side.
