Rampant Rangers

BRIGHOUSE Rangers welcome Pennine League Division One side Ackworth Jaguars (Saturday 2pm) in the first round of the Hamuel Reichenbacher Yorkshire Cup.

For the third consecutive week, Rangers face new opposition..

Ackworth, coached by Leeds Rhinos England international Rob Burrow, have finished in a top five position for the last three years and have also won their first two matches.

It will be Brighouse’s toughest challenge and promises to be a physical and thrilling match.

With the second team’s season not starting for another two weeks, competition for a first team shirt is fierce. Numbers at training continue to grow. The surplus of players for team selection will remain a welcome dilemma for player-coach Alex Muff and his coaching team.

The second round draw of the Yorkshire Cup will held live in the Brighouse Sports Club after the game.
