Yorkshire Carnegie RUFC vs Bristol Rugby

Sunday September 14th.  This was the first home game of the new season and was surrounded with great expectations, particularly with the new branding of the club as “Yorkshire Carnegie”.  Sadly the rugby didn’t really measure up and was a scrappy, bad-tempered game with very little of the rhythm and flow that characterises this sport at its best.  Neither team really looked as though they would trouble a Premiership side – I guess Yorkshire can at least console themselves with a notion of “work in progress” for the rebuilt side.  Fans can only hope that there is better, even much better to come!  Bristol won,  26 – 13, which givenn the balance of play, and the number of soft penalties given away, was probably fair enough!

Here’s a few pictures made during the warm up ……
