Teams from Oakworth , Worth Valley , Oxenhope , Haworth and Nessfield Primaries took to the field at Oakbank playing the non contact version of RL that emphasises the skills of speed ,evasion and passing rather the the more physical aspects of the Sport .

The Cougars Community Team lead by Development Officer Scott Leatherbarrow , assisted by fellow first team squad member Ben Stead , Cougars Head of Youth Development Jeremy Crowther and Volunteer Jack Adams , provided the refereeing expertise for the afternoon which was expertly organised by the Oakbank Clusters Kathryn Sheppard.



‘Eventually after some really close matches the team from Nessfield came out on top ‘said Scott. However all the teams had a great afternoon of sport and really took to Rugby League ¬†and we hope to see some of them on the terraces at Cougar Park supporting the Cougars .’
