Newsome Panthers have taken a 33-strong squad of Under 14 and Under 15 players on tour to Perpignan.
The Panthers have struck up a relationship with French club AC Baho XIII over the past few seasons.
The French club brought a team to play at Newsome at Under 12 level in 2012 when the home team were victorious, and earlier this season AC Baho XIII sent an Under 15 squad over to play and train at Hall Bower.
An invitation for a return was made for the Spring Bank holiday and Under 14 manager Chris Barton and Under 15 fund raiser Liz McGuire set about raising £15,500.
From November to March the boys have done four supermarket bag packs, a 10-mile sponsored walk, a Giants bucket collection and a car boot sale.
The friends and parents have enjoyed a curry night and comedy night which were both successful.
The Panthers are grateful to main sponsors, Easilift, Howdens, Huddersfield RLCPA, Northern Powergrid, One 17 Design and Sovereign Health Care.
The Panthers prepared for their tough game in Perpignan next week with the Under 15 side 30-14 winners at home against Oulton Vikings.
They suffered defeat earlier in the season at Oulton and got off to the worst possible start.
From the kick off the ball was fumbled under the posts and a chasing Viking picked it up and touched down.
The Newsome boys made lots of uncharacteristic mistakes and Oulton went further ahead with an unconverted try.
It took 20 mins for the Newsome team to get on the score board when, after a good break by centre Joey Gatus, he passed to the supporting Harry Newman for him to go over.
Within minutes back rower Alfie Copley intercepted to level the scores before Newman added his second on the stroke of half-time to put the Panthers ahead for the first time 16-10.
With the use of the slope the visitors must have been confident of success, especially as their last try came within a minute of the restart.
Fine tackling stints from Gatus and hooker Jordan James killed any further attacks and the last ten minutes belonged to Newsome.
Further tries came from winger Innes Senior who squeezed over in the corner, James from acting half back and Gatus in the corner after a break by Copley.
Newman added two conversions to make the final score 30-14, with Luke Hanson winning the opponent’s man-of-the-match and Newsome gave their award to Copley.
