ST JOSEPH’S will have revenge very much on their minds when they entertain Moldgreen in the semi-final of the Holliday Cup tomorrow (2.00).
Last Easter, Moldgreen stunned the Huddersfield amateur rugby league world when they pulled off a shock Cup final triumph over their arch rivals.
It’s a result that hurt the Pennine League Premier Division side.
But a lot of that bitter memory could erased this weekend if they get the better of their First Division rivals.
And, once again, it would be a major shock if Joe’s didn’t succeed.
They will certainly go into the tie in confident mood after last week’s crucial League win over Elland.
With no new injuries to report, the home side will be almost at full strength and coach Keith Senior will be looking at another good performance as his side chase the prize of a third consecutive final.
The game starts at 2pm in case extra time is required, with the last-four clash being sponsored by Johnsons of Bankfield Mills.
On the Pennine League front, in-form Emley Moor continue their push towards the Second Division title at home to Dearne Valley Bulldogs, while second-placed Newsome Panthers look to keep up the pressure when they host Morley Borough.
An intriguing title battle between two of the town’s sides is also set to resume in Division III this weekend, with both of them on their travels.
The second-placed Slaithwaite Saracens should be too strong for Hoyland Vikings, and third-placed Lindley Swifts will be bitterly disappointed if they don’t get the better of Odsal Sedbergh.
Underbank Rangers have emerged as the form team in Division IV, and a big score should be on the cards at home to bottom club Silsden Park Rangers.
Meltham All Blacks are also at home, but face a tough task against the second-placed Wortley.
In Division VI, St Joseph’s second string are at Wibsey, while Slaithwaite A travel to Guiseley in Division VII.
