There will be a day of celebration to mark the 120th anniversary of rugby league in Huddersfield next Sunday.
The action will get under way at Fartown at midday when Giants chairman Ken Davy and members of the RFL’s RLCares Association will unveil a blue heritage plaque to commemorate the first game of rugby league played at the ground on September 14, 1895.
It was a match between Huddersfield and Wakefield Trinity, with the home side securing a 10-0 triumph.
Straight after the unveiling ceremony, there will be a Masters match on the Fartown pitch, with the two teams wearing special-edition 120-year RL anniversary shirts.
The two teams in action will be a Huddersfield RL Players Association side and the Halifax Boothtown Masters, and they will then travel to the John Smith’s Stadium to take part in a 120th-anniversary parade during half-time of the Giants v Warrington Wolves Super 8s clash.
Huddersfield squad: Lee St Hilaire, Paul Reilly, David Oates, Colin Harris, Damon Scholes, Rob Salmon, Darrell Derose, Johnny Moore, Richard Pearson, Colin Hawkyard, Abraham Philips, John Taylor, Wayne Daley, Nick Corion, Frank Slater, Dave Walsh.
