NOW it's on!
Huddersfield Rugby Union Club's eagerly-awaited return clash with the YMCA has been confirmed for Saturday week.
Following YM's 'no-show' and eleventh-hour cancellation on December 30, the Laund Hill club sent a letter of apology to Huddersfield offering them a re-match on the first available date for both clubs.
And with both teams having ended their involvement in the Cups, then January 20 became the first free date.
Huddersfield have today confirmed their willingness to host the re-match that date.
Huddersfield won the first encounter 21-17 at Laund Hill on December 23 and were expecting the return the following week.
But, sadly, YMCA found themselves embarrassed after a raft of withdrawals left them short of players and forced them to pull the plug on the fixture.
Worse followed, however, as they failed to communicate that fact to Huddersfield personnel.
Committees from both clubs have been very keen to re-establish what many years ago was a popular annual fixture between the town's two union clubs, and there was much delight in both camps when the first game proved a success.
"Obviously we could not call off a League fixture to get the game in, so the 20th was our first available blank date," said YM secretary Keith Oldham.
"We are calling off our entire programme across the board that day, seconds, thirds and veterans, and urging everyone, players and supporters alike, to get down to Lockwood Park," he added.
