Some things just go together:
Ant & Dec
Bacon & Eggs
B&I match at Huddersfield YMCA & Bad Weather

Given the exposed position of this venue, and the current near-zero temperatures, it must be touch-and-go whether the match tomorrow will be played.On previous occasions there has been a last-minute switch to Headingley.

If it does go ahead it will be blooming cold up there.

I suspect that, given the construction works at Headers, if the ground at top of the hill, probably need oxygen masks, Hudders YMCA is not playable that the match might be re-scheduled for the Kirkstall training ground all-weather pitch.
However, if it is switched at the last minute to Emerald Headingley, please note that the "guess the attendance" competition will not be valid for this match.

Looks like win/win/win for you, WW, judging by the Prediction League.

Way too many points. A win and four tries is plenty.

I said win win because we blooded lots of youngsters as well as the victory. Our groundstaff were the real heroes today getting the pitch fit to play on.

Overall, the club have really well manage this event: the pitch preparation, blooding youngsters and playing at a ground appropriate to the likely crowd. If the match has generated any local interest or cash for the YMCA team then that is a bonus.

I have (rightly IMHO) criticised the B&I Cup in the past, but this really is using it in the right way.

I've been colder up there as the wind was not too bad yesterday. TBH we sat in the stand as it snowed off and on and some of us didn't want hat hair for a big night out.

Great to see so many of the main squad + Jonah and Max Green supporting the youngsters. Good afternoon out watching an entertaining match with plenty of positives across the park for players young and not so young.
