Stanningley set to host Girls RL Finals Day

Stanningley set to host Girls RL Finals Day

Head along to Stanningley for the double-header this weekend!

The 2018 Girls Rugby League season reaches its climax this weekend, as the Girls Finals Day takes place.

The u14s and u16s Grand Finals will be hosted at Stanningley on Saturday.

The Under 14s Grand Final kicks things off at 11am as Illingworth take on Dewsbury Moor.

Illingworth finished second in the league after winning 12 of their 16 games this season, before an 18-10 home semi-final win saw them seal their Grand Final spot.

Meanwhile, Moor finished fourth in the league, collecting ten wins and two draws, and an impressive 34-0 semi-final triumph at league leaders Fryston Warriors last weekend secured a place at the Finals Day.

The two sides have faced off twice in the league 2018, with Moor claiming a pair of wins over their opponents this weekend.

The Under 16s Grand Final brings the curtain down from 12.30pm, with Featherstone Lionesses going head-to-head with Cutsyke Raidettes.

The Raidettes come into the game as favourites having won all of their league games this year, capping off their campaign with a 28-4 semi-final win on home turf.

But Featherstone lost just twice in 2018 and beat Shaw Cross Sharks 20-8 last weekend to ensure their progress to the final.

And we could be set for a close encounter if their head-to-head record is anything to go by; Cutsyke beat the Lionesses 24-18 at home back in June, while they won a thriller 16-14 on the road in September.
