Sunday’s game against Hull FC saw the Wildcats community team out in full force!
Just prior to kick off there were over 800 children on the pitch breaking a Guinness World Record for the largest remote dance class. Before this however, the 3rd Annual ‘Wakefield College Touch Rugby Cup’ took place on the hallowed turf. In all, 8 teams took to the field to test their skill against each other and fight to be crowned champions.
The teams were split into two pools of 4 with the winners of each pool playing off in a final. 6 of the teams involved came from the Wildcats successful touch rugby league which is currently entering its 9th and penultimate round this week before the social league begins its ten week tournament. The remaining 2 sides were from the Army, with each team representing squadrons in Wakefield and Hull respectively.
The games were played in great spirits and the 2 sides to make the final were Wakefield CRL and All Black Raiders. The final was closely contested with Wakefield CRL just shading the Raiders to claim the trophy – its third different winner since inception.
Organiser Richard Cattley commented, “It was a fantastic event and everyone did really well to keep going as it was a scorching day. A big thank you goes to everyone involved, especially the Army boys as they were in full cammo gear and must have been baking!! Our community department has really shown what we can do this weekend.”
