York Acorn aim to end season on high
9:55am Thursday 17th October 2013 in Rugby League
A DARING double mission will be embarked upon by York Acorn in the National Conference League premier division finale.
Acorn head to the home of Thatto Heath Crusaders, who know a victory will give them the premier championship. But while it’s the other extreme for Acorn – they have already been relegated – they are one of the few teams to have already conquered Thatto.
Recalled coach Scott Rhodes; “They came to our place earlier in the season thinking they were going to turn us over but we beat them convincingly. So I am sure they will be a bit more wary of us now.”
Besides the quest for a league double and spiking their hosts’ title tilt in the last match, Rhodes was also hoping his men could spring a fitting farewell for centre Alan Thompson, who plays his last game on Saturday before jetting to Australia.
“He has been fantastic for us for a couple of seasons now, so it would be great to give him a good send-off,” said Rhodes.
