The men's 1st XV has reached the final of the Yorkshire 4 Shield competition for the second year running. The team is aiming to successfully defend the shield having won it last season. The two teams have faced each other twice this season and have contested two hard-fought games. Burley won both games by a single point, winning 11-10 in December and 8-7 back in October. However, the Thirsk team is confident and has had a good run of form recently, winning 7 of its last 8 games. Kick-off is at 3pm away in Burley. Good luck to all the players.
