Champion Schools double-header all set for Featherstone

The Year 11 Boys and Year 11 Girls Finals will be hosted at Featherstone Rovers' LD Nutrition Stadium on Tuesday...

England Youth stars set to go head-to-head

Featherstone Rovers will host Brooksbank School's clash with Castleford Academy in the Year 11 Champion Schools final on Tuesday, 7pm kick off.

The two sides are old adversaries, having faced off a number of times in recent years, including a remarkable Year 10 final in London last year, where Ritchie Westwood's late drop goal was the difference in a 11-10 win for Cas.

The West Yorkshire rivals both boast England Youth players, with Cas halfback Westwood and Corey Johnson playing in England's recent series win over France, while Brooksbank's Morgan Smithies captained the side alongside fellow Brooksbank and Siddal team mates Amir Bourouh and Riley Dean.

National Girls champions to be crowned

The Year 11 Girls final will also take place on Tuesday, kicking off at 5.30pm, as St Peter's from Dewsbury take on Peterlee-based Shotton Hall.

St Peter's enjoyed a 46-12 win over Sirius Academy from Hull in the Year 10 Final last year, with full back Caitlin Beevers proving to be the star of the show, scoring four tries.
