West Hartlepool 15-18 Driffield: Saturday, 17 February

Following the close defeat at Penrith last Saturday the Woldsmen had to again travel north, but this week to Brinkburn, the home of West Hartlepool RUFC.  Driffield have not won there for at least six seasons but with more success in home matches at Kelleythorpe. ...

Penrith 29-24 Driffield: Saturday, 10 February

This was an epic battle, as the Woldsmen suffered an heroic defeat in a game between two of the league’s front-runners : it certainly fitted the bill.  The Woldsmen arrived at Penrith to find conditions above ground good and a pitch that, although heavy, at...

This weekend’s action : 10 February 2018

Driffield 1st XV make the long journey to the Lake District for their North One East fixture with Penrith. This game was scheduled for the 09 December 2017.  Driffield made the journey, only to have the referee call off the game due to a frozen pitch. Last week...

Driffield 39-14 Northern: Saturday, 3 February

Miserable weather greeted the Woldsmen’s return to Kelleythorpe for the visit of Northern on Saturday. Driffield were hoping to get back to winning ways after the disappointment of the previous week’s reverse at Dinnington. Burns returned to the back row...

Dinnington 25-16 Driffield: Saturday, 27 January

Although in the earlier fixture between these two sides the Woldsmen came out comfortable 42-3 winners, and 12 places separated the clubs in the league, this fixture was never going to be easy as history tells us that trips to Lodge Lane have been notorious for...

Driffield10-9 Alnwick: Saturday, 20 January

The first home game of 2018 saw fellow top-of-the-table contenders Alnwick make the long trip south to a chilly Kelleythorpe. Hard work from the ground staff had ensured the pitch was playable and a large crowd had turned up in anticipation of another exciting game....

This weekend’s action : 20 January 2018

This weekend we welcome Alnwick RUFC to Kelleythorpe for our North One East fixture. This will be a real test : Alnwick are 3rd in the league with 2 games in hand on us (and 3 on Bridlington). This doesn’t mean they are guaranteed the points : their games in...

Cleckheaton 12-22 Driffield: Saturday, 13 January

This weekend’s action took the Woldsmen to Cleckheaton, and their Moor End HQ.  With a good away win at West Leeds last Saturday, Driffield travelled with the knowledge that they are now able to compete even on the most arduous of away fixtures in their North One East...

This weekend’s action : 13 January 2018

It is nearly a repeat of last weekend for Driffield rugby this weekend : the 1st XV head back to West Yorkshire, this time to face Cleckheaton, whilst 2nds, 3rds and 4ths are all at home. After last week’s victory over West Leeds – the first time they have...
