Huddersfield's Second XV is also known as the Falcons. The Falcons side is a key part of senior squad and is instrumental in the development of players from Academy and University up to the 1st XV.

The 2017/18 season sees Mark Garside take over as head coach from Mike Baggs, with Ed Birkhead stepping up to help and manage the side following the sad death of Bob Heppleston. Darren Neilly (Irish) will captain the side again. Mark brings vast experience to the role, having previously been head coach at Heath RUFC, as well as leading Yorkshire and North East Women’s teams. A big challenge awaits in the premier division again!!

The Falcons play in the very competitive Yorkshire Premiership League, providing a very good quality competitive fixture list.

We train Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7.00pm at Lockwood Park.
