Club of the Week | Waterhead Warriors

Waterhead Warriors are this week's rugby-league.com Club of the Week, after a hosting a star-studded charity Touch tournament on Sunday.

The annual event was held in aid of the Danny Jones Defibrillator Fund and saw ten teams take part.

Men, women and children were all welcome to take part, with an entry fee for all players of £10 donated to the Fund.


Teams included fellow local community clubs as well as current and former Waterhead players, with former Great Britain stars Kevin Sinfield, Paul Sculthorpe and Barrie McDermott, as well as Terry O'Connor, all taking part.

The club had already undertaken heart screening free of charge for all players, friends and family at the club.

This weekend's touch tournament was all about raising funds for the Fund and having fun, with a competitive edge.

And it was Siddal's guest 7-a-side team who came out tournament winners, finishing the day without defeat.

The ten teams were split into two groups of five, with the top two from each group progressing to the semi finals.

Siddal, who were able to call upon Huddersfield Giants star Kruise Leeming for the afternoon, beat the hosts Waterhead in the final by two tries to one, with Jamie Greenwood named Player of the Tournament.
