Scarborough RUFC’s Joe Marshall was in county action at the weekend as he played a part in Yorkshire under-18s’ 41-22 win over Cheshire at Darlington.

It was Marshall’s county debut and he played 60 minutes of Yorkshire’s win.

Marshall hasn’t been selected in the Tykes squad to face Lancashire this Sunday, but is eyeing a spot in the side for the Durham clash on November 16.

He said: “It was a good game to be involved in and it was great to get a win as our first game as a team.

“The game was played a very fast pace and I enjoyed it.”

Marshall is enjoying making the transition to senior rugby. He added: “It’s going well at the moment. There’s a massive difference between senior rugby and junior rugby, the game is a lot more physical and tactical.

“Everyone is stronger and fitter and you’ve got to make sure you know what you’re doing.”
