Yorkshire Carnegie Director of Rugby Chris Gibson says that Ilkley’s impressive home will make a fantastic venue to host his side’s clash with Bath this Saturday, kick off 6pm.

The pre-season game will see the Aviva Premiership side head to Yorkshire for a prestigious pre-season friendly and Gibson has been impressed by the facilities. 

He commented, "I think Saturday will be a fantastic rugby occasion for everyone. The playing surface and changing rooms are top class and I am sure the fans will enjoy the great hospitality available around the ground. The ground is very picturesque and will be a great setting for us to take on a top class opponent in Bath."
