1968 - Hartlepool Rovers v R.F. Oakes Yorkshire XV

The 1968 Oakes match had a touch of tradition about it for in 1912 Oakes had brought a Yorkshire XV to the Friarage Field to play Rovers (the initial game took place 4 days after the sinkng of the "Titanic"!) to start the Oakes series.

The match of 68 also had a Yorkshire XV as opposition and an action shot from the game is on this gallery.
