I'm often asked what happened to College Grove after the rugby club's closure.
This article gives an update on the football club that took over the old rugby pitch.

I think that the football/rugby pitch has now been dug up in preparation for an artificial pitch for hockey.

Equally pertinently, what do RU followers in Wakefield do now?  There must be local clubs, but at what standard?  Surely they don't go to Leeds?

That's right. I understand it is going to be blue and pink like the one installed for the Olympics.

Some go to Sandal, some to Otley, some to Doncaster, some to Wharfedale, some to Morley, some to Huddersfield, some even make it as far as Leeds! 

But unfortunetly I would suggest more no longer watch any rugby. Unhappy
