Anyone who wondered what Macclesfield Rugby Club’s reaction would be following the away defeat to Blaydon, didn’t have to wait too long to discover that the loss hurt deeply, and that they were determined to put the score right. It only took the Priory Park supporters 12 minutes to realise that the team were up for this one, and firing on all cylinders again. But what of director of Rugby and Head Coach, Geoff Wappett: was he happy with the [...]
Back to winning ways for the Blues at Priory Park in a game that was delayed due to an accident on the M6 causing the barking coach to arrive late and, in conjunction with Geoff Wappett, it was agreed to begin fifteen minutes after the scheduled 3.pm. kick off. From the start it was Macclesfield who took the game to their visitors scoring six tries to two in an overall good display to keep the home side in the top [...]
Macclesfield returned to winning ways this weekend in National League One with an impressive 36-21 victory against last year’s runners up Barking.
Well, Saturday’s result wasn’t in the script. Nobody saw it coming. Now you can make excuses or rationalise why it may have played out as it did, but the truth is everybody connected with Macclesfield Blues expected a minimum of four points from the trip up to Blaydon, if not 5. That’s not meant to sound disrespectful to the lads from the North East. Macclesfield Rugby Club has been flying, and was one of the three in-form teams in National [...]
The ‘Macclesfield Express’, going well after three games, came to an unscheduled halt at the buffers of Crow Trees on Saturday when Blaydon ran out worthy winners with a five try display and it was only at the death when the Blues scored a brace of tries to ensure that the important ‘bonus’ point was achieved. We all remember last season the importance of gaining these additional points for scoring four or more tries or remaining within seven points of [...]
Macclesfield suffered their first defeat of the season in National League One this weekend after losing 35-22 against Blaydon.
It was supposed to be the day that England Rugby laid down the gauntlet and showed the rest of the world what it had to offer. Expectations were understandably high, after a successful 6 Nations campaign and victories against Australia, Wales and Ireland. England have undoubtedly been the form team of the Northern Hemisphere and went into the group stages with confidence and a belief in their own abilities. The only problem seems to be our sporting teams don’t seem [...]
If you’re a supporter of Macclesfield Blues and regularly take a trip down to Priory Park on a Saturday afternoon, you must be pinching yourself right now. Played 3 and won 3 and all with bonus points. It’s fantastic really, and nothing can really take the shine off this fine run of form, not even England’s lousy performance against a team they’d apparently already beaten before a ball was kicked. But, what does a head coach do after such a [...]
