Rugby Notes from ‘Clubman’

After taking an early lead at Leicester Road on Saturday with an opportunist try that gave The Blues heart on their first ever visit to Hinckley it all went downhill and in the end a comprehensive defeat saw the side return to Priory Park pointless and still seeking that run which will take the side away from the danger area in Two North.

It gets no easier as second placed Tynedale – with whom we have a long history – visit Priory Park on Saturday following their 47-11 victory over Sheffield so it’s time to get your support on line come 3.pm.to get behind the side.  Elsewhere in Two North the big surprise was the first defeat of the season being inflicted on leaders Stourbridge who went down 20-14 at Sheffield Tigers thus reducing their lead at the top to six points over Tynedale. Sedgley Park, Sale, South Leicester and Leicester Lions all had good results at the top end of the table whilst Wharfedale sit rock bottom after their high scoring 43-30 defeat at Sedge with Sheffield just above them five points adrift of Otley and just seven from The Blues. – read more >>
