News from the Blues 16 Jan

What a performance and what a result for Blues away in East London against Barking!

In conditions perfect for rugby, Macc showed their class and dominated from start to finish. The win is now a fifth straight for Blues now and the good form has seen them just nine points off leaders Jersey.

The league continues to throw up some unpredictable results with Ealing picking up just a losing bonus point against in-form Cinderford, while Jersey edged Rosslyn Park in front over 3,500 people.

The one thing that is becoming evident is the need to keep winning and despite having a small squad, Macc are showing they have the skills and firepower to mix it with the best in the league.

What is interesting is they have become somewhat of an unexpected force in the league of late and while no-one seems to be mentioning them alongside the likes of Jersey, Rosslyn Park or Ealing, Blues are finding a way to win keep within touching distance of the sides chasing promotion.

The Mulchrone brothers once again showed their class on Saturday, with five tries between them while the forwards continue to weigh in with some brilliant performances to help dominate whoever we play.

We welcome Cambridge to Priory Park on Saturday as Blues look to make it six on the bounce, while the visitors have won just two in six outings.

The reverse fixture earlier in the season produced a thrilling encounter and perhaps one of blues’ best performances of the season as they won 35-32 at Volac Park.

Saturday’s match is also a special occasion as it is the Breast Cancer benefit lunch which is sure to be a great event.

It would be great to see a good turnout for an exceptionally good cause, and let’s hope it comes with another victory on the field!

Elsewhere in National League One, Jersey welcome the impressive Cinderford, Fylde host Blaydon and Ealing take on Wharfedale.

Rosslyn Park are also at home on Saturday with Tynedale the visitors to Priory Lane, while towards the bottom of the league, Barking and Stourbridge travel to Coventry and Blackheath respectively, and Birmingham and Solihull host Sedgley Park.

Around Priory Park then and the seconds went down 28-17 away at Caldy, while the fourths went top of the league as they beat Didsbury 25-14. The thirds weren’t in action this week as their match against Rossendale was postponed, while the Vets sealed a second straight win with a 23-5 victory over Kidsgrove and will look to make it three when they face local rivals Congleton.

Hope to see you all on Saturday, let’s keep behind the lads and support them all the way up the league.

Come on Macc!
