News from the Blues 1st Oct

First of all, a big congratulations to the Blues for securing their first points of the season, in an impressive 36-10 victory against Cambridge!

It has been a very difficult start to the season; as all of Macc’s early opposition have all gone on to do well against other sides, especially Ealing and Cinderford who both sit in the top three.

It is good to see the errors from previous weeks have started to disappear from the Blues performance, and I’m sure the side will only improve with time.

It is easy to forget that the side has been struck with a lot of injuries, as well as a team that is trying to integrate a group of new players, something which does not happen overnight.

 If the match against Cambridge was a sign of things to come, then it seems the perfect time for the Blues to get their campaign back on track.

Next week Blues face Coventry, who last year beat us at their ground, and lost at Priory Park. They haven’t enjoyed the best of starts this year and sit in 11th place, having won two and lost three so far.

The following week Macclesfield will face Loughborough Students at home, a side that have lost five out of five matches so far.

A potential ten points are up for grabs in the next two weeks, ten points which could prove to be crucial at the end of the season.

Elsewhere in the league early highflyers Ealing drew 27-27 with Richmond, keeping them on top of the league just in front of Blackheath and Cinderford.

Recently promoted Loughborough Students lost 10-32 to Wharfedale as they continue to struggle in the National League 1.

Esher battled to a hard-fought victory against Old Albanian, winning 54-41. An impressive 14 tries were scored between the two sides.

Next week’s opposition Coventry lost 27-15 at Rosslyn Park, while Blackheath, Fylde and Tynedale all picked up wins over the weekend.

Unfortunately Macclesfield 2’s did not have the same success as the 1’s, missing out on a draw by just one point, losing 16-17 against Caldy.

The 3’s enjoyed a 30-17 victory against Leigh, while the 4’s match against Christleton was postponed to a later date.

The 5th team lost 10-43 to local opposition Crewe & Nantwich. The Senior Colts also lost 12-45 to Wirral Senior Colts.

 On a different note, it is very sad news to hear about the death of Tony Slater, a stalwart of our rugby club for many years.

Tony was an ex-player, Life Vice President and Millennium member and one of life’s great characters.

Our thoughts go out to all of Tony’s family and friends at this time. He will be sorely missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing him.
