News from the Blues 22nd Oct

There was a lot pinned on Saturday’s game against Loughborough Students with only a point to separate the two sides, so what does this mean for the Blues now?

It means it’s going to be a very tough struggle, not only to get a good league position at the end of the season, but as it stands to avoid relegation.

Despite this upset it can be done; it wouldn’t be the first time a club has had a poor start to the season and gone on to do well.

With 22 fixtures left there is a long way to go, and with a squad at full fitness it’s very possible we could have a good run of results in the second half of the season.

Could Tynedale away next week be the match that turns our luck around? Possibly; the Northerners suffered a 63-20 loss to Rosslyn Park on Saturday.

And according to the Rugby paper, this was done with 12 men on the pitch for five minutes of the game.

However, as Geoff Wappett said after the Loughborough match, you shouldn’t look into that result too much; Tynedale away is going to be a very tough fixture.

They are currently sitting in 11th place, 12 points above Macclesfield. Injuries have set them back much like they have done with us, although possibly not quite to the same extent.

Rosslyn Park’s nine tries gave them the victory over Tynedale on Saturday, whilst Wharfedale picked up an 18-16 win away at Sedgley Park.

Fylde beat hosts Cambridge 26-7, as Ealing continued their impressive run of form with a narrow 26-21 win against fourth-placed Esher.

Cinderford and Blaydon both picked up home wins, Cinderford beating Blackheath 34-19 whilst Blaydon enjoyed an action-packed 38-29 victory against Old Albanian.

The last result of the day in the National League 1 was a draw; Richmond holding Coventry to a 20-20 stalemate at the Butts Park Arena in Coventry.

In the Championship ex-Blues Charlie and Fergus Mulchrone both scored tries on their Rotherham home debuts; as they went on to beat Plymouth Argyle 59-26.

Elsewhere in the club the Lions match against Liverpool St Helens was postponed, while the 3’s suffered a 31-8 defeat against Broughton Park.

The 4’s enjoyed a 27-17 victory against Old Bedians; however the Vets narrowly missed out against Sandbach, losing 19-17.
