News from the Blues 15th Oct

Coming up against a team like Rosslyn Park, in our current form, was always going to be difficult.

After Saturday’s result they are sitting in second place behind Ealing, with 27 points. This compared to the Blues, bottom with six points.

Yes, it has been a very tough start. Whether it has been our injury crisis, or the fact that we’ve played five of the top seven teams so far, we haven’t managed to get the results.

It’s not all doom and gloom for Macclesfield, as next week has the potential to lift us out of the bottom spot and up two places.

That is why next week is such a crucial game, where Blues take on Loughborough Students at Priory Park.

They have also suffered a difficult start the season, only just picking up their first win on Saturday against Old Albanians, narrowly beating them 13-12.

Both sides will be raring to go for this match, and as Geoff Wappett put it after the match against Rosslyn Park; it will be a scrap.

Looking back at the Rosslyn Park game, some would only see the fact that we were beaten. However there were many positives to be drawn from the 25-30 defeat.

Our second half performance was a lot better than in recent weeks, we stuck with it and battled to the very last kick of the match; a Tom Eaton penalty kick that secured us the bonus point.

Less mistakes and turning the ball over meant more scoring opportunities and spells of possession.

If we can take the same fight and spirit into the Loughborough game then it’s all to play for. The next five points could prove to be the most important of the season.

Cambridge also failed to win, losing 30-10 away at Richmond. Meanwhile Blackheath were left disappointed after coming close against Ealing, losing 41-42 in the high-scoring match.

Esher and Fylde both impressed this week, beating Sedgley Park and Cinderford respectively.

It was very much a day of close wins, as Coventry surprised Tynedale, winning 23-22 away.

Blaydon also picked up a win, beating Wharfedale 32-28.

Elsewhere in the club the Lions enjoyed a 36-26 victory against Chester. The 3’s were unfortunate in losing 14-0 against Widnes.

The 4’s also struggled against Bowden; missing out 19-27. Meanwhile the Vets had their game postponed until a later date.
