News from the Blues 20th Nov

Saturday’s win against Blackheath was a good test of character for the Blues, as the last 30 minutes proved to be a tense display of defensive rugby.

After Frankie Barker scored their third try, Macclesfield looked like they were about to go on to score a fourth to take home a bonus point.

However Blackheath weren’t ready to give up and there were several chances in the second half that would have left them scratching their heads as to how they didn’t result in a try.

The forwards showed good strength and composure to hold the Londoners at a stalemate, and despite a slow start, the Blues set piece routine improved as the match went on.

When Blackheath did find the gaps, wingers Josh Fowles, Edd Stobart and full-back Jack Moorhouse were forced into making tackles as the last men in defence.

However the Blues did well to get back and behind the ball, and it was clear at the end of 80 minutes when the visibly exhausted squad came off the pitch that the side had done well to claim the four points.

Next week Macclesfield face a bigger challenge; Esher away. Esher have picked up eight wins so far this season and occupy the fourth spot in the table.

They lost 20-14 to Rosslyn Park on the weekend, while Ealing put nine tries past Sedgley Park in a resounding 59-17 win.

Old Albanian made the short trip to Cambridge and picked up a 46-31 win as they continue their impressive form.

Coventry and Tynedale both enjoyed home wins, as they beat Wharfedale and Fylde respectively.

Loughborough Students won their fifth game in the last six matches, picking up a narrow 25-24 win away at Richmond.

In the last match of the weekend Blaydon beat Cinderford 24-10 to remain in third position in the league.

Elsewhere in the club the Lions carried on their impressive run of form by destroying Sedgley Park 2s 82-12.

The 2s have won their last five games in a row and don’t look like stopping just yet. They play Fylde 2s next week at home.

The 3s just missed out against Waterloo, losing 10-12 in the low-scoring game.

The 4s and Vets had no matches over the weekend, while the Senior Colts played against Chester, losing 12-36.
