News from the Blues 26 Nov

Macclesfield came up against a well-drilled, physical and very capable Esher side on Saturday, the Londoners coming away with a five-pointer after what was a very difficult match for the Blues.

Despite the one-sided score line, Macclesfield enjoyed plenty of possession and had their fair share of attacking opportunities.

Esher were dominant in defence, and after their narrow defeat against Rosslyn Park last week that what was described as a “very physical game”, the recently relegated side clearly deserve to be sitting in such a high position in the league.

There were several individual displays of some impressive attacking rugby; Tom Cruse, Elliot Brierley and Matt Rhodes all impressed throughout the game, whilst Dave Blackwell came on in the second half and did well.

Ed Stobart had a magnificent final 20 minutes and was resilient to the end, despite having his head bandaged up after a particularly nasty ruck.

Next week the Blues will enjoy a rare weekend off, a chance for the squad as a whole to recover from what has been a difficult start to the season.

The weekend after the Blues take on Wharfedale at home, the mid-table side enjoyed a shock 33-24 win at home against on-form Rosslyn park.

Old Albanian and Fylde also picked up home wins, beating Coventry and Richmond, whilst Blaydon beat Cambridge 39-12.

Tynedale continue to struggle near the bottom of the table, they lost 14-21 away at Blackheath.

Sedgley Park lost at home to Cinderford, the high-scoring game finishing at 29-39, whilst finally Ealing travelled to Loughborough Students, the Londoners scored six tries to win 41-5.

On the same day the rest of the Macclesfield teams enjoyed widely successful day, the Lions beating Fylde 43-13 to continue their successful campaign so far this season.

The 3s lost a close match against Aldwinians, 14-20 the final result. The 4s had a fantastic 52-5 win against Buxton, with people describing the achievement as an “awesome win” on Twitter.

And finally the Vets won 27-5 against Manchester, whilst the Senior Colts game against Lymm was postponed.

Of the 45 students attending today’s joint @RuskinHigh and @STM_Performanc @CBRE #AllSchools after school club 15 of those taking part were girls - throwing themselves into the deep end with tackling, presenting and, for the older ones, rucking and scrummaging too #whoopwhoop 🙌

So good to get along to @candnrufc this evening and meet & greet Dawid (@Shavington_Ac ) and Oliver (@RuskinHigh ) as they took part in their first U12s session joining up with Will and Logan (@Shavington_Ac ) making 4 players transitioning to the club for that team already 😊😊

Thanks to the @CBRE #AllSchools for helping to promote our wonderful game. The programme in @candnrufc has raised rugby’s visibility and we saw an incredible 45 year 7-11s boys & girls from @RuskinHigh & @STM_Performanc at the joint after school club #amazing

A fun @CBRE #AllSchools session with the mixed year 7 @Shavington_Ac today - revisiting the tackle and then into games. Some super learning and loads of enthusiasm- thank you 😊😊
