News from the Blues 4th Feb

The Blues came up against a side on Saturday that can boast one of the most impressive home records in the league.

Rosslyn Park have won eight games, drawn two and lost none at their ground in central London, and having recently signed several players from London Scottish in the Championship, it was always going to be a stiff test for the Blues on the back of two weeks without a game due to the snow.

It was encouraging to see Ryan Parkinson play a full 80 minutes after having an injury scare in his last outing in January. After visiting the hospital the injury was not deemed as bad as first thought and he impressed playing in his first full game of the season after being plagued by injuries.

Billy Robinson however, who having just returned from injury was ruled out of the match after picking up an injury in training, is set to miss the next few games and will be missed as the Blues come up against Sedgley Park, Loughborough Students and Cambridge in February.

Sedgley Park is the Blues next test, and the side will be looking to leapfrog their local rivals in the league as only two points separate the two teams in what will prove to be a fierce battle.

Last time out Sedgley Park enjoyed a 39-17 win in the sunshine back in September, and the Blues will need to claim all five points if they are chip away at the 16-point gap to escape the relegation zone.

Sedgley lost 34-22 at home on Saturday against Esher, while Cambridge were also beaten, 9-7 at home to Richmond.

Blaydon and Ealing both picked up wins, Blaydon beating Wharfedale 31-4 whilst Ealing overcame Blackheath 21-14.

Loughborough Students pulled of the comeback of the season by beating Old Albanian away 42-40, after being 40-7 down with 30 minutes left in the game.

Cinderford enjoyed a 52-19 win at home against Fylde, while Coventry came out on top against Tynedale, that match finishing 29-19.

Macclesfield 2s were also successful on Saturday as they beat Sedgley Park 39-3 in the rearranged fixture.

2s Head Coach Paul Bartle said: “We took a young side to Sedgley Park, the side included five senior colts who all performed exceptionally well with a couple of old men in there to hold things together.

“The first half was a tough battle but we stayed on top and really put them to the sword in the second half, which included a five minute spell where we only had 13 men on the field.”

The 4s were able to beat Southport 31-12, while the Vets lost to Prenton 2s 54-0. The 3s were without a game.
