 Several minutes later Macclesfield were able to take the lead; Matt King’s impressive run from the half-way line was offloaded to scrum-half Matt Rhodes to score down the left. Eaton’s conversion brought the score to 5-10.

 Dave Marwick then saw yellow with five minutes to play in the first half, Richmond were able to capitalise on the advantage as Steve Wood scored from a driving maul. 

 The conversion went wide to bring the score to 10-10.

 Richmond took the lead soon into the second half, as Henry Taylor scored an individual effort to the right of the posts. The conversion went wide to go 15-10 up.

 The Blues had a dominant spell of ten minutes in Richmond’s half, however failed to find the gaps and possession went back to the home side.

 Macclesfield’s last chance of the game came from a scrum in the top left corner of the pitch, the ball went wide for Matt King to drive over the line to level the match once again.

 Tom Eaton’s conversion went wide, however was allowed to retake as several Richmond players were too quick off the goal line.
