 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.
