News from the Blues 1st April

Geoff Wappett’s side never looked like losing on Friday as the Blues travelled down to 7th placed Blackheath and put in a performance to make many spectators question: How are Macclesfield a side battling relegation?

In fact, if the league had started after Christmas the Blues would be top of the table at this point, and it was definitely a result to match as the side put five tries past the Londoners who have had a very inconsistent season so far.

It was also in Macclesfield’s favour that Blackheath’s kicker Rory Teague was ruled out with an injury; however an impressive team performance gave Macc their seventh win a row and allowed them to jump up to 13th place above Wharfedale, who have the chance to regain that spot with a game in hand.

The only negative was a red card for winger Ed Stobart who played his first game in several weeks after being ruled out through injury.

With the end of the season just around the corner, the Blues have just five games left and next week they face one of the tougher challengers; Esher.

Esher occupy second place in the league, and although the league title is looking like an unrealistic target for the club from Surrey, they are still in hot form as they travel up to Macclesfield after beating Rosslyn Park 32-19 on Saturday, and have only lost two games so far in 2013.

12th placed Tynedale were narrowly beaten 23-21 by Fylde on the weekend, while Ealing put in a convincing performance to beat Sedgley Park 62-7 away.

Cambridge lost 50-12 away at Old Albanians, as the Loughborough Students drew 27-27 with Richmond. The Wharfedale and Coventry game was postponed to the 11th of May, which could prove to be the decisive game at the end of the season as to who stays up.
