News from the Blues 29th Apr

When Macclesfield hosted Blaydon on the first game of the season, the club from Newcastle proved why they are a top 3 club with a 43-19 win, however on Saturday there did not look to be much in it between the two sides as the Blues fought for a three-point draw.

The result puts us on level points with Wharfedale, who picked up a 30-26 four-point win against Richmond this weekend; however the Blues maintain their position in 13th place due to having won more games.

Tries from Ryan Parkinson, Dean Williams and Chris Jones helped the Blues on their way to three points, as well as one from Elliot Brierley; his tenth try of the season.

The team were still without captain Tom Eaton, who is set to start against Fylde; However Tom Davenport had a confident game at fly-half, while youngster Ashley Platt-Hughes scored two conversions out of four on his debut start.

The fate of our season is still undecided at this stage, and is very much in Wharfedale’s hands. They play Cambridge this Saturday, who have not won a game in 9 games. Wharfedale will be expecting to win that game which makes our clash with Fylde even more important.

Fylde have picked up some impressive wins so far this season, and last month they were able to beat both Ealing and Rosslyn Park which has helped them occupy the 6th spot in the league.

In the reverse fixture Fylde won 36-22 at home, and although the club cannot move up or down in the league, regardless of the result, the visitors will be determined to cause an upset.

Relegated clubs Cambridge and Sedgley Park both lost on Saturday; Cinderford beating Cambridge 47-24, while Sedgley Park lost 37-24 against Rosslyn Park.

League champions Ealing won 41-17 against Coventry, as the Loughborough Students picked up a 29-25 away win at Blackheath.

Old Albanians scored nine tries past Tynedale to win 57-17, and Esher wrapped up their season with a 33-24 win against Fylde, securing them second place overall.

The Lions wrapped up their season last week and were rewarded with a weekend off this week, while the 3s were beaten 33-13 by local rivals Sale.

The 4s lost 56-7 against Christleton, and the Vets game against Whitchurch was conceded.
