News from the Blues 8th April

Saturday’s defeat was a disappointing result for the Blues, although the visitors from Surrey proved why they are sitting in second place with a very convincing performance to win 62-12.

While Macclesfield have been battling to avoid relegation, Esher have had their own battle near the top of the table for second place.

While Ealing Trailfinders have near enough won the league and secured promotion this year, it has been fierce battle for second place between Rosslyn Park, Blaydon and Esher.

It was always going to be one of Macclesfield’s toughest fixtures this season, and despite two good tries from Tom Cruse and Matt King the Blues were unable to cause an upset.

A fine game from Esher’s Charlie Walker made it a nightmare for Macclesfield’s defence, while fly-half Luke Daniels and flanker Jack Clifford also played well.

Even though the side were unable to make it eight wins from eight, the Blues still occupy 13th place in the league as Wharfedale lost their match on Saturday, the score 50-3 against Rosslyn Park.

Wharfedale still have a game in hand over Macclesfield, which makes the upcoming match even more important if the Blues are to survive the drop.

In what could be the decisive game of the season, Macclesfield travel away to Wharfedale on Saturday for a 3.00pm kick-off.

The club have put on a coach for supporters to travel down and cheer on the Blues, if you would like to book a place please contact Bev Roberts at bev@maccrugby.co.uk. The price will be approximately £10 a head.

In the National League One, Ealing Trailfinders extended their lead at the top of the table with a 41-29 victory against Loughborough Students.
