Lions Second Test: breakfast, beer and banter at the Baths Hotel

Macclesfield Rugby Club played host to over 70 rugby-mad enthusiasts at the Second Lions breakfast at the Baths Hotel, Macclesfield on Saturday, 29 June.

The final result may not have been what these rugby die-hards had hoped for, but the Lions battled until the very end and could well have won the fixture on any other day. Still, the craic was certainly good; ask anyone who attended the Lions breakfast at the Baths Hotel on Saturday. The sell-out audience were promised breakfast, beer and banter, and that’s certainly what they got. The rugby-mad audience may have come away disappointed, but 140 bacon rolls and many pints of beer probably played went some way to softening the blow.  If there’s any consolation it’s that the Lions’ breakfast raised £610 for The Wooden Spoon. Besides, the weekend’s narrow loss sets things up nicely for the third and deciding test match next weekend. The series-decider will also be screened at the Baths Hotel next Saturday.

Macclesfield Rugby Club would like to thank everyone who attended the sell-out breakfast for their kindness and generosity. We would also like to thank everyone who was involved in the organisation and running of the event, particularly; our rugby pundits, Dave, Rick, Tommy, Dan and Wilky, for their rugby insights and good humour, Mike, Jamie and Mark for the great organisation and support from the Wooden Spoon, Rob ‘O’ for manning the door, Ian Ridgeway and family for the raffle collection prizes and photographs, Tommy Taylor and Tim Bell from Sale Sharks, David Mair and Jason Walker for the publicity, and Time, Claire and all the staff at the Baths Hotel for their fantastic hospitality.

We hope you can join us again next weekend for the crunch match when the Lions take on Australia in the third and final test. Tickets can be sourced through the Club, or can be purchased on the door on the day, subject to availability. Tickets cost just £5 and include tea/coffee, croissant, bacon roll, guest speakers, guest beer, live match coverage and great craic.
