Blues 36 – 26 Hull

Macclesfield had to come from behind to clinch the bonus point and beat Hull RUFC 36 – 26 at Priory Park on Saturday.

Ryan Parkinson gave the Blues the lead inside the opening minute crossing for his third tries in two games, the flanker was at the tail of a rumbling maul that would prove fruitful all afternoon.

The hosts weren’t ahead for long though, Alexander Piercey crossed for the visitors and the conversion sent them ahead. They extended their lead through Jamie Barnard shortly after and Macc were suddenly on the back foot.

The home team drew level through big Dean Williams after some more dominant forward play to round off a frenetic opening 15 minutes, the scores 12-12.

Billy Robinson then gave the blues the lead midway through the first half after yet another driving maul that Hull had no answer for.

Five minutes before the half, Mitchell Turner crossed to give the visitors the lead going in 17 – 19 at half time.

The industrious Mike Finnemore gave the Blues the lead for a third time 10 minutes in to the second half, followed shortly after by a try from Ed Stobart and the result was sealed.

Five minutes from time Ashley Platt-Hughes was on the end of it all after a fantastic break from Matt O’Regan and he scored Macc’s sixth try of the day, which he duly converted himself to.

Hull managed to get themselves a 4-try bonus point when Dominic Lespierre crossed with the final play, but their fate was already sealed and Macc ran out 36 – 26 winners.
