“The cause is not lost.”

After watch his side surrender a 14-point lead to lose against Sedgley Park on Saturday, Blues head coach Geoff Wappett felt his side should have killed the game off in the first half.

“It’s disappointing, we had a very dominant first half.

“We were on top at the set piece, we controlled the territory and in many ways we should have killed the game off in the first half.

“We were worth more than 19 – 5,” Wappett insisted.

“If we had been a bit more precise and avoided making errors we’d have had an unassailable lead but as it turned out 14 points wasn’t enough of a gap.”

In the first 40 the Blues scrum was imperious, turning over the majority of opposition ball and providing a secure platform for their own. In the second half Sedgley brought on Ben Black at prop and he made the scrums a lot more solid.

“Their replacement at loosehead prop made a lot of difference.

“He was a strong good prop and when he came on he sured up the scrum and tidied things up.”

This weekend Macclesfield travel to Bromsgrove who are currently fighting against relegation, making it a great opportunity to make a statement in the wake of their second defeat of the season.

“Our intentions will be to pick ourselves up and dust ourselves off in the week, we have to carry on with the job.

“We need to go to Bromsgrove with a positive approach and carry on with the season, nothing is won or lost in January,” explained Wappett.

“Losing to Sedgley hasn’t helped our cause, but the cause is not lost.”
