Parkinson praises ‘clinical’ Blues

Macclesfield back rower Ryan Parkinson grabbed a brace on Saturday and praised the way his teammates operated in very uncompromising conditions.

“The conditions were really tough, the wind was swirling and very strong so it made passing and line outs more difficult so in that respect.

“Unfortunately in weather like that it doesn’t lend itself to fast flowing rugby so really glad to get 5 points and move on to next week,” he said.

“I think how clinical we were today was the difference, although we did dominate, they are a good side and had quite a bit of the ball and in those conditions it’s vital you take every chance on offer.”

Parkinson’s two tries on Saturday consolidated his place at the top of the try-scoring table, he now has 23 for the season and shows no sign of letting up.

“Both tries were set up well for me from the driving mauls, so they were both examples of good team work.

“I noticed on the second try the backs were in the maul as well lending a hand, you don’t see that very often,” he joked.

“The forwards have been awesome all year but the season is far from over. We need to keep focus, keep dominating and it will put us in a strong position to challenge for the league.”
