The Blues 48 Otley 21

Macclesfield secured an important bonus point at home to Otley in the race for promotion. The game started at a furious pace and Macclesfield were first on the score sheet when winger Ed Stobart crossed out wide.

Otley responded when winger Nazir Karim carved the defence open off of a line out to go in under the posts. The Otley try was also converted by the league’s leading point scorer Mark Ireland.

Ed Stobart then crossed to get his second of the game when opened up the Otley defence by running against the grain. Captain Tom Eaton converted, The Blues 10-7 up after 15 minutes.

Then on 22 minutes Stobart completed a quick fire first half hat trick, with Eaton adding the extras once again, leaving the Blues 19-7 up.

The Blues then secured their match target of a bonus point with centre Elliot Brierley crossing the white wash. The Blues were looking impressive and being very clinical in the Otley 22.

With the Blues beginning to enjoy themselves it was time for the league’s top try scorer Ryan Parkinson scored from the back of a line out.

Otley pegged the Blues back just before the break when prop Paul Hill crossed the line, 31-14 half time and once again Mark Ireland slotted the conversion for the visitors.

The Blues came out after half time looking strong and in the 45th minute, outside centre, Brierley got his second of the afternoon. Parkinson crossed not long after to also get his second.

After these two early second half scores Macclesfield seemed to take their foot of the gas and errors began to creep into their play allowing Otley to start playing some of their own rugby. Otley gained a foothold on the game and scrum half Stephen Depledge crossed for them, leaving it 41-14 with ten minutes to play.

Ryan Parkinson then completed his hat trick and the afternoon when he crossed the line from the back of a scrum. The final score, Macclesfield 48 Otley 21.
