Blues 59-5 Luctonians

The Blues set off at a blistering pace and crossed over after just three minutes. Centre Elliot Brierley crossed with Captain Eaton converting.

 

Not long after Ashley Platt-Hughes finished off an impressive backs move, 14-0.

Macclesfield’s pack imposed themselves when a scrum five metres out was driven over for the league’s top try scorer Ryan Parkinson to bag his 32nd of the season, 19-0.

Luctonians then got themselves onto the scoreboard with their Captain Jimmy Norris crossing.

After 37 minutes Cameron Neild crossed the whitewash to send the Blues in to the break 26-5.

It took 16 minutes of the second half for the scoreboard to change and when it did it was try machine Ryan Parkinson who crossed again.

Almost immediately after, substitute Louis Taylor finished off a well worked move to cross out wide.

Five minutes later, the Blues were over again as Platt-Hughes grabbed his second of afternoon with Captain Eaton adding to his tally for the day, 45-5.

Giant lock Dean Williams then picked up the scraps and crossed over for his own score with not long left on the clock.

There was still time for one more score as substitute Taylor got his second of the afternoon. Tom Eaton converted to end the game, 59-5.

"Losers make excuses. We needed to be better and we weren't good enough." Typically honest from Ronan O'Gara after defeat in last season's @ChampionsCup final. Will La Rochelle go one better on Saturday?
