Blues Blow Luctonians Away

Macclesfield Blues secured another five points in their final home game of the season. The Blues were dominant from the off and the pack can be very proud of their effort today, turning over consistent ball for the backs to use. The boys in blue would have wanted to do Geoff Wappett and Andy Northey proud today on what was there final home game in charge of the club.

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, Macc were half way to the important bonus point when Ashley Platt-Hughes finished off an impressive backs move, Eaton again converted to make it 14-0.

Macclesfield’s pack imposed themselves early on, and after rumbling round the fringes for a successive phases they were held up and a five metre scrum was the decision.  The dominant Blues scrum took the side over the line 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 a well worked move from an attacking line out. The Luctonians captain failed to convert his own try.

After 37 minutes Cameron Neild crossed the whitewash after some fantastic work around the fringes from scrum half Jordan Brookes who passed out the back door to out Neild in. This score sent the Blues in 26-5 up at half time.

It took around 10 minutes of the second half for a piece of action to happen and this was a visiting player being sent to the bin for ten minutes after bringing down a Macclesfield rolling maul.

Ryan Parkinson was then on the score sheet again with the Blues pack showing true dominance at the set piece, 33-5 after 57 minutes.

Almost immediately after, substitute Louis Taylor showed electric pace to finish off a well worked move after going blind from the scrum.

Just a few minutes later, the Blues were over again as Platt-Hughes secured his brace with a fantastic finish to go in under the posts. Captain Eaton converted, adding to his tally for the day, 45-5.

Giant lock Dean Williams then got the Priory Park crowd roaring, the Blues talisman picked up some scrappy ball and powered his way over the line. Tom Eaton added to his impressive kicking display to once again convert, 52-5 with just a couple of minutes left to play.

Macclesfield found the time to get another score with the last play of the game. Substitute winger Louis Taylor got his second of the game and capped off an impressive display by Macclesfield, showing why they are top at this stage of the season.
