This is What We All Play The Game For

Macclesfield travel to Darlington this weekend for a title showdown in the National 2 North, they face Darlington Mowden Park knowing that victory will ensure they will be playing their rugby in National 1 next season.

The Blues’ captain Tom Eaton is looking forward to the challenge that faces him and his team and is hoping to call on past experience to help see the team to that vital win:

“It’s certainly the biggest game this season, I’ve been fortunate enough to be in this position with Macclesfield before the last time we won this league so hopefully that experience will stand me in good stead, particularly as we won when we needed to on those occasions.”

Macclesfield will be well rested going into this game after enjoying a well-deserved rest after five wins on the bounce. The Blues will hope this short period of rest will allow extra preparation time and recovery time for players who had picked up knocks in recent weeks. Eaton doesn’t feel the rest weekend changes much, and preparation will stay pretty much the same:

“It’s a bit strange to have a week off previously but other than that we will approach it in exactly the same way as any other, we are always thorough in our preparation so nothing needs to change but I’m sure there will be little more focus in training due to the importance of the game.”

Darlington did however have a game this weekend; they travelled to Sheffield Tigers and won comfortably 69-5 meaning Macclesfield go into this final game with a four point cushion over Stourbridge and Darlington.

Tom Eaton has confidence in his team’s ability to get the win this weekend:

“Chances are good, but chances need to be taken to matter. But I’m sure we will take them and I’m sure we will win.”

Eaton was sure to point out that although this game had such huge importance for the team, enjoyment could still be key to success:

“Really excited, this is what we all play the game for and I will be setting out to enjoy every last minute of it.”

The Blues kick off at three o’clock this Saturday, if you are unable to travel to the game with the supporters’ coaches then you will be able to follow a live blog of the game via twitter and here on the club website.
