Macclesfield Colts 10 – 28 Waterloo Colts

Travelling to Merseyside, Macclesfield Colts paid dearly for a 20 minute lapse in concentration in defence, letting opponents Waterloo pile on the points at the end of the first half and the beginning of the second. Mike Green scored the only try for the visiting team, earning himself the Man of the Match.

The Blues started well, taking the lead with an Ollie Aston penalty, after early pressure in the Waterloo twenty two. The Blues kept their lead until 25 minutes in, when the Waterloo backs ran in three tries. The second half started badly, as the opposition rumbled over for a try after their first attack. The Blues then galvanised themselves, trying to get back in the game. On ten minutes, Mike took an inside ball off Tom, then weaved his way to the line from the edge of the twenty two to be tackled over the line to score the try.

Earlier in the game, pressure from the Blues had come from George chasing down his man and Matt nicking a Waterloo lineout. Ollie Muir was busy in defence, making sure he got his man into touch. Tom spotted some space and put Aled on his way down the left wing. Promising break outs came from both the forwards and backs. Tom, Ben and George swapped passes to break out to the edge of the opposition twenty two. Coran and Mike combined to get through the Waterloo back line. Tom’s tap tackle on the opposition centre put paid to a likely scoring chance, preventing Waterloo from stretching their lead, however, an inability to pick the right moment to straighten the line in attack, hindered the Blues’ ambitions to get themselves back in the game.
