The Blues 7 – 36 Rosslyn Park

Second placed Rosslyn Park travelled to Priory Park to face bottom placed Macclesfield this weekend and ran out winners.

It took 25 minutes of rugby for the score to change, the visitors took full advantage of an overlap to score out wide.

In a scrappy first half which both defences dominated, chances were at a premium. The second score of the half came with the final play. A break away for the visitors allowed them to counter and go into half time 0-10 up.

The game changed five minutes into the second half, The Blues losing two players to the bin in quick succession and faced 10 minutes with just 13 men on the pitch.

The Blues defended valiantly throughout this period and managed to restrict the visitors to a single score during the sin bin period, fantastic footwork from Edwards creating the gap for Gash to score.

A mistake from Macclesfield at the base of the scrum awarded Rosslyn their bonus point score, McFarlane diving onto the loose ball.

Alex Lundberg then made it 0-31 to the visitors as he found a gap at the fringe to breeze in under the posts.

Ten minutes later, The Blues grabbed a consolation score through Matt King who was awarded space out wide from the back of a dominant Macclesfield scrum.

Rosslyn Park added gloss to the score with the final play of the game, Vincent getting the score, 7-36.
