Blaydon 39-0 The Blues

The Blues travelled to the far reaches of the North East this weekend as they went in search of their second away victory against Blaydon.

Macclesfield travelled north expecting an extremely physical and confrontational encounter from the home side and that is exactly what they got as they went down 39 points to nil without players such as captain Mike Finnemore and forwards coach Dave Marwick as part of their pack. 

Blaydon looked to maul and scrum The Blues off the park from minute one, although Macc put up a strong fight, the sheer brute force proved too much.

The first points of the afternoon came from the boot of the Blaydon fly half as the hosts earned an early penalty at the break down.

The first try of the afternoon came from a Blaydon, with the penalty advantage they decided to chip in behind the oncoming Macc defence, the ball was pounced upon and the try awarded and converted to make it 10-0.

A twenty minute period then passed where The Blues matched Blaydon all over the park and kept the home team at bay, however when Macclesfield had possession of their own, the flow of the game was stopped by a high error count.

Blaydon got their second try of the afternoon on the half hour mark, a catch and drive line out setting the tone for the remainder of the game. This was the final score of the half meaning The Blues went in 17-0 down.

Ten minutes into the second half Macclesfield were reduced to fourteen men after fly half Tom Eaton was sent to the bin.

Blaydon made the extra man count immediately, once again from a catch and drive lineout, despite some interesting refereeing decisions.

Fifteen error stricken minutes passed before Blaydon secured their bonus point try. Strong set piece once again being demonstrated to provide the score.

With ten minutes to play, Blaydon got their fifth try, once again after some loose play from both sides, however Blaydon were clinical enough to take advantage of what seemed like every Macc mistake to make it 34-0.

In the final minute of the game, Blaydon very much summed up the days play with their sixth try, a brutal catch and drive line out providing another score, to cap of a 39-0 win, the scoreline perhaps a little generous after what was not much of a spectacle for a neutral supporter.
