Broadstreet 37-53 The Blues

 

 

The Blues made it three bonus point wins on the bounce this weekend as they came out on top of an exhilarating encounter away at bottom of the league Broadstreet. The Blues notched 8 tries as they ran out 37-53 winners.

Macc went a try down after just a minute, the hosts returning the kick off to go the length and score.

The Blues then scored two in quick succession, the first a fantastic finish from Rhodri Mayor to cap off a fine team move, and then The Blues won a turnover deep in Broadstreet territory, Macc moved the ball quickly and Elliot Brierley provided the finish.

The hosts responded with a penalty but couldn’t hold the dominant macc pack at bay when the forwards trundled over from a maul and Ryan Parkinson touched down.

Jordan Brookes then saw yellow for not rolling away and the hosts took immediate advantage to score the try and make it 17-19.

Macc with only 14 men scored again though. A dominant scrum setting the position and Dave Marwick driving over.

There was still time for the hosts to touch down again on the stroke of half time however, big back rower Chris Idehen getting his second of the game and leaving the half time score 24-26.

The hosts then went ahead for a short while at the start of the second half after adding another penalty, but it was short lived, Elliot Mills smashed through a couple of tackles and put one on a plate for Elliot Brierley to give The Blues the lead once again.

Broadstreet then went down to 14, and the blues took full advantage with Rhodri Mayor diving in in the corner once again.

Elliot Mills then got a well deserved score of his own, and a fine try too, as the tight head battered his way through tackles to score a great individual score.

Martin Kent then saw yellow for the blues and Broadstreet took their opportunity well to score. Leaving the scores at 37-43, Blues fly half Lewis Barker added a penalty soon after though to ensure it was a two score game.

The Blues then scored a tremendous try late on. Winning a line out in their own half, it was taken quickly and the boys in blue went the length, Elliot Brierley finished it off to grab his hat trick, 37-53 full time.
