The Blues 43-0 Leicester Lions

Macclesfield hosted Leicester Lions and secured their tenth win on the bounce to remain top of National Two North. Three unanswered tries in each half ensured Macc ran out comfortable 43-0 winners.

The Blues scored with just two minutes on the clock, The Blues applied pressure deep in Lions territory and lock Harrison Lewis barged over from close range, Lewis Barker added the conversion.

Just four minutes later, Macclesfield doubled their lead. Elliot Mills made the initial line break, the ball was then shipped wide to winger Charlie Venables who found Matt O’Regan with a fine offload to cap off a brilliant team try, Barker again adding the extra two points.

Jonathan Williams missed an opportunity on 20 minutes to get Leicester off the mark from the kicking tee, and was soon made to regret his miss as Macclesfield fly half Lewis Barker slotted a penalty of his own to extend The Blues lead and keep up his fine form with the boot.

David Marwick extended The Blues’ lead shortly before the break, blasting over from short range to leave the half time score 24-0.

Macc came out after half time and continued where they left off. The Blues wrapped up the bonus point on 45 minutes, Franky Barker finished off a well worked move out wide, and namesake Lewis missed his first kick of the day.

Ten minutes later Marwick completed his brace, strong set piece was awarded with good field position and Marwick again powered over from close range.

The final score of the day was secured on the hour mark, the Macclesfield set piece was turning the screw and the driving maul cantered over the try line, Ryan Parkinson was the man at the back to touch the ball down.
