Coventry 61-14 Blues

The Blues travelled to Coventry for their third game back in National One. Looking to build upon their impressive 44-22 win over Fylde last weekend.

Coventry asserted over Macclesfield early and were ahead on the second minute after they drove over from a driving maul, Scott Tomlie being awarded the try. The hosts then doubled their lead on 11 minutes after more forward pressure was rewarded when Eoghan Grace broke two tackles to cross for the hosts.

A penalty try was awarded on the 15th minute, taking the score to 19-0. The bonus point was wrapped up before 20 minutes as Brett Daynes scored a routine two-on-one for Cov. Callum Macburnie continued the rout when crossing in the 22nd minute. However, Macc restored some pride in the shirt on 28 minutes after Sam Moss scored from a driving maul. Hooker Tolmie and number 8 Darrell Dyer added two more tries for the hosts in quick succession. Robert Knox then scored Covs eighth try of the half.

After going in 54-7 down, the game as a contest was gone, however, Macclesfield came out a different side after the break, matching Coventry until the 62nd minute when Full Back James Stokes broke the line and finished himself. Macc soon hit back, in the 65th minute when Ryan Parkinson bundled over after stealing a lineout. That proved to be the last score of the game with neither side able to carve out any scoring opportunities with the 15 minutes remaining.

The Blues improved vastly from the first half, but they leave Coventry empty handed and they’ll be looking to bounce back next week when they welcome Hull Ionians to Priory Park.
