Blues 18-36 Rosslyn Park

Macclesfield Blues were defeated 18-36 by Rosslyn Park at Priory Park. In a match involving two out of the bottom three teams a win for Macc would have done wonders in seeing them move up the table and easing any thoughts of relegation.

The visitors started off the better side and were rewarded for this pressure with an early try, crossing in the corner after some decent early pressure. However, The Blues weathered the storm and hit back with a try of their own through Sam Broster, after some slick hands in the backs. Rosslyn Park were soon back in the lead, driving over in the 13th minute. Macc were within two points after Elliot Brierley went over after a break from Josh Redfern, Mortons kick hit the post.

The Blues took the lead for the first time on the 30 minute mark after Morton slotted a penalty. Macc maintained control for the rest of the half and were rewarded with another Morton penalty on the stroke of half time. Making the half time score 18-14.

The second half began as the first did with early pressure coming from Rosslyn Park. The Blues were able to withstand the pressure and turn the game into a midfield battle. This lasted until the 60th minute when Maccs defence was broken by Henry Robinson. The bonus point was wrapped up three minutes later after a similar try was scored, this time by Andrew Henderson, both were converted to give Park a ten-point advantage with 15 to go.

The gap was widened when the visitors slotted a penalty to extend the lead to 13 points. A fifth try was run in to effectively end The Blues’ chances of picking up a victory with eight minutes to go. And that’s how the game ended 18-36, Macc will be hoping for much better next week away at Old Albanians.
