Wilmslow Colts 24 – Macc Colts 59

Macc made the short journey to Wilmslow on the back of a solid win last week away at Heaton Moor. A few new faces this week  added to the squad which helped with the player rotation and new combinations.

 Wilmslow started extremely well and Macc found themselves 10-0 down after 5 minutes, individual mistakes needed to be fixed quickly. After some excellent forward pressure from the tight 5 Macc forced Wilmslow back into their 22, they tried to run out but some excellent tackling from Holden, Harding & Pyle saw Wilmslow drop the ball, 3 quick passes away from the breakdown and Zak Bowden scored in the corner. Macc maintained this tempo and after a break by Harry Oliver straight from the kick off Harry King was able to score in the opposite corner.  Wilmslow gathered themselves and after some excellent handling scored themselves.

Macc line out was starting to function well with Blackburn and Roberts winning some good ball against a the Sale Sharks 2nd row partnership. This allowed a good platform for Bowden to release the backs, some excellent running created a gap for Harry King to score in the corner, superbly converted by Harry Oliver.

With half time approaching Macc needed to score to go in ahead, this score  came from some excellent interplay between Briggs & McGlone to release the in form Harry Oliver who forced his way past the rushing defence to score, Harry converted his own try.

Half time Wilmslow 17 – Macc 24

The second half saw the introduction several new players, Prendergast on the Wing, Whylie at Hooker, Melville at FullBack and James Oliver at No 8. This had the immediate effect as Macc scored 6 2nd half tries. Zak Bowden was first to cross, Harry Oliver converting. James Oliver picked up a lose pass to outsprint the defence to score, Harry Oliver converted. Not to be outdone Harry Oliver then scored the next 2 tries, converting both.

Macc made several more positional changes, this did not disrupt the flow and after some great forward pressure James Meredith dummied the whole back line to score, Harry King converting for a comfortable win.

Head Coach Tony King “We need to get out of the blocks quicker as we cant afford to go behind so quickly, great interplay between forwards and backs is key to playing attractive rugby, Wilmslow are a strong team and we had to play well to beat them. Plenty to work on but a great win”
