Macclesfield 4’s 45 – 13 Oswestry 2’s

An outstanding win by the team scoring 7 tries in the process.  Captain Ryan Brown, himself the scorer of two, using his natural pace and kicked a conversion, was delighted.  This is the second successive win for the side but Ryan lamented that his Grandad Morris missed both victories.

A full 15 players started the game and with a complete bench making sure of rotations, it was an open fast moving match and Macclesfield fielding a strong heavy pack of forwards they did not lack for mobility because the back row Matt Price, Scott Goodfellow and Simon Street covered the ground brilliantly.  Even when down to 14 due to a debatable yellow card holes were not apparantly in their defense.

Matt Coley was a guest in the boiler room, he’s visiting Macclesfield for the weekend fitted in seamlessly teaming up with Rob McLeod to add power behind the front row,a Mike Dale, Rupert Dixon and Geoff Chan.  With this set of forwards set piece possession was guaranteed and they achieved a great deal of turnover ball in the loose.

There was plenty of speed in the backs, Nick Smith at scrum half teamed well with Ben Higginbotham to become Ben’s third half back partner in three outings.  These two passed the ball sweetly to Pat Ellis and Paul Smith so Alfie Wright and Guillaume Janine had acres of space on the wings.

Players off the bench were Richard Hogg, Troy Crocker, Jeremy Bostock and Matt Price’s father Craig, somewhat jetlagged having only returned from China on Friday evening.  They all made significant contributions.

Tries were scored by Bostock, Ellis and McLeod with Joel Williamson scoring two.

Brown and his vice captain Boz were very happy with this victory, although there’s no fixture for the side next week they urged players to maintain their training so the fitness levels will be right up there when the league programme restarts in a couple of weeks.
