Droy Hat trick paves way for win

Macclesfield 2nd XV 55 – Warrington 33

The first, second and third teams had a fallow weekend of rugby; following is a report from the 2nd XV fixture from the previous week, reported by Paul Jakubowski.

After a first defeat of the season at Vale of Lune last weekend, the second fifteen bounced back with a comprehensive victory at Priory Park against a game Warrington side. Pre match talk amongst the players was that while they felt that the side’s defence had been of a high standard, and that they had won matches, they had not done so by scores that truly reflected their ability. Eight tries demonstrated that they were more than capable of opening sides up.

The selection of Tom Jennings, Pete Milne and returning captain Sam Jones added first XV experience, nous and organisation to a youthful side. Macclesfield applied themselves with an aggressive defence with Max Dempsey and Jonny Thompson leading the way throughout the game. Sam Jones carried effectively alongside Carl Droy, and Tom Jennings was always busy at full back making breaks, and looking to link to the lively wings of Alex Jakubowski and Nathan Sacs, whilst Pete Milne and Louis Gray were always threatening in the centre. Before half time Gray, Hector Tomlinson, Carl Droy and Alex Jakubowski had all scored. Warrington replied with two tries themselves from their effervescent Scrum Half. There could have been another try for Macc, an attempted drop goal bounced off the post, going behind the Warrington try line, quickest to react was the ever-green Jim Curtis, who sprinted towards the ball, with the stand silent in anticipation, only for the Warrington Fullback to pip him to the touchdown!

Macclesfield put the squeeze on Stockport, with Coach Russ Tomlinson playing the full 80 at Loosehead Prop

The second half continued with some aggressive defending from Macclesfield, any turn over ball was moved quickly wide, where Warrington struggled to cope with the pace of the game, as well as the interplay between forwards and backs. Droy went over for a second try driving through three defenders to do so, and Issac Reaney continued to convert tries. However, Macclesfield could never quite shake-off a spirited Warrington side who took advantage of gaps around the breakdown, and a lack of concentration from the home side gave the visitors two scores, with their scrum half completing a deserved hat-trick. However, a second try for Gray, followed by one from Tom Jennings ensured the victory.  Gray then unselfishly set up Droy for his hat-trick before Warrington scored a consolation try to conclude proceedings.  The team now sit in second place in the Halbro North West League 1.
