Is Seven(s) better than 15?

Capping a most successful season Macclesfield Sevens produced a successful defence of the Stoke Sevens trophy. Two events stood out. The result of their against home team Stoke was decided  only after a period of extra time by a ‘golden score’, inevitably an Alan McInnes drop goal. Their subsequent semi-final with Winnington Park also remained tied on normal time but this time it was a Mitchell try that secured the ‘golden score’ winner. Then in the final against Wolverhampton newspapers reported that the referees watch was broken so a touch line time keeper was nominated. The “time keeper” some how managed to extend the second half into a fifteen minute slog! This after Macclesfield had already played two sessions of extra time going into the final. The ultimately tired but triumphant team were; Miller, McInnes, Mitchell, Holland, Croxall, Bowyer Hope. They followed up their Stoke success in the Manchester Sevens eventually losing to Sale in the final. The scores were level, 5-5 at half-time in a tense and cagey affair. Sale eventually ran out 13-5 winners.
