Tameside Rugby latest December 7th


Although Aldwinians above lost 20-6 away at Blackburn this was a much improved performance with Aldwinians matching  the opposition in most areas of the game.

Although the better side won Aldwinians were always in the game, Andy Coxhill scored the points for Aldwinians, converting two penalties.

Ashton Rugby Club narrowly lost to Burnley in an agonisingly close game. The first half was largely played out in midfield between two well matched packs. The second half again saw neither side giving any quarter with Burnley clinging on to a one point lead. At the death Ashton were awarded a penalty thirty metres from the line unfortunately the kick drifted wide just inches outside the far upright leaving Burnley celebrating a 13-12 victory.

DUKINFIELD Rugby Club lost 41-7 at home to Manchester Medics.
