A massively tight game which came down to a couple of decisions. Last year saw Eccles defeat us easily, this season, we’ve upped our game and had a couple of decisions gone our way, it would have been our day. However, they didn’t and we were beaten by a big team with plenty of running to them. All three tries in this game were well taken and it was great to watch two sets of players, do their very best.
The one massive take away from this game was 4 wins agains the head in the scrum, along with pushing their scrum back every time. A great effort. We have a superb set of kids playing and I think we’re going to have a good year.
