Plucky Colts stick at it
MACC COLTS ................. 19 ANSELMIANS ................ 57
THE Colts expected a difficult day at the office, taking on a full strength Anselmians side with just 12 players plus a loaned prop.
The scoreline showed that the Saints made the extra man tell, but the Blues didn’t drop their heads and kept coming back for more.
Captain Tom Leicester was picked out as man of the match for his two tries and choosing the right options in midfield.
Aled Williams opened the scoring for the Blues, popping up at the right moment to touch down after Joe Stubbs had crashed over the line.
Mike Green’s defence also caught the eye as he harried the opposition at every opportunity.
Ollie Aston slotted the conversions for the Blues.
