MACCLESFIELD Blues ran in six tries as they com­fort­ably dis­patched DMP 43-16 at Pri­ory Park.

Des­per­ately need­ing a win to ease any talk of rel­e­ga­tion, the Blues were on top form at home.

The match started evenly and the dead­lock was bro­ken on the 10th minute through a penalty from the vis­i­tors. Macc were in the lead one minute later af­ter Nick All­sop sniped over from close range.

The match then turned into a stop start af­fair, lit­tered with penal­ties and scrums.

DMP added a sec­ond penalty on the 21st minute to re­take the lead. In a case of Déjà vu, the Blues re­took the lead two min­utes later. Liam Parfitt driv­ing over from a maul in the cor­ner.

The vis­i­tors struck a third penalty on the 26th minute.

Macc added a third try af­ter Sam Moss drove over from a maul to make the score 17-9 at half time.

Macclesfield came out the blocks quickly pin­ning back DMP in­side their own 22 and were re­warded with a penalty try, wrap­ping up the bonus point with over half an hour to go.

Macc main­tained the con­trol and pres­sure and af­ter win­ning a turnover in­side the vis­i­tors 22, Macc pro­duce some slick hands to al­low Myles Hall to go over un­der the posts.

The vis­i­tors then pro­duced a sim­i­lar move to score their first try of the match, through Rad­wan. How­ever, Macc were soon on the front foot and pilling on the pres­sure and Ryan Parkin­son con­tin­ued his rich scor­ing run, dot­ting over from the back of a scrum.

Hall then added his sec­ond of the match on 70 min­utes, af­ter some great work from Jor­dan Brookes. This made the score 43-16 to the Blues, and their first win since week two.
