Sec­onds win first in three

Middleton Guardian - - LEISURE -

Lit­tle­bor­ough were to score an­other try in be­tween two tries for the visi­tors as Danny Lawlor cap­i­talised on a slow re­treat­ing Tar­leton side to squeeze in un­der the posts. So at the break Lit­tle­bor­ough took a nar­row 19-17 ad­van­tage, partly to the flaw­less kick­ing of Richard Tay­lor from the tee. The same man would add to his per­sonal points tally with a straight for­ward penalty in front of the sticks be­fore the home side pro­duced one of the best at­tack­ing moves of the sea­son to carve the vis­it­ing Tar­leton de­fence open.

Great in­ter­chang­ing of passes in mid­field al­lowed Richard Tay­lor to fizz a miss pass to Jones who drew in 2 men on his wing be­fore feed­ing Lawlor on his in­side to score in the left corner.

Tar­leton de­ter­mined not suc­cumb to a de­feat that would leave their pro­mo­tion hopes in se­ri­ously jeop­ardy, brought the gap back down to 3 points as the scrum half dum­mied his op­po­site num­ber and squirmed in for a try.

Richard Tay­lor pro­duced a won­der­ful con­ver­sion to take the score 36-26 and give Lit­tle­bor­ough the much ap­pre­ci­ated breath­ing space as well as the vic­tory to boot.
