The best way to keep up to date with MANCHESTER RUGBY CLUB
1 month ago
Another week, another season (winter this time!), but the same opposition on consecutive Saturdays provided another stern test for Manchester who got that little bit closer this time.
The first leg of a cup and league double fixture over two weekends saw Burnage take the honours on the knockout competition.
On an awful day for rugby, Manchester defied the elements with their enterprising play, fully deserving the win over a fancied Northwich side.
The previous week’s impressive win made this flat performance at Warrington even more disappointing, the last quarter in particular very much out of character.

After the excitement and disappointment of the Stockport derby, followed by the disappointment at Vale of Lune, Manchester’s response was going to be important for the season ahead.
The consolation from the scoreline is that Manchester are unlikely to play a better side this campaign, something opponents said about Manchester last season on their way to the league title!
Manchester’s largest crowd for a good while, despite the poor weather, saw an exciting derby game with a disappointing twist at the end for the home fans.
It will be the season’s longest trip, but in the late summer sunshine, an early Doug Day penalty (0-3), which was added to within ten minutes (0-6) got the season on the road.
