Review Round 15 M2EN

By Peter Ilott

Pete stretches lead to 6 and offers Matt the chance to go first next time

Melbourne travelled the short distance to Loughborough and put in an assured performance for a bonus point win 29-12. Holden picked up his first Try of the season, Pagey got a brace and Rudkin scored the final try in the last minute. Loughborough's big pack provided a stern test for Melbourne, but the Melbourne defence was excellent throughout.

Onto the other fixtures - Dronfield v Southwell and Lincoln v Ashbourne both feel foul to the weather and were postponed. They may be rearranged for next Saturday. TBC

We both got the Ilkeston v Ashby result right prediciting a home win and Ilkeston won 34-15 to put some space between them and Ashby. The will be glad with the bonus point and 2 wins in a row.

Market Rasen beat Matlock 20-17 in a close encounter. No BP for Rasen but Matlock picked up a losing try bonus point. Pete taking the spoils.

Long Eaton secured a 28-7 point bonus point win over Newark to keep up the chase for Melbourne and jumping back up to second place

7 games to go.

The league table sees Melbourne stretch their lead to 17 points over Long Eaton. The top of the table remains tight with only 5 points covering 2nd to 5th and 12 points 2nd - 10th. Dronfield's game in hand could see them leap frog Long Eaton if they get a bonus point win. Ashby are 12 points adrift of 10th place, with Southwell 16 points adrift but with a game in hand. Games are running out though.

A week off next week for Melbourne 1s though there may be some rearranged fixtures
