Review Round 16 M2EN

By Peter Ilott

Matt takes all the point to close the gap to 4, finally realising going first has it's benefits!

Matt has already made his predictions for round 17!!

Melbourne 38 - 12 Market Rasen
Melbourne secured a 5 point win against a physically bigger Market Rasen side. Dogged in defence as usual. 6 Trys scored, 5 from the backs.

On to the other games

We both agreed on Lincoln v Ashby (25-33) and Dronfield v Ilkeston (34-24). Both were high scoring games, with Try scoring bonus points for all 4 sides.

Mat predicted correctly in all the other games with all 3 being tight affairs

Ashbourne 11-14 Long Eaton. Long Eaton's good form continues

Newark 27 - 18 Loughborough. No try BP for Newark though and nothing for Loughborough.

Southwell 29 - 27 Matlock. A 5 pointer for Southwell with Matlock picking up 2 points to help their cause at the bottom.

So the table see Melbourne 16 points clear with 6 to play and 30 points available. Melbourne are now also 25 points clear of 4th placed Ashbourne.
Dronfield and Long Eaton have opened up a 7 point gap to 4th placed Ashbourne. They meet on the 9th March at Dronfield which should be a tasty encounter.
At the bottom Southwell have leapfrogged Ashby with both on 20 points, 13 points adrift of Matlock in 10th place though.

A week off next week and then the 1s and 2s travel up to Matlock on the 2nd March (KO will be 3pm)

Preview Round 16 M2EN Matt is well behind (7) and his gambles backfired last week seeing the gap open up even further
