Match Reports

MANCHESTER RUGBY CLUB

Travails at Vale…

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!

Happy Hour…

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.

The Long & Winding Road…

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.

Stockport RUFC

CASHING IN.

A new ten pound note created plenty of interest during the week but it was the silver that sparkled for the Vale.

BIRTHDAY GIFT FOR GILLY.

John Gill made his first team debut against Blackburn as a 17 year old, how fitting that the current generation made it a special day.

JUMPING FOR JOY.

Sunshine, hats, heels, tries all features of an opening thriller.
