RFU Girls Area Finals - Sunday 8th March - We will be hosting the inaugural U.13s & U.15s RFU Girls area finals on Sunday 8th March. Games are due to kick off 1.30, we have arranged for a 10.30 kick off for the Junior teams in the morning so should hopefully finish quite early ready for the girls starting. However, with that in mind we think we will need volunteers for the following:-

•Gazebo and control tent setting up late morning/taking down after games finish


•Under 13s pitches setting up, (u15s will already be set up from the morning game)


•A group of volunteers to setup, cook, serve food and tidy up after the games


•Raffle tickets sellers (Claire Antcliffe has donated an England shirt signed by some of the England Ladies, we get to keep ½ the proceeds and the other ½ goes to the RFU Injured Players Foundation, she has also donated some wine, I also have some in my cupboard and I’m sure we can come up with some other prizes)


•People to run touch, (hopefully some of the U13s/U14s/U16s boys to assist with this)


•Pitch Marshalls, (hopefully some of the U13s/U14s/U16s boys to assist with this)


•Runners who can bring results to the control tent, (hopefully some of the U13s/U14s/U16s boys to assist with this)


Our 13s Girls are taking part in this, please come along and cheer them on.

Northwich were guilty of complacency when the Medics beat them at Moss Farm earlier in the season. However the Blacks would not repeat this lapse as they turned in a dominant performance to secure a fine victory. The Blacks were once again forced to make some personnel changes as they were without Houghton, James, Underhill and Cairns. Nevertheless this was a strong lineout with Dan Collins and Callum Hulbert drafted into the squad.


With the match only 2 minutes old Northwich opened their account. With the Medics attacking they spilled the ball. Tangi kicked ahead and the chase was on. The ball stood up kindly for Sam Jones to gather and win the foot race to the line. Dale added the extras and the Blacks were on their way. Instead of pushing on Northwich were subject to a rearguard action as the home side tried to break the line. A pattern developed with the Medics comfortable in possession and the visitors trying to shake off a stranglehold. It wasn’t until the 38th minute thate the Blacks finally added to the scoreboard. For once Northwich were patient in their approach work and after a series of incursions the powerful Tangi broke the resilient defence to score a fine try allowing Dale to add the extras. Deep in stoppage time Northwich secured a turnover ball and moved it to Naylor. He made the decisive break allowing the mercurial Gallimore to find Watts out wide who went over for a try. With Dale once again on target the Blacks went into the break with a 21-0 lead, which in all truth wa slightly flattering.


Within 5 minutes of the restart the visitors lead was extended. Having won a penalty, Northwich opted for the lineout, with the ball secured they drove for the line, Tangi peeled off the maul and proved unstoppable as he scored his second try. Dale added the extras and the blacks had secured a bonus point. Five minutes later Northwich extended their lead. John Harrison stole a lineout from the Medics. The ball was quickly moved wide eventually finding Gavin whose strong run evaded all would be tacklers to score a fine try that Dale converted. With the outcome assured you could have expected the Medics to crumble. However this was not the case they came at the Blacks with determination testing the defences to the limit. On the 72nd minute they got their reward. After a sustained assault on the Northwich line, which included them twice being held up they eventually score a well deserved try and conversion. The final score of the match came on the 75th minute when the blacks won a turnover ball. Naylor fed Gallimore who drove for the line, the ball was recycled and Jones provided Naylor with a neat pass for him to score.


Next week Northwich will take a break from league action. However they will be competing in the Intermediate Cup.


The next match for Northwich is at Home to Aspatria in the Intermediate Cup 2015 KO 2.15 pm

Cartman, Tangi, Brotherton, Harrison, Gavin, Watts, Collins, Thyne, Gallimore, Dale, Simes, Purbrick, Naylor, Sam Jones, Barber, Smith, Thompson, Hulbert
