SALFORD CITY ROOSTERS v WIGAN ST. CUTHBERTS

10th MARCH 2018

 

Today we kicked of the new season with a visit from St Cuthberts. With four key members of the squad absent we were still able to field a strong 14 players. We kicked off to the opposition and traded a couple of sets before the Wigan side went over for the first try.  It was clear to see the boys were rusty but we know what our defence is capable of and if we stuck to our game plan we would be confident in taking the victory.

 

As the scrappy first half finished the boys took on board some confidence boosting words from the coaches who told them to basically stick at it. Taking these words on board the Roosters proved to be a totally different side in the second half.  Some great defence and some well worked tries from great open play kicking ground the visitors down which enabled us to run away to a 32-16 victory.  A definite tale of two halves but our class in both attack and defence proved to be too much for the Wigan outfit. Today’s honours went to:

 

Opposition coaches MOM Sam Hill who scored three show-stopping tries and a superb fullback defensive display.  Roosters coaches MOM went deservedly to Dan Featherstone who was outstanding in defence and scored a top drawer try out-muscling and out pacing the opposition. Tommy Mercer took the top tackler award for his great defence, stopping the Wigan’s sides big guns time and time again. He tackled that much he had to come off with defence exhaustion ???.

 

Try Scorers:    SAM HILL  3,  DAN FEATHERSTONE  1,  FINLAY BUCKLEY  1,  ASHTON CAMPBELL  1

 

Conversions:  TOM BARRELL  1,  JOE HOWARD  1,  FINLAY BUCKLEY  1,  ZAC DOHERTY  1
