2:53pm Monday 4th November 2013 in Sport
TRAFFORD MV travelled to Mosley Hill on Saturday The visitors kicked off with the wind behind them and it became clear that it was going to be difficult for Mosley Hill to clear their lines.
As the half progressed the worsening weather made it increasingly difficult to play rugby the way MV like to. Led by scrum half Boyle the forwards rolled up their sleeves and took the game to Mosley Hill, MV made great yards and found themselves inside the opposition 22.
Pressure told and Mosley Hill conceded a number of penalties. Hodgson found himself at the rear with the ball secured; a strong drive saw him over the line, Crampton added the extras to take the score to 0 - 7 at half time.
in the second half, Mosley Hill were on the attack and a number of penalties gave them easy territory. An easy chance of three points after MV infringed at a ruck was taken and the score moved onto 3 -7. MV responded bringing their backs into play to back up the forwards good work. Good kicking from Crampton, backed up by an excellent chase, saw MV force the turnover at the ruck and gain territory in the Mossley Hill 22. A great line from centre Gregg saw him break the would be tacklers to barrel over for the second try of the game, Crampton failed to add the extras and MV lead 3 - 12.
Trafford MV unleashed their dangerous backs and with the use of two dummy runners in midfield the ball was worked out to the far wing for Kingdon to cross and score the third try of the day, the conversion was missed and the score moved onto 3 -17.
Crampton added the extras to take the score to 3 -24.
