ALTRINCHAM Kersal won 54-8 at Liverpool Collegiate on Saturday to stay top of Lancs/Cheshire Division One.

Liverpool took an early lead with a penalty which was quickly followed by an unconverted Altrincham try.

Kersal then took control which resulted in a further try which was converted.

Liverpool took advantage of a loose ball to run in a try giving a scoreline of 12-8, however the visitors started piling on the pressure and the result was a well-worked try leaving the half-time score 19-8.

In the second half it was all Altrincham, resulting in five converted tries without conceding a point.

There was some excellent work by both forwards and backs with both units combining to produce some great rugby.

This was a powerful bonus-point win for the firsts.

Kersal seconds returned to Stelfox Avenue to face Glossop seconds, aiming to get a long-awaited win.

They dominated for the majority of the game and played a good brand of rugby to win 35-8.

On Sunday, the senior colts visited Kirkby Lonsdale on the back of a five-game winning streak in the league but after trailing 17-5 at half time, the boys really needed to put in a great second-half shift.

They did just that, showing great character to turn around the score, with tries from Sam Walsh (three), Jacob Ansbro and Pat Brooks-Maher, and a penalty from Tom Gill.

The colts secured a 28-17 victory to keep them at the top of the table.

There was a great 10-7 win for the under-15s on tour against Marlow RFC in the inaugural game for the Mike Riley Memorial Trophy.

Meanwhile, the u14s secured a 31-27 win on home soil against Trentham.

Kersal firsts host Hoylake in the league on Saturday, kick off 2.15pm.
