Orrell RUFC 2xv vs Vale of Lune 4xv

Orrell RUFC 2xv secure 1st Home win of new season.

Sunny afternoon at Winstanley College and early pressure from Vale leads to a penalty converted VoL takes the lead 0-3 after 3 minutes. 7 minutes on the clock and good work allows returning vet Andy Kelly to cross the Vale line converted by Alex Gannon 7-3. One or two errors creep into the game and next scoring opportunity falls to VoL with another penalty 7-6. Orrell immediately respond with a Dane Barry try converted by Alex Gannon 14-6. Minutes later John Dickinson crosses the line for a try but conversion is missed when ball falls off the kicking tee 19-6.
Referee blows whistle for half time.

2nd half starts and Orrell are on top from the kick off. Good work from forwards allows Dante Morley-Samuels conversion by Connor Farrimond score 26-6. Veteran player/ coach Matty Stafford stumbles over the line for his 1st score of the season converted again by Connor taking score to 33-6. Two more scores by ORRELL’s Tom Bramwell and Connor Farrimond and the game finishes 47-11 to Orrell. This games qualifies for league match points and is a Cup game so Orrell match into next round.

The game was played in a great spirit so congratulations to both teams.
