A ten try display from the second team helped them keep pressure on the top of the table.

A ten try display from the second team helped them keep pressure on the top of the table.

A high tempo start saw Louis Whitfield, Andrew Stott and James Caldwell all crossed before the quarter of an hour mark.

James Pearson then extended the lead for the amber and blacks before the home side crossed to get on the scoreboard.

It was a captain’s display from stand-off Matt Stafford as he kicked 15 of the 67 points Orrell amassed, including a well-timed short ball to centre Matt Stott to go under the posts untouched and a penalty on the stroke of half time.

Vale of Lune were able to cross the whitewash again at the start of the second half as Orrell started slow and held the game at an even contest.

However, five tries in the final half hour of the match from, Martin Joice, Robert Lee, Wilbur Harris, Andrew Stott and a penalty try, was enough to give the away team all four points.

Orrell Rugby Union 2nd team’s next team is away at Upper Eden on the 1st December 2018, 2:15pm kick off.
