Sandbach 5 - Bowdon 47 (16th December)
When many games in Cheshire would have been cancelled, due to more rain, Sandbach were happy to welcome Bowdon to Bradwall Road for a re-arranged fixture. Late unavailability and illness reduced both squads to 19 players. In a competitive match, Bowdon showed a more aggressive loose game and efficient use of the back line.
Although the scoreline doesn't read well, Sandbach did put together some good phases of play and unlike previous weeks did not let their heads drop. Combined with the recent cup performance, the boys can take some positive aspects of play into the new year.
Thanks to Bowdon for a good morning of rugby and a big thank you to Steve for refereeing the fixture. We look forward to seeing you again soon.
