Sandbach 19 - Wigan 2 7

Sat 6 September 2008

Sandbach made an excellent start to the 2008/2009 campaign by bagging a decent win against rivals Wigan who were promoted as league 2 champions last season. Sandbach were promoted as runners up but Wigan defeated Sandbach home and away so this was always going to be a difficult game.

From the off it was obvious that Wigan were going to use there big pack to bulldoze their way up the field. For the first 10 minutes Wigan played this tactic very well and were denied on several occasions by some excellent line defending but eventually the Wigan number 8 crashed over from short range.

Sandbach also scored in the first half through Nick jerman, this was converted so the score stood at 7 - 7 going into the break.

The second half was predomanantly Sandbach attack although they lacked the finishing touch out wide. A scuffle around the ruck area amongst the forwards distracted the Wigan defence and colt Tom Stubbs went over untouched from close range. Con Missed.

Wigan were more than capable of coming back into the game but Sandbach eventually confirmed the Win with a try from broken play by fullback Sam Morris.

Man of the match: Sam Morris (Bricktop) had a blinder at fullback; solid under the high ball and excellent in defence. Scored a try to top off a fine performance. Unfortunatley Sam is now not available until after the school season has finished.

Tries: T Stubbs, N Jerman?, S Morris (Brick)
Cons: M Stanway x 2
