MANCHESTER MEDICS 15 LIVERPOOL ST HELENS 42
Liverpool St Helens produced a clinical display to see off the Manchester Medics with some ease and go into the Christmas Break in a handy league position. In the shadow of the Etihad stadium the Moss Laners ran in seven tries to bring their tally of season wins to 10 and set themselves up for an exciting second half of the season.
The Medics, as is their normal practice, started well, moving the ball at speed and looking dangerous in attack. They went ahead with a penalty after six minutes, 3-
The Medics try, far from aiding their challenge, seemed to be just what the doctor ordered for Darren Wilson’s men as they responded in no uncertain style with three tries in the last ten minutes of the first half. The skipper himself darted over after a catch and drive, 8-
LSH continued dishing out the medicine in the second half when centre Matt Cunliffe neatly finished off a nice move when the ball was swung out from a well worked scrum, 8-
LSH, once again, responded positively, partly inspired by the addition of Dave Cunliffe into the action at half time, and ran in two more tries. The first was a trademark finish from Darren Wilson, nipping round the blind side of a scrum, 15-
After the seasonal break, the next action is at Moss Lane on Saturday 7 January when Oswestry are the visitors.
