Rochdale Cobras v Manchester Rangers



Rochdale Cobras 32

Manchester Rangers 6

On a cold and wet ‘summer rugby’ day, the Rangers travelled to top of the league Rochdale expecting a hard fought game. After a lengthy stalemate with Rochdale having the lions share of possession and territory, the Rangers line eventually broke and allowed Rochdale to go over twice before half time.

12 points behind and with the wind and rain at their backs, Rangers entered the second half confident and hit back through Scott Houston, with Nick Holt converting and up until 65 minutes into the match the scores remained 6 – 12. A late flurry of tries from Rochdale saw the home team walk away victors 32 – 6 in what was a well-deserved win with a slightly flattering score line.
