Mackie U16 Run Riot in Elgin

More of the same from U16 as the tries just keep on coming

Mackie travelled north on Saturday to take on bottom of the table Gordonstoun in Elgin. From the very start Mackie were relentless in their pursuit of points and for the third time this season the game was stopped early, because they managed to secure the required points differential to win the game outright.

Mackie started slowly however, and were lacklustre in their opening few rucks and mauls, They were easily forced off the ball by the supposed weaker side. A few well-chosen words of encouragement from the coaching staff soon got things back onto an even keel. It was not long before the Stonehaven side opened the scoring with a well-worked backs move, that saw the impressive Fotheringham go over in the corner.

From the resulting kick off Mackie immediately moved the ball wide to New, whose direct and aggresive running lines were a thorn in the side of the Gordonstoun defence all afternoon, and which saw him net an impressive haul of five tries for his efforts, along with a well deserved Man of the Match award.

Mackie's forwards sprang into life after the first ten minutes and were soon dominating at every breakdown and set piece play, with their own killer B's of Beeton, Berrisford and Burt leading from the front, with Burt scoring four tries to round off a fine performance.

The most impressive aspect of their game remains their teamwork and the support they provide each other with, which is an example to all. A great team spirit and a love of the game of rugby makes them a joy to watch and a force to be reckoned with.

8 wins from 8 and still 4 points clear at the top of the table. There will of course be sterner tests to come, but these boys love a challenge and they are proving to be more than a match for any team in their league.
