In a hard fought game, Bury gave debuts to two players and only just came up short against a more experienced Rochdale side.
All the players ran hard with the ball, making plenty of good yards and regularly threatening the cobras line. Defensively they tackled bravely for the majority of the game but Rochdale capitalised on the few tackles that were missed to score easy tries. On the whole though the young Broncos put in another an encouraging performance but there is still plenty to work on at training. Debutantes Liam Collins (2) and Jimmy McCabe both got over the line for the visitors, with Lewis Keane (2) and Clifford Howard rounding out the scoring. Man of the match was awarded to Anthony Jenkinson.
