Manchester’s 27 games unbeaten run in the Lancashire Cup came to an end against a robust Warrington
Wet, cold and windy conditions met the teams who both like to play an expansive game, Warrington adjusted to the conditions quicker and were able to put the Manchester line under pressure going in at half time 0-5. Despite having plenty of possession, Manchester just couldn’t find that cutting edge until scoring under the sticks in the 40th minute to set-up a tense last 10 with the score 7-13. Warrington responded well keeping Manchester out and with a clearing kick moved the ball into the Manchester 22 which resulted in a score on the last play of the game. 7-20
Thanks to John for referring the game.
Well done & good luck to Warrington team and the coaches in the next round.
To the Manchester team, good effort, you never gave up but sometimes you have to adjust your style of play to what is in front of you. Amen
