Commentary and my observations
1st Half
Manchester in own half until first score - although we lacked aggression the early stages
Adam almost through to the line after penalty 20 yard's from their line
Lots of individual forward efforts - little support play - Solid scrummaging
Lack of support play - "rusty" play in all areas

2nd Half
Subs - 8 mins in Dan W for Luca, Kieron for Joe F and Sam W for Tom C
Stronger pack with fresh legs provided tidier ball from scrum
Max makes try saving challenge from about halfway on the wing just after Brandon's try
Down to the wire - Nathan cool as the proverbial
